Mint's Artistic Infusion Program

    Summary: The United States Mint is accepting applications from 
professional artists to fill up to ten new Associate Designer positions 
in its Artistic Infusion Program to help design United States coins and 
medals. The Artistic Infusion Program was created in 2003 to enrich and 
invigorate the design of United States coins and medals by developing a 
pool of professional artists (Master & Associate Designers) and college 
and graduate-level art students (Student Designers) in visual arts who 
will be invited to create and submit new designs for selected coin and 
medal programs throughout the year.
    The United States Mint encourages applications from talented 
artists, representing diverse backgrounds and a variety of interests 
reflecting those of the American people, who will look at coin design 
in new ways. Artists selected to participate in the program will be 
paid an established fee for their work, and those whose designs are 
used for certain coins and medals will be named as the designer in 
historical documents, including certificates of authenticity and
