Design Competition: Breast Cancer Commemorative Coin

Calling all artists!

The United States Mint is hosting a competition from August 1-October 17 to design the Breast Cancer Commemorative Coin. The coin, to be sold by the US Mint in 2018, is unique – it is the first pink-gold coin ever produced by the Mint and it will benefit one of our superstar member charities, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF). The bill creating the coin was enacted into law earlier this year and has the potential to raise over $8 million to fund lifesaving breast cancer research.

Ultimately one design winner (only individuals may enter) will be named by the Secretary of the Treasury in spring of 2017. The winner of the competition will receive $10,000 and their initials will appear on the coins. This is an incredibly unique opportunity for an artist to have his or her work memorialized by a limited edition, U.S. commemorative coin.
