                    IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

                              May 14, 2003

Mr. Bradley of New Hampshire (for himself and Mr. Bass) introduced the 
   following bill; which was referred to the Committee on Financial 
                                Services

_______________________________________________________________________

                                 A BILL


 
To require the Secretary of the Treasury to mint coins in commemoration 
    of the legacy of the Old Man of the Mountain, the symbol of New 
Hampshire that passed on to its granite roots in the dawn of May, 2003.

    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 ``Old Man of the Mountain 
Commemorative Coin Act''.

SEC. 2. FINDINGS.

    The Congress hereby finds as follows:
            (1) Formed by God and glaciers, five different ledges atop 
        a granite cliff created the Old Man of the Mountain whose 
        flinty visage has long represented the Granite State's 
        independence and proud traditions.
            (2) For some 10,000 years, the Old Man of the Mountain, 
        from his lofty perch, did steadfastly defy the forces of 
        gravity and nature that bring all things down.
            (3) The Old Man of the Mountain's rugged profile delighted 
        all who saw it, as it serves as a symbol of New Hampshire's 
        stony and unyielding independence and represents New 
        Hampshire's love of liberty and is deeply revered by all 
        Granite Staters.
            (4) The rocky ledges that formed the Old Man of the 
        Mountain gave way and tumbled down the slopes of Cannon 
        Mountain under a veil of fog and cloud sometime in the first 
        few hours of May 3, 2003, forever changing the landscape that 
        has long served as a New Hampshire state symbol.
            (5) The importance of the ``Great Stone Face'' as a symbol 
        of New Hampshire was eloquently noted by Statesman Daniel 
        Webster.
            (6) A commemorative coin would immortalize the watchful 
        gaze of the Old Man, bringing both national and international 
        attention to the lasting legacy of the Old Man of the Mountain 
        as well as helping to ease the loss felt by all New Hampshire 
        residents.
            (7) The proceeds from a surcharge on the sale of each 
        commemorative coin will assist the financing of a suitable 
        memorial to the oldest and proudest member of the New Hampshire 
        family, the Old Man of the Mountain.
