The United States Commission of Fine Arts published its agenda for the July 27, 2006 meeting. On the agenda is the final design review for the Little Rock Central High School Desegregation 50th Anniversary Commemorative one-dollar silver coin. Public Law 109-146 (GPO: Text, PDF), authorizes the minting of 500,000 $1 coins commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the landmark desegregation of Little Rock’s Central High School.
This commemorative will be available in 2007. The law prescribes that a $10 surcharge will be added to the sale of the commemorative coin. That money will be used by the Department of the Interior to enhance education, maintenance and make improvements to Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site.
