The National Purple Heart Hall of Honor Commemorative Coin Act (H.R. 1683), if passed, would authorize the U.S. Treasury to produce $5 gold coins, $1 silver coins, and half-dollar clad coins at the United States Mint at West Point. These coins would be sold in limited quantities. After production costs are recouped by the U.S. Treasury, proceeds from sales of the coin would go to the National Purple Heart Hall of Honor to allow the organization to develop and renovate its facilities.
Stephanie Keegan said, “As the legislative director of the Purple Heart Hall of Honor, Inc., I am thrilled to be a part of the effort to gather support for the National Purple Heart Hall of Honor Commemorative Coin Act. This legislation was written by Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney, who is a remarkable supporter of the veteran community. When H.R. 1683 is passed it will go a long way to helping with improvements and programs at the museum to help honor those who have given so much in support of our country.”
