Cross Proposes Commemorative Lincoln Coin For Sesquicentennial Observance

A top Illinois lawmaker wants the U.S. Treasury to mint a special coin in honor of the upcoming sesquicentennial of Abraham Lincoln’s death. 


House Republican leader Tom Cross has introduced the resolution, which asks for such a coin to be produced and distributed in April and May of 2015… to coincide with the anniversary of Lincoln’s death and the re-enactment of his funeral train procession back to Springfield. 


Cross hopes lawmakers can take action on that resolution when they return for another special session the week of July 8th.
