The bill calling for a 2021 gold $5.00, silver $1.00 and CuNi $0.50 clad commemorative coins to commemorate the opening of the National Law Enforcement Museum has passed the House and Senate and will soon be on the president's desk for signature into law.

Assuming he signs the bill, the 2021 commemorative coins will thus be set. The Christa McAuliffe 2021 commemorative silver dollar bill has already become law, so the Law Enforcement Museum coins will be the second program for 2021.

It appears the only way the Morgan and Peace dollar recreations will appear in 2021 is via the gold versions under discussion elsewhere here on CCF.

If the National Law Enforcement Museum sounds familiar, it's because back in 1997 the Mint issued a commemorative silver dollar whose surcharges went to a fund for the maintenance and repair of the National Law Enforcement Memorial. The Museum has been built across from the Memorial.

The 1997 surcharges ultimately went to the Department of the Interior which maintains the Memorial. The surcharges for the new coins will go to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, Inc. for its use with educational and outreach programs and exhibits.

As I mentioned above, the 2021 coin will be issued to commemorate the opening of the National Law Enforcement Museum -- a museum that opened back in 2018. But what's a few years among friends (and collectors)!

One would think a second coin of the same topic is over kill, but that's just me.

IMHO the 97 coin is one of better designed moderns. Hope they do as well with the 2021 coin.

The CCAC is meeting on 9/22-23/2020 to discuss these coin designs (and others).

If you're interested, then you can view the proposed designs on the Mint's website.

I'm glad there are 3 separate designs and not a single design for all denominations. None of the line art designs particularly "WOW" me though.

with both sentiments. I'm never a fan of shared designs (with the exception of the Apollo coins). None of the Law Enforcement drawings jump out at me either, except for LE-S-O-06 (if the intent is to honor fallen officers). The use of lions is also rather repetitive since Lions Club program was only three years ago.

Of the designs the ones I do like most out of the options do not have people or animals in them. No Silver ones are of interest to me. The only Clad and Gold ones I like would be: LE-C-O-09, LE-G-R-05.

Underwhelming for any of them though in my opinion.

I don't get the lion connection, but I did show the designs to some non-collectors. Many of them would buy one if the design had the police K-9 or police horse as part of the design. People love animals.

For those unaware of the lion connection...

From the Memorial's web site:

Bordering the Memorial's beautifully landscaped park are the two tree-lined "pathways of remembrance" where the names of the fallen officers are engraved. Each of the pathway entrances is adorned with a powerful statuary grouping of an adult lion protecting its cubs. Sculpted by Raymond Kaskey, the bronze statues symbolize the protective role of law enforcement officers and convey the strength, courage and valor that are hallmarks of those who serve and protect.

According to the Commemorative Coin Reform Act, limitations Since 1998, only two commemorative coins may be authorized for any given year.

the Morgan and Peace dollar will not apply to this limitation because they will be designated numismatic items. so in theory, they will NOT be commemoratives, but instead a continuation of the series.

So, the idea isn't that it's a "commemorative" at all, it's bringing back the large dollar morgan and Peace dollar to honor the 100 year anniversaies, and striking new ones for the series.

they wrote in the loophole.

Just FYI, the legislation authorizing each modern US commemorative coin has included language specifying that they are to be considered "numismatic items" for decades. This is not a point of distinction between them and the proposed Morgan/Peace dollar coin.

I was just thinking that commemorative coins are still numismatic items. Thank you for pointing that out.
