Womack Delighted by U.S. Marshals Coin Design
Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) today released the following statement after the unveiling of the U.S. Marshals Museum 225th anniversary commemorative coins:
“I’m delighted by the designs for the U.S. Marshals Service commemorative coins. These coins highlight the Marshals’ long history of justice, integrity, and service, and their sale will be driven by high demand and help fund the U.S. Marshals Museum in Fort Smith – a world class museum and permanent tribute to one of America’s greatest law enforcement institutions.”
The United States Marshals Service 225th Anniversary Commemorative Coin Act (P.L. 112-104) was introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives by Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) on March 2, 2011. The bill directed the secretary of the Treasury to mint and issue $5 gold, $1 silver, and half-dollar clad coins emblematic of the 225 years of exemplary and unparalleled achievements of the U.S. Marshals Service to help fund the U.S. Marshals Service Museum in Fort Smith, Arkansas, and the preservation, maintenance, and display of artifacts and documents in the museum. The act was signed into law on April 2, 2012, and the coins will be available next year.
