(This measure has not been amended since it was passed by the House on April 24, 2013. The summary of that version is repeated here.)

Directs the Speaker of the House of Representatives and the President pro tempore of the Senate to arrange for the presentation of a congressional gold medal to commemorate the lives of Addie Mae Collins, Denise McNair, Carole Robertson, and Cynthia Wesley (children who lost their lives in the September 1963 bombing of the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama, an incident recognized as a catalyst for the civil rights movement).

Requires such medal to be given to the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute in Birmingham, AL, where it shall be available for display or temporary loan to other appropriate places.

Authorizes the Secretary of the Treasury to strike and sell bronze duplicates of such medal, with amounts received from the sale to be deposited in the U.S. Mint Public Enterprise Fund.
