A Coin for Courage, Confidence, and Character

Oct 17, 2012

On a special silver coin, the heads side is inscribed with the words “Courage, Confidence, Character,” and shows images of three different Girl Scouts. The tails side sports the Girl Scout trefoil logo and a $1 mark. What exactly is this? It’s the 2013 Girl Scouts USA Centennial Silver Dollar coin, created especially to honor the next 100 years of Girl Scouting.

The United States Mint, which issues just two commemorative coins a year, plans to produce about 350,000 coins, available for sale in early 2013. Because these coins are collectible, they will cost more than their face value of $1. In fact, the U.S. Mint determines the price, and depending on the price of silver, some can sell for about $42 a coin.

The best part about the Girl Scouts anniversary coin? It’s the first time the U.S. Mint has produced a commemorative coin dedicated to a girls’ organization.
