    To provide for the issuance of a coin to commemorate the 400th 
                anniversary of the Jamestown settlement.

    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the 
United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

    This Act may be cited as the ``Jamestown 400th Anniversary 
Commemorative Coin Act of 2003''.

SEC. 2. FINDINGS.

    The Congress makes the following findings:
            (1) The founding of the colony at Jamestown, Virginia, in 
        1607, the first permanent English colony in America, and the 
        capital of Virginia for 92 years, has major significance in the 
        history of the United States.
            (2) The Jamestown Settlement brought people from throughout 
        the Atlantic Basin together to form a society that drew upon 
        the strengths and characteristics of English, European, 
        African, and Native American cultures.
            (3) The economic, political, religious, and social 
        institutions that developed during the first 9 decades of the 
        existence of Jamestown continue to have profound effects on the 
        United States, particularly in English common law and language, 
        cross cultural relationships, manufacturing, and economic 
        structure and status.
            (4) The National Park Service, the Association for the 
        Preservation of Virginia Antiquities, and the Jamestown-
        Yorktown Foundation of the Commonwealth of Virginia 
        collectively own and operate significant resources related to 
        the early history of Jamestown.
            (5) In 2000, Congress established the Jamestown 400th 
        Commemoration Commission to ensure a suitable national 
        observance of the Jamestown 2007 anniversary and to support and 
        facilitate marketing efforts for a commemorative coin, stamp, 
        and related activities for the Jamestown 2007 observances.
            (6) A commemorative coin will bring national and 
        international attention to the lasting legacy of Jamestown, 
        Virginia.
            (7) The proceeds from a surcharge on the sale of such 
        commemorative coin will assist the financing of a suitable 
        national observance in 2007 of the 400th anniversary of the 
        founding of Jamestown, Virginia.
