Celebrate This July 4th with A Gift of Girls’ History: 2013 Girl Scouts of the USA Commemorative Silver Dollar

As we look to celebrate America’s Independence Day, share your love of history with a keepsake of one of American’s great organizations—the Girl Scouts of the USA Commemorative Silver Dollar.  For the first time ever, the Girl Scouts has a commemorative coin, one of only two commemorative coin programs from the United States Mint this year, and the first dedicated to a girls’ organization.  It’s a fresh gift idea that both inspires and pays tribute to a piece of history—over 100 years of the premier girls’ leadership organization. President Obama himself 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.

The Girls Scouts of the USA Centennial Silver Dollar will be available at $55.95 for uncirculated and $59.95 for proof quality. Orders placed prior to 5 p.m. March 29 will receive a special introductory pricing of $50.95 for uncirculated and $54.95 for proof quality.  $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.
