2013 Girl Scouts of the USA Centennial Silver Dollar now available

Source
The Girl Scouts of the USA Centennial Commemorative Coin Act, signed into law in 2009, authorized the minting of up to 350,000 silver dollar coins in commemoration of the yearlong celebration of our 100th anniversary. On September 22, 2012, Girl Scouts of the USA unveiled the design of the coin at the Gala 100th Anniversary Experience Exhibition Preview and Dinner Under the Stars, hosted by Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas, with Connie L. Lindsey, our National President, and Anna Maria Chávez, our CEO.

The coin will be available for sale starting today, February 28, 2013. A surcharge from the sale of each coin is authorized to be paid to Girl Scouts of the USA's national program development and delivery, which helps girls grow into their best selves. And the coolest part? This is the first time the United States Mint has produced a commemorative coin dedicated to a girls' organization!
