On May 7, 2014, Senator Christopher S. Murphy [D-CT] and Senator Richard Blumenthal [D-CT] introduced bill S.2303, the United States Coast Guard Commemorative Coin Act. It calls for the U.S. Mint to issue coins to honor the men and women of the Coast Guard and support the establishment of the National Coast Guard Museum in New London, Connecticut.
“The brave men and women who serve our country in the United States Coast Guard should have their legacy honored for generations to come,” Sen. Murphy said in a news release. “The new United States Coast Guard Museum in New London will showcase the Coast Guard’s rich history and its noble contributions to our country. Our bipartisan bill will provide further support to this important project and I urge my colleagues to back it.”
