Dear Mr. Ryder:

In its meeting of 17 October, the Commission of Fine Arts reviewed a set of alternative designs for a medal honoring the U.S. Navy, part of a series of commemorative medals for the nation’s armed forces. Consistent with the preferences of the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC) and the Mint’s liaison, the Commission members recommended obverse alternative #12 and reverse alternative #4; they agreed with the CCAC’s finding that this pairing would effectively illustrate the personnel, equipment, and mission of the U.S. Navy.

As always, the staff is available to assist you.
