# 879 - Modern American Silver Dollar Commemoratives - Part 66

in silvergoldstackers •  14 days ago 

Due to the coronavirus, I am stuck at home and I cannot access part of my stack, where I have coins I have not posted about before.

So we will continue a series that I published almost two years ago, "The Modern American Silver Commemorative Dollars".

This will be a little different series, because the photos are new (I hope better than the old ones) and the text will be different (of course the basics are the same).

The info below comes mostly from: https://moderncommemoratives.com/

"The United States Modern Commemorative Coin program began in 1982. That year, the US Mint released commemorative half dollar coins to celebrate the 250th anniversary of the birth of George Washington. Since that date, commemorative coins have been issued nearly every year to celebrate famous American people, places, events, and institutions.

Each commemorative coin program is authorized under an Act of Congress. The Act typically specifies the subject to be commemorated, the denomination of coins to be issued, and the maximum authorized mintage for each. Additionally, most commemorative coin programs include surcharges added to the cost of each coin, which will be distributed to specified beneficiary organizations or fund projects that benefit the community."

All coins weight 26.73g with 90% silver purity. They were issued in Proof and Brilliant Uncirculated finish.

They will be presented in the order they were minted, but only one of each design. I will alternate the Proofs with the Brilliant Uncirculated.

The sixty-sixth is the PR70 DCAM 2013-W "Girl Scouts".

"The United States Mint issued the 2013 Girl Scouts Centennial Silver Dollar to mark the 100th anniversary of the Girl Scouts of the United States of America. This issue followed the previous release of a silver dollar to mark the centennial anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America in 2010."

PCGS graded 1,903 2013-W "Girl Scouts", with 541 as PR70 DCAM. 86,355 2013-W "Girl Scouts" were minted in West Point.

I bought this coin in 2013 for $93.00 and today's price is around $110.00. The issue price was $59.95.

The obverse design of the silver dollar features three girls of different ages to represent the diversity of the organization. Inscriptions above include “Courage”, “Confidence”, and “Character”, which are elements of the Girl Scouts mission statement.

The obverse was designed by Barbara Fox and engraved by Phebe Hemphill.

The reverse design of the coin features the classic Girl Scouts trefoil/profiles symbol. The Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee had been particularly impressed with this design, citing it as emblematic of a new American style for coinage design which showed off the Mint’s technical abilities.

The reverse was designed by Chris Costello and engraved by Joseph Menna.

This brings back memories of my being a 'Brownie' which is the first stage of the Girl Scouts. The reverse reminds me of the boxes of Girl Scout cookies they sell every year. We used to buy them, but @silvertop can consume an entire box VERY quickly, lol! Take care and thanks for sharing @ronaldoavelino!

Interesting Reverse with the frosting, and what looks like a triple reflecting image @ronaldoavelino!!
