Souvenir Gold Dollar in Honor of M’Kinley

 

Bill Favorably Reported by House Committee on Coinage.

     Washington, Jan. 18.—A hundred thousand souvenir gold dollars commemorating erection of the $300,000 memorial building soon to be dedicated at Niles, Ohio, in honor of William McKinley, would be coined under a bill favorably reported today by the house committee on coinage, weights and measures. The McKinley birthplace memorial association is to be permitted to sell the coins at a premium to help pay for construction and maintenance of the building.
