GIRL SCOUTS CENTENNIAL SILVER DOLLAR - UNCIRCULATED VERSION - FREE SHIPPING ELIGIBLE ITEM
Join the Girl Scouts in celebrating their first hundred years! This uncirculated Girl Scouts of the USA Centennial Silver Dollar is struck on special presses using greater force than circulating coins, producing a sharp, intricately detailed image.
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) 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.
