    (a) Study.--The Secretary of the Treasury shall by June 1, 1997 
complete a study of the feasibility of a circulating commemorative coin 
program to commemorate each of the 50 States. The study shall assess 
likely public acceptance of and consumer demand for different coins that 
might be issued in connection with such a program (taking into 
consideration the pace of issuance of coins and the length of such a 
program), a comparison of the costs of producing coins issued under the 
program and the revenue that the program would generate, the impact on 
coin distribution systems, the advantages and disadvantages of different 
approaches to selecting designs for coins in such a program, and such 
other factors as the Secretary considers appropriate in deciding upon 
the feasibility of such a program. No steps taken in order to gather 
information for this study shall be considered a collection of 
information within the meaning of section 3502 of title 44, United 
States Code.

[[Page 110 STAT. 4013]]

    (b) Report.--The Secretary shall submit the study required in 
subsection (a) above, to the Committee on Banking and Financial Services 
of the House of Representatives and the Committee on Banking, Housing 
and Urban Affairs of the Senate, simultaneously on its receipt by the 
Secretary.
    (c) 50-State Commemorative Coin Program.--The Secretary shall 
determine by August 1, 1997 whether the results of the study authorized

notwithstanding the fourth sentence of subsection (d)(1) and subsection 
(d)(2) of section 5112, title 31, United States Code, commence a 
commemorative coin program consisting of the minting and issuance of 
quarter dollar coins bearing designs, selected in accordance with 
paragraph (4) of this subsection, which are emblematic of the 50

commemorative coin program is justified but that it is not practicable 
to commence the program by January 1, 1999, then he shall notify the 
Committee on Banking and Financial Services of the House of 
Representatives and the Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs 
of the Senate of such impracticability and of the date on which the 
program will commence.
            (1) Design.--The design for each quarter dollar issued under 
        the program shall be emblematic of 1 of the 50 States. The 
        designs for quarter dollar coins issued during each year of the 
        program shall be emblematic of States which have not previously 
        been commemorated under the program.
            (2) Order of issuance.--Each State will be honored by a coin 
        in the order of that State's admission to the United States.
            (3) Number of coins.--Of the quarter dollar coins issued 
        during each year of the program, the Secretary shall prescribe, 
        on the basis of such factors as the Secretary determines to be 
        appropriate, the number of quarter dollar coins which shall be 
        issued with each of the designs selected for such year.
            (4) Selection of design.--Each of the 50 designs required 
        for quarter dollars issued under the program shall be--
                    (A) selected pursuant to a process, decided upon by 
                the Secretary, on the basis of the study conducted 
                pursuant to subsection (a), which process shall involve, 
                among other things, consultation with appropriate 
                officials of the State being commemorated with such 
                design; and
                    (B) reviewed by the Citizens Commemorative Coin 
                Advisory Committee and the Commission of Fine Arts.

                issue such number of quarter dollars of each design 
                selected under paragraph (4) of this subsection in 
                uncirculated and proof qualities as the Secretary 
                determines to be appropriate.
                    (B) Silver coins.--Notwithstanding the provisions of 
                subsection 5112(b) of title 31, United States Code, the 
                Secretary may mint and issue such number of quarter 
                dollars of each design selected under paragraph (4) of 
                this subsection as the Secretary determines to be 
                appropriate with a content of 90 percent silver and 10 
                percent copper.
                    (C) Sources of bullion.--The Secretary may obtain 
                silver for minting coins under paragraph (6)(B) from
