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, 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 Girl Scouting's 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.
Girls Scouts of the USA's Centennial Silver Dollar is available now while supplies last. Place your order by calling 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468) or order online at www.usmint.gov.
