A new product from the United States Mint is an uncirculated 2013 Girl Scouts of the USA Silver Dollar that is held within a colorful folder designed for young collectors.
The Girl Scouts coin is not new, having been introduced earlier in the year along with a companion proof silver dollar for collectors. The two commemorative coins were produced and are issued as a part of the centennial celebration of the Girl Scouts USA which was founded by Juliette Gordon Low on March 12, 1912.
Its the special packaging that holds the uncirculated Girl Scouts coin that is unique and new. This coin collecting product from the US Mint, officially named the Girl Scouts of the USA Young Collectors Set, has the uncirculated silver dollar held within a tri-fold presentation folder. The folder has characters in various scenes that guide the young reader through the 100-year history of organization.
One nice aspect about the Young Collectors Set is its price. At $54.95, it is $1 less than the price of the uncirculated Girl Scouts coin by itself. The uncirculated silver dollar by itself is $55.95. (The previously mentioned proof silver dollar is only available by itself, sold by the US Mint today for $59.95.)
To place an order for the Girl Scouts of the USA Young Collectors Set, visit the United States Mint website at www.usmint.gov and click the "Shop" link. There are no household ordering limits for this coin collecting product, although not more than 50,000 of them will be sold.
Every set and every Girl Scouts coin from the US Mint has a price that already includes a $10 surcharge. The surcharge was mandated by law (Public Law 111-86). Collected amounts will be paid to the Girl Scouts of the USA for the "development and delivery" of Girl Scout programs.
