At a meeting held on May 17, 2012, the Commission of Fine Arts (CFA) reviewed design candidates provided by the United States Mint for the 2013 Girl Scouts of the USA Silver Dollar commemorative coin. Their recommended designs for the obverse and reverse match those provided by the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee late last month.
Under Public Law 111-86, up to 350,000 silver dollars may be issued to celebrate the centennial of the Girl Scouts of the United States of America. The coins will be issued in proof and uncirculated qualities during the calendar year beginning on January 1, 2013. Added to the sales price of each coin will be a surcharge of $10, which is distributable to the Girl Scouts of the USA for program development and delivery.
A total of 11 obverse design candidates and 10 reverse design candidates were provided by the US Mint. The CFA recommended obverse alternative #9, although they did suggest using the words “Courage Confidence Character” in place of “100 Years of Girl Scouting” and including the number “100” in the small trefoil emblem. For the reverse, they recommended alternative #6 with the suggestion that the words “Girl Scouts” should be used in place of “100 Years”.
The final designs for the 2013 Girl Scouts Silver Dollar will be selected by the Secretary of the Treasury, who will consider the input and recommendations of the Girl Scouts of the United States of America, Commission of Fine Arts, and Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee.
All of the obverse and reverse design candidates that were provided by the US Mint appear below.
