Marine Corps 230th Anniversary Commemorative Coin Act - Directs the Secretary of the Treasury to mint and issue not more than 500,000 one dollar coins emblematic of the warrior ethos of the United States Marine Corps.

Requires: (1) all coin sales to include a surcharge of $10 per coin; and (2) all surcharges to be paid to the Marine Corps Heritage Foundation for construction of the Marine Corps Heritage Center.

Prohibits such surcharge with respect to the issuance of any coin during a calendar year if the issuance would result in the number of commemorative coin programs issued during such year to exceed the annual two commemorative coin program issuance limitation. Authorizes the Secretary of the Treasury to issue guidance to implement this limitation.
