First link, I like obverse #8, then 2 and 4; reverse #4 or 7.

Second link, obverse #1, 6, maybe 3; reverse #3A or 5.

Some interesting choices, but I'm not a fan of so many words and some of the designs don't depict a very strong meaning.

Here are a few links to current design candidates for the 2020 Women's Suffrage medal and coin:

These designs are for the medal only. They might be modified for the commemorative dollar coin, or other totally different designs may be proposed. I'm hoping for new designs, as IMHO these are fairly mundane.

If I'm reading the Coin World article correctly, it looks like the CCAC recommended designs H-O-1 & H-R-3 or 4 from the historic designs and M-O-1 or 1a and M-R-8 from the modern designs. AFAIK there will only be one medal, so it's unclear to me why the designs were separated into historic and modern categories, although I suppose that Sec Mnuchin could authorize two medals (or a hundred for that matter since these things aren't authorized by legislation )

Yes, the designs posted on the Mint's web site are presented as being for the silver medal, but the two Coin World articles also discuss the possible use of the modern designs for the potential silver dollar.

From the October 27th Coin World article:

Quote:
Mint spokesman Michael White said designs with historic imagery will appear on the silver medal. The imagery symbolic of the modern women's movement is being considered in anticipation of the coin legislation being passed, White said.

Because many of the women during the suffrage movement wore bonnets, I believe the proposed commemorative silver dollars should be domed like a hat.

Interesting. I generally dislike designs with people on them, but of course they will pick one of those.

No.

this is what I said earlier, they might be modified for the coin, but IMHO it would be extensive modification. It would have to include

Quote:
(2) DESIGNATIONS AND INSCRIPTIONS.—On each coin minted under this Act, there shall be—
(A) a designation of the value of the coin;
(B) an inscription of the year ''2020''; and
(C) inscriptions of the words ''Liberty'', ''In God We Trust'', ''United States of America'', and ''E Pluribus Unum.''
as required by the authorizing legislation.

The CCAC recommended designs are already quite detailed and it just doesn't seem like there's a lot of room for the required items to be added, but I suppose the Mint engravers could shoe horn them into the recommended designs somehow. I'm still hoping for new designs

I will not bother to create a list, but there are only a few that I really dislike.

I can imagine much worse.

However, I can also imagine new designs that are even better than the ones I really like.

Trump quote: "I'm curious why wasn't it done a long time ago? And also, I guess the answer to that is because now I'm president, we get things done."

Don't mean to be political, but that is objectively funny.

It also appears likely that the Mint will issue a coin and medal set next year in the same style as the one it did for the American Legion this year... I'd be a buyer of the set if it gets produced.


Quote:
As would I. I really like this idea because I really like my American Legion silver coin and medal set.

I will definitely be in for another coin and medal set in 2020 because I'm very happy with my American Legion one. Unlike this year, however, I'll have to resist the urge to also buy the individual uncirculated dollar.

Although the pair do look quite nice together...

I think mellamobradley46's post was triggered by this, but just in case not...President Trump signed this commemorative coin bill into law on November 25th (Monday of this week). It's a go for 2020!

As a reference here are two UK coins related to voting - 2003 Suffragettes coin (Woman's Vote) and the 2018 People's Act coin.






So I am hoping the US Mint ends up producing a coin that is different from either of these.
