Sign Up for Next Tuesday's Coin Content Webinar
As the December 31, 2014 deadline for the U.S. Mint to issue a report on its research findings and recommendations to Congress, the leadership of the U.S. Mint have accepted AMOA's invitation to participate in a webinar to provide you with an update on the status of the project, as well as the opportunity to direct questions to Mint officials involved in this initiative.
The webinar--to be organized by the Dentons' Public Policy and Regulation group in Washington, D.C.--will be moderated by John Russell, a principal in the practice there. The webinar presenter will be Jon J. Cameron, director of Coin Studies at the U.S. Mint in Washington, D.C. Jon J. Cameron, director of the U.S. Mint's Office of Coin Studies, will be the presenter at the AMOA-sponsored webinar at 2 p.m. ET on Tuesday, July 22, 2014.
The webinar is set for 2 p.m. ET on Tuesday, July 22. The good news is that the webinar is open--and FREE--to all AMOA members, but space is limited, so those interested in participating should sign up as soon as possible.
As previously reported in Off-The-Top and in the industry trade press, the U.S. Mint is investigating options for changing the composition of coinage, as directed by the U.S. Congress as part of the Coin Modernization, Oversight and Continuity Act of 2010.
AMOA has met with Mint officials, participated in meetings with lawmakers and their staffs on Capitol Hill and is a founding member of the "Don't Change Our Change" coalition comprised of several industry organizations and companies.
Last week, AMOA announced it will contribute to the funding of a Coalition-sponsored research report, designed to provide fact-based documentation on the impact change to coin composition will have in various sectors of the U.S. economy.
In addition to the research report, the Coalition is also planning to conduct a one-day "Industry Advocacy Day" on this issue, where members of AMOA and other coalition constituents will be invited to participate in visits with members and legislative staffs on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. The dates of this event have been set for September 17-18, 2014--see above story.
