Joining us in this episode of the CoinWeek Podcast is Holly Rotondi, Executive Director of the Friends of the National World War II Memorial.
Holly is working with a bipartisan group of legislators to shepherd the creation of a new commemorative coin program to support the conservation of the National World War II Memorial.
The National World War II Memorial was dedicated on May 29, 2004, and honors the 16 million Americans who served in the war. The site is beautiful and attracts millions of visitors each year.
Time and the tremendous popularity of the memorial have taken a toll on the monument and some repairs are necessary to preserve its beauty for years to come. In our conversation, you will learn about the effort to get a commemorative coin bill passed and what it’s like working on a bill at the ground level.
