BALTIMORE – United States Mint Director Ed Moy, joined by National Federation of the Blind (NFB) President Marc Maurer, launched the Nation’s first coin with readable Braille during a ceremony today at the NFB headquarters in Baltimore.  The coin commemorates the life and work of Louis Braille, who developed the tactile method of reading and writing used by the blind.  The ceremony included a videotaped message from United States Senator Christopher J. Dodd, one of the primary sponsors of the “Louis Braille Bicentennial-Braille Literacy Commemorative Coin Act” (Public Law 109-247).
