Missouri's US senators back World War I coin

Monday, August 4, 2014 | 8:12 a.m. CDT

JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri Sens. Roy Blunt and Claire McCaskill are joining an effort to honor veterans of World War I with a commemorative coin.

The senators are co-sponsoring legislation that would establish a competition to design a commemorative World War I coin that would be produced by the U.S. Treasury.

Proceeds from the coin would help cover the expenses and go to the World War I Centennial Commission for activities that recognize the war.

World War I lasted from 1914 to 1918.

The coin legislation also has been backed by other members of Congress.
