Girl Scout Commemorative Coin

Coming in 2013     

Girl Scout Coin

Signed into law in 2009 by President Barack Obama, 350,000 silver dollar coins commemorating the celebration of Girl Scouts 100th anniversary will go on sale in 2013. On September 22, 2012, Girl Scouts of the USA unveiled the design.

The coin will be available for sale starting in early 2013. (We don’t have an exact price yet, but sign up for email updates.) A surcharge from the sale of each coin is authorized to be paid to Girl Scouts of the USA’s national program development and delivery, which helps girls grow into their best selves. This is the first time the United States Mint has produced a commemorative coin dedicated to a girls’ organization!
