The Secretary of the Treasury is authorized to mint and issue up to 350,000 silver dollar coins in commemoration of the centennial anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America. As authorized, the United States Mint will produce silver dollar coins in proof and uncirculated qualities.
The obverse design depicts a Cub Scout in the foreground with a Boy Scout and female Venturer in the background saluting. This design represents the Boy Scouts of America of today, as the organization has recognized the need to include other programs for younger boys (cub scouts) and older boys and girls (venturers), reflecting the great diversity of our nation. It is a dramatic representation of how the Boy Scouts of America has evolved over the past century to form a strong foundation of leadership, service, and community for all the youth of America. The reverse design features the Boy Scouts of America’s universal emblem.
