Tired of giving meaningless shiny baubles that just get
tossed? 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, issued this year by
the United States Mint, and the first dedicated to a girls’ organization. The
commemorative coin is a great gift idea for the 2013 holiday season as it is
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.
The Girls Scouts of the USA Centennial Silver Dollar is available
now while supplies last. Place your order by calling 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468)

Support the future of Girl Scouts while also

surcharge (already included) from your purchase for national program development and delivery.
