US Mint Releases Limited Edition Coins to Raise Awareness, Funds for Breast Cancer
The United States Mint recently released a new limited edition coin under its Breast Cancer Awareness Commemorative Coin Program to increase awareness of breast cancer and raise funds for research, according to a press release. Three variations of the coin will be available for purchase. The $5 coin is the first pink gold coin issued by the U.S. Mint. A $1 silver coin and a half-dollar clad coin are also available. A competition was held to select the common design of each side of the coin, representing the fight against breast cancer. This year’s winner was the Mint's artistic infusion program designer Emily Damstra. She designs zoological, botanical, anthropological, ecological, and paleontological illustrations for diverse clients, and has designed more than a dozen coins for the Royal Canadian Mint and a few postage stamps for the United Nations Postal Administration.
