Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur of Ohio, the “Mother of the World War II Memorial”, will host a special program in the Gold Room of the Rayburn House Office Building (Room 2168) on Monday, December 4th, at 5:30 p.m. ET, to offer Members of Congress and the public the opportunity to celebrate the passage of the Greatest Generation Commemorative Coin Act and to view the beautiful designs for the 2024 Greatest Generation Commemorative Coins.
The Greatest Generation Commemorative Coin Act, signed into law on August 3, 2022, authorizes the U.S. Treasury to mint coins in 2024 in commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the dedication of the World War II Memorial. Surcharges from the sales of the coin will be provided to the Friends of the National World War II Memorial to support the National Park Service in maintaining and repairing the World War II Memorial, and for educational and commemorative programs. The coins will be available for purchase from the U.S. Mint, beginning in late-February of 2024 and throughout 2024 only.
