American Veterans Disabled Commemorative Coin

A bill directing the U.S. Mint to issue 350,000 $1 silver commemorative coins in 2010 honoring disabled veterans was officially presented to President Bush, July 7.

H.R. 634 passed in the House and Senate last month and was cleared for the White House on June 18. With its official move yesterday, no more steps remain for H.R. 634 to become law other than the presidentís ink.

The billís overwhelming support guarantees that will happen. Itís only a matter of time, and most likely within days.

This Act Directs the Secretary of the Treasury to mint and issue $1 silver coins emblematic of the design selected by the Disabled Veteransí LIFE Memorial Foundation for the American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial, in commemoration of disabled American veterans.

Expresses the sense of Congress that, to the greatest extent possible, the coins should be struck at the U.S. Mint at West Point, New York.

Limits the period for coin issuance to the calendar year beginning on January 1, 2010.

Imposes a $10 surcharge per coin, to be distributed to the Disabled Veteransí LIFE Memorial Foundation for the purpose of establishing an endowment to support the construction of American Veteransí Disabled for Life Memorial in Washington, D.C.

Prohibits a surcharge with respect to the issuance under this Act of any coin during a calendar year if, at the time of issuance, it would result in more than the statutory maximum of two commemorative coin programs per year.
