SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Presidential $1 Coin Act of 2005 requires a redesign of the $1 coin as a multi-year circulating commemorative in the model of the 50 State Quarters® program. The legislation requires the Secretary of the Treasury (Secretary) and the Board to consult regularly with a coin users group. The purpose of these consultations is to obtain individual perspectives from various stakeholders representing businesses, agencies, and other interested parties. This information will assist the Secretary and the Board in accurately gauging the demand for coins and anticipating and eliminating obstacles to the easy and efficient distribution and circulation of $1 coins as well as other coins. Holding these forums is one of several measures that 31 U.S.C. 5112(p) now requires the Secretary and the Board to take to ensure that adequate supplies of coins are available for commerce and collectors. This is not a public meeting, and attendance is by invitation only. Persons interested in attending the forum should use the contact information in this notice.
