Mother's Day Gift Idea: 2013 Girl Scouts of the USA Commemorative Silver Dollar



Here’s a fresh gift idea that inspires and pays tribute to a piece of history—give the Girls Scouts of the USA Centennial Silver Dollar. For the first time ever, the Girl Scouts has a commemorative coin, one of only two commemorative coin programs that will be issued by the United States Mint this year, and the first dedicated to a girls’ organization. The commemorative coin is a great gift idea for Mother’s Day! It’s also a winning choice for girls, Girl Scout alumnae, coin collectors, and lovers of unique historical collectibles. President Obama signed the legislation authorizing minting of the coin after passage in the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate.

This beautiful coin features three girls of different ages and backgrounds on the heads side, and on the reverse side it shows the Girl Scouts’ 100th Anniversary logo, along with the inscription COURAGE, CONFIDENCE, CHARACTER (from the Girl Scouts mission to “build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place”). See more about the coin at www.girlscouts.org/coin.

The Girls Scouts of the USA Centennial Silver Dollar  will be available in uncirculated and proof qualities starting on February 28 while supplies last, at a cost of $X plus $4.95 shipping and handling. Place your order by calling 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468) or order online at www.usmint.gov.

Support the future of Girl Scouts while also giving a piece of history. The Girl Scouts of the USA will receive a $10 surcharge (already included) from your purchase for national program development and delivery.
