Girl Scouts of the USA Centennial Silver Dollar
In 2013, the United States Mint honored the 100th anniversary (centennial) of the Girl Scouts of the USA by minting a commemorative coin. The silver dollar’s designs symbolize the Girl Scouts anniversary.
The Act was passed in honor of the Girl Scouts and of the achievements of the 59 million women across the nation whose lives have been influenced by Girl Scouting. The coin will be made in proof and uncirculated qualities. Surcharges from the coins’ sale will be paid to the Girl Scouts of the USA to help fund Girl Scout programs.
The Girl Scouts was established on March 12, 1912, by Juliette Gordon Low in Savannah, Georgia. A century later, the organization had more than 3.1 million members in 47,744 troops throughout the United States and its territories.
Members of the Girl Scouts are part of an international family of 10 million girls and adults. It is the world’s main leadership organization dedicated solely to building girls’ characters and skills for success.
