Support The Mark Twain
Commemorative Coin Act
The Mark Twain Commemorative Coin Act is legislation introduced by Representative Blaine Luetkemeyer [R-MO] and Senator Richard Blumenthal [D-CT] and would mint a coin to honor Mark Twain’s contribution to American history and literature. Proceeds from the sale of this coin would benefit four non-profits dedicated to Twain’s legacy: The Mark Twain Boyhood Home and Museum, Hannibal, Missouri; The Mark Twain House & Museum, Hartford, Connecticut; the Center for Mark Twain Studies at Elmira College, Elmira, New York; and, The Mark Twain Papers & Project at the Bancroft Library of the University of California, Berkeley.
U.S. House Passes Twain Coin Act
Great news! H.R. 2453, the Mark Twain Commemorative Coin Act, has passed the House of Representatives after being co-sponsored by 298 Members of the House. We now need to garner sponsorship by 67 Senators (for S. 1929) to enable the Senate to consider and pass the legislation.
