A Positive Impact

The two Congressional bills - H.R.1619 and S.587 - are the first important step in making the Model T Commemorative Coin a reality. If both bills are enacted, the coin would be minted in 2010 and sold to collectors. One-half of the net proceeds would be put into an endowment created by the MotorCities National Heritage Area to support the celebration and preservation of the Model T story and for maintaining and expanding national Model T educational programs. The interest from the endowment would be allocated to smaller heritage organizations across the country that are best able to preserve and recount this important chapter in our history. The other half of the net proceeds would fund an endowment, the interest from which would be used by The Henry Ford to maintain and expand displays and develop new educational programs associated with the Model T story.
