This 2013 Girl Scouts of the USA Young Collectors Set explores the history of the Girl Scouts organization, beginning with their founding by Juliette Gordon Low in 1912.
The set contains a 2013 Girl Scouts of the USA Centennial Uncirculated Silver Dollar, along with colorful graphics paired with historic images. You will also find the “Mint Kids” characters who are back to guide you through this organization’s remarkable history that has evolved to meet the changing needs of girls and the Nation over the past 100 years.
The obverse (heads) design of the coin was inspired by both the historical and contemporary aspects of Girl Scouting and by its mission statement: "Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place." It depicts three girls who represent the different ages and diversity of the Girl Scouts of the USA. Inscriptions include COURAGE, CONFIDENCE and CHARACTER, key elements of the Girl Scouts mission statement. The 100th anniversary Trefoil symbol signifies the centennial anniversary. Additional inscriptions are 2013, LIBERTY and IN GOD WE TRUST.
The reverse (tails) design depicts the iconic Profiles of Girl Scouts of the USA with the inscriptions UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, E PLURIBUS UNUM, $1 and GIRL SCOUTS.
The Girl Scouts organization was established on March 12, 1912, by Juliette Gordon Low in Savannah, Georgia. It was chartered by the U.S. Congress in 1950.
