Breast Cancer Awareness Commemorative Coin
Congresswoman Maloney is the proud author and sponsor of the Breast Cancer Awareness Commemorative Coin Act, which was signed by President Obama on April 29, 2016. The law establishes a commemorative coin program at the U.S. Mint that has the potential to raise an estimated $8.5 million in private funds for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, the highest rated breast cancer organization in the U.S.
Coins will go on sale on March 15, 2018 and will be sold through December 31, 2018.
This commemorative three-coin program includes the first coin the U.S. Mint will issue in “pink gold,” a unique formula created especially in recognition of the color most closely associated with the fight against breast cancer. The Mint will also produce silver and clad coins with the design unveiled this past October. Surcharges from the coin sales will benefit BCRF to support breast cancer research and cover the costs of the program, no taxpayer dollars will be used. BCRF is the top rated breast cancer research organization in the country, with an A+ rating from Charity Watch and 4 out of 4 stars from Charity Navigator.
