Girl Scouts of the USA Centennial Commemorative Coin Unveiled

The design is set for the 2013 Girl Scouts of the USA Centennial Silver Dollar.

The obverse (heads side) design depicts three girls who represent the different ages and the diversity of the Girls Scouts of the USA. Inscriptions include COURAGE, CONFIDENCE, and CHARACTER, key elements of the Girl Scouts mission statement. Additional inscriptions are 2013, LIBERTY and IN GOD WE TRUST. The 100th anniversary Trefoil symbol signifies its centennial anniversary.

The reverse (tails side) design depicts the iconic Trefoil/profiles symbol of the Girl Scouts of the USA with the inscriptions UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, E PLURIBUS UNUM, $1 and GIRL SCOUTS.

The United States Mint will produce up to 350,000 coins in 90 percent silver. The legal tender coin, which will have a face value of $1, will be available in both proof and uncirculated qualities. Surcharges collected from coin sales are authorized to be paid to the Girl Scouts of the USA, which will make funds available for Girl Scout program development and delivery. The United States Mint expects the coins to be available for purchase early in 2013.
