US Mint Unveils Designs

WASHINGTON, December 17, 2009 - The United States Mint today unveiled designs for the 2010 Boy Scouts of America Centennial Silver Dollar.  The Boy Scouts of America Centennial Commemorative Coin Act (Public Law 110-363) authorizes the United States Mint to mint and issue silver one-dollar coins to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America.

Secretary of the Treasury Timothy F. Geithner approved the coin's designs on September 16, 2009.  The obverse (heads side) design, by United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program Master Designer Donna Weaver, depicts a Cub Scout in the foreground with a Boy Scout and female Venturer in the background saluting.  The Venturer represents how the Boy Scouts of America organization has evolved over the past century to serve all the youth of America, including girls.  Inscriptions on the obverse are CONTINUING THE JOURNEY, 1910, 2010, IN GOD WE TRUST and LIBERTY.

The reverse (tails side) design, sculpted by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Jim Licaretz, features the universal emblem of the Boy Scouts of America.  Inscriptions on the reverse are UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA, BE PREPARED, E PLURIBUS UNUM and ONE DOLLAR.

The United States Mint will mint proof and uncirculated versions of the 2010 Boy Scouts of America Centennial Silver Dollar in 90 percent silver.  Mintage is limited to 350,000 coins across all product options.  Surcharges collected from sales of the coin are authorized to be paid to the National Boy Scouts of America Foundation, which will make funds available to local councils in the form of grants for the extension of scouting in hard-to-serve areas.
