If you love Braille, want to learn more about it, or want to join us in our
effort to bring awareness to the Braille literacy crisis, we urge you to
attend this extraordinary event. It is not often that such a unique
opportunity arises, and we hope that you will join us as we celebrate this
defining moment in American history. The Louis Braille Bicentennial Silver
Dollar is the first United States coin to contain proper tactile Braille.


Festivities begin at 10:00 a.m. and will last until approximately 1:00 p.m.
Attendees will have the first opportunity to purchase the Louis Braille
Bicentennial Silver Dollar.  U.S. Mint Director Ed Moy will speak at the
event and will also be available to sign letters of authenticity.  


Dr. Fred Schroeder will be the master of ceremonies and Dr. Marc Maurer will
offer the keynote address.


A Braille fair with fun activities for all ages will be held from 11:00 a.m.
to 1:00 p.m. in conjunction with the launch ceremony.  

The event will also mark the nationwide release of a groundbreaking report
on the Braille literacy crisis in America––you will not want to miss it. 

You can register to attend the event by going online to the HYPERLINK
event registration form or by calling (410) 659-9314, extension 2230.
