General Coin Information

The United States Mint released the 2010 Boy Scouts of America Centennial Commemorative Proof Coin on March 23, 2010 to celebrate 100 years of the Scouting organization.

Each coin was struck from a 90% silver 10% copper alloy to a width of 1.5 inches and will bear the face value of one dollar. Only 350,000 of the coins could be struck across all product options.

A surcharge was to be added to the sale of each coin with the money raised being forwarded to the National Boy Scouts of America Foundation. The Foundation, in turn, will grant the money to local councils to improve the organization's presence in hard-to-reach areas.

An uncirculated version of this coin is also being released on the same day.

Also shown are the inscriptions "CONTINUING THE JOURNEY," "IN GOD WE TRUST," "LIBERTY" and "1910 2010." It was designed by Artistic Infusion Program Master Designer Donna Weaver and engraved by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Charles Vickers.

The reverse was engraved by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Jim Licaretz and shows the Boy Scouts of America's universal emblem along with the inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM," "BE PREPARED" and "ONE DOLLAR."
