Next year marks the 100th anniversary of Mother’s Day, and Congress is being asked to mark the occasion with a commemorative coin.

The Mother’s Day Centennial Commemorative Coin Act was introduced in the House May 9 by Rep. David McKinley of West Virginia.

It calls for the U.S. Mint to issue not more than 400,000 $1 silver coins with the 2014 date. The coins are to be 90 percent silver, 1.5 inches in diameter, weigh 26.73 grams and be issued in uncirculated and proof quality.

The coins are to be minted for one year only.

A $10 surcharge on each coin would be distributed equally to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the National Osteoporosis Foundation.

It appears the Commemerative Coin program is revisiting history. Wasn't this a similar thing in the 1950's when a politician thought it would be great to commemerate event X with some coin to benefit their cause? This is getting a bit ridiculous.
