A limited-edition 2013 Girl Scouts of the USA Young Collectors set
is scheduled to be offered by the U.S. Mint beginning at noon Eastern
Time July 19.
Limited to a maximum release of 50,000 sets, the set includes an
Uncirculated 2013-W Girl Scouts of the USA Centennial silver dollar
along with colorful graphics paired with historic images.
The supplementary information chronicles the history of the
organization, which has evolved to meet the changing needs of girls
and the nation over the past 100 years, according to the Mint.
Each set is being offered at $54.95, a dollar less than the price
the Mint is currently charging for the Uncirculated coin alone. The
Mint is imposing no household ordering limits for the set.
The U.S. Mint is currently offering the Proof silver dollar
individually at $59.95 and the single Uncirculated silver dollar for $55.95.
The Girl Scouts USA Centennial Commemorative Coin Act, Public Law
111-86 authorized 350,000 Girl Scouts of the USA Centennial silver
dollars combined in Proof and Uncirculated versions. The maximum
50,000 coins for the sets will be taken from that overall total.

the Girl Scouts of the USA Centennial silver dollars — 78,696 as
single Proof coins and 29,156 as single Uncirculated coins.
