YOUNG COLLECTORS GIRL SCOUT CENTENNIAL COIN SET
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 side) design 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 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 side) 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.
At the United States Mint, they use the term uncirculated when referring to the special coining process used to make the coin, which gives it a brilliant finish. Uncirculated coins are manufactured using the same process as circulating coins, but with quality enhancements such as slightly higher coining force, early strikes from dies, special cleaning after stamping, and special packaging. Uncirculated coins may vary to some degree because of blemishes, toning, or slight imperfections.
