Final design selections for the commemorative 2013 Girl Scouts of the USA Centennial Silver Dollar were unveiled Saturday by officials of the organization.
Girl Scouts of the USA National President Connie L. Lindsey and Chief Executive Officer Anna Maria Chávez presented the chosen designs at the 100th Anniversary Experience Exhibition Preview and Dinner Under The Stars hosted by Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas.
Under the terms of the act, up to 350,000 silver dollar commemorative coins in proof and uncirculated qualities may be issued to celebrate the centennial of the establishment of the Girl Scouts of the United States of America. The coins will be released in early 2013.
Silver Dollar Designs
The newly unveiled obverse design depicts three girls, representing the different ages and diversity of the Girls Scouts of the USA along with the 100th anniversary Trefoil symbol. Obverse inscriptions will include elements of the organization’s mission statement of COURAGE, CONFIDENCE and CHARACTER.
United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program (AIP) Master Designer Barbara Fox designed the obverse which will be sculpted by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Phebe Hemphill. Additional obverse inscriptions include 2013, LIBERTY and IN GOD WE TRUST.
Shown on the reverse of the coin will be the iconic Trefoil/profiles symbol of the Girl Scouts of the USA, as designed by AIP Associate Designer Chris Costello. Executing the reverse design will be United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Joseph Menna. Reverse inscriptions will include UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, E PLURIBUS UNUM, $1 and GIRL SCOUTS.
These coins will be struck to the standard specifications for modern commemorative silver dollars from the United States Mint. This includes a composition of 90% silver and a diameter of 1.5 inches.
