Call for Recommendations: Prominent American Women and the Circulating Collectible Coin Redesign Act of 2020
The National Women's History Museum is pleased to partner with the United States Mint, the Smithsonian Institution American Women's History Initiative, and the Bipartisan Women's Caucus as consultants on the Circulating Collectible Coin Redesign Act of 2020.
The Circulating Collectible Coin Redesign Act of 2020, Public Law No 116-330 (01/13/2021) (“Act”), directs the Secretary of the Treasury (“Secretary”) to redesign and issue quarter-dollar coins that feature designs on the reverse emblematic of the accomplishments of a prominent American woman (“Program”). As part of the Program, each year, over a four-year period (2022-2025), the United States Mint (“Mint”) will issue quarter-dollar coins bearing five different reverse designs, each emblematic of the accomplishments and contributions of one prominent woman of the United States. The contributions may come from a wide spectrum of accomplishments and fields, including but not limited to suffrage, civil rights, abolition, government, humanities, science, space, and arts.
The Secretary will select the women to be honored after soliciting recommendations from the general public, and in consultation with the Smithsonian Institution American Women’s History Initiative, National Women’s History Museum, and the Bipartisan Women’s Caucus (“Consultants”).
Please fill out the form below to provide your recommendation for inclusion in this program. Please note, the Act requires that the designs may not feature any living person, and thus all of the women being honored must be deceased. The National Women's History Museum will compile this list and share with consulting partners and the United States Mint for consideration. If you'd like to recommend multiple women for inclusion, please complete the form for each recommendation.
Submissions will be accepted through June 30, 2021 at 11:59 p.m.

The woman's year of birth, if known.
