A congressman has proposed a US commemorative coin program to honor dogs in 2023.

From Coin World:

Dogs could receive 2023 commemorative coin program
Published: Oct 6, 2021, 11 AM

Legislation was introduced for a three-coin commemorative program for 2023 recognizing working dogs in the military and their continued service after retirement from active duty.

The legislation, H.R. 5232, was introduced Sept. 10 in the House by Rep. Patrick T. McHenry and referred to the Committee on Financial Services for further consideration.

    So these will (as I understand the bill) commemorate specific dogs that had outstanding performances.... They certainly were/are unsung hero's of our military. Cheers, RickO

    Put Hammy and Olivia on it. The most wonderful Corgis on the internet 😉🙀🦫
    PS. Cat and beaver don’t seem to be interested. I’ll explain the military/ police aspect and I’m sure they will understand. 😉

    Would not support this at all... unless they included my favorite TV dog as a child, the one standing next to the child actor who autographed this photo. :)
