Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial One Cent Coin
© 2013 The Institute for Small Town Studies
proposal was submitted to Congress authorizing the US Mint to produce Dr. King commemorative coins, with
the proceeds of sales going to the Library of Congress - to purchase materials related to Dr. King's legacy.
The Senate bill was offered three times (S.355, S.377 , and S.2146) garnering 26, 24 and 28 co-sponsors.
The House bill was introduced twice (H.R.1184 and H.R.589) attracting 148 and 294 co-sponsors.
Sadly, neither bill made it out of Committee, and this memorial was never produced.
