The Girl Scouts USA Centennial Commemorative Coin Act, signed into law in 2009, authorized the minting of up to 350,000 silver dollar coins in commemoration of the yearlong celebration of our 100th anniversary. On Saturday, Girl Scouts of the USA unveiled the design of the coin at the Gala 100th Anniversary Experience Exhibition Preview & Dinner Under the Stars, hosted by Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas, with Connie L. Lindsey, our National President, and Anna Maria Chávez, our CEO.
The coin will be available for sale starting in early 2013. (We don’t have an exact price yet, but we’ll keep you updated.) A surcharge on the sale of each coin is authorized to be paid to Girl Scouts of the USA for national program development and delivery, which helps girls grow into their best selves. And the coolest part? This is the first time the United States Mint has produced a commemorative coin dedicated to a girls’ organization!
