Although I have a complete set of silver Presidential Medals in NGC/PCGS holders that state Coin and Chronicles on the labels, I still think the U.S. Mint should distinguish these medals when they're issued again as part of the current Presidential Silver Medals program. Below is the text of a letter that I sent to U.S. Mint Director Gibson concerning the matter:

Dear Ms. Gibson,
I am writing in concern about the U.S. Mint's Presidential Silver Medals program. At the current rate of production and distribution, the silver medal honoring Theodore Roosevelt will be issued in 2025.
This will mark the first time that the program will offer a silver medal of a president that has already been honored with a silver medal produced via a U.S. Mint Coin and Chronicles set. A silver medal of Theodore Roosevelt was included with the Coin and Chronicles set in 2013.
The purchasers of the 2013 Coin and Chronicles set were thrilled to receive the limited-edition silver medal of Theodore Roosevelt, so it will be disappointing when the same silver medal is issued in 2025 as part of the current Presidential Silver Medals program.
Other presidents who have been honored with silver medals in the Coin and Chronicles sets include Franklin D. Roosevelt (2014), Harry S. Truman (2015), Dwight D. Eisenhower (2015), John F. Kennedy (2015), Lyndon B. Johnson (2015) and George H.W. Bush (2021). The George Herbert Walker Bush Coin and Chronicles set is still available through the U.S. Mint catalog, with the description stating, "The Bush $1 Reverse Proof Coin and Silver Presidential Medal are only available in this set!"
Consequently, I am asking if it is possible for the U.S. Mint to slightly alter the designs in its current Presidential Silver Medals program for Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry S. Truman, Dwight D. Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson and George H.W. Bush. Perhaps a mint mark or privy mark could be added to these specific medals, in order to distinguish them from the medals previously issued in the Coin and Chronicles sets.
Thank you for your consideration.
FYI: My current registry set of Coin and Chronicles Set Medals, titled Chronic coinitis, ranks at 14.
