Boy Scout CoinPosted by in Coins
Former and current boy and girl scouts will probably already know that the Boy Scouts of America recently celebrated its hundredth anniversary, making it America’s oldest youth organization. To celebrate, the Patriotic Mint is releasing a commemorative silver dollar collectible coin. It weighs 26.73 grams and is composed of 90% silver. This coin’s large size makes it ideal for display on a mantle or wall and a great addition to any collection.
The coin features 3 scouts, 2 boys and 1 girl, of various ages saluting on one side. They are wearing traditional scouting uniforms. On the reverse it features the American eagle imposed over the fleur de lis, the symbol of the Boy Scouts and youth scouting organization worldwide. This coin makes a great gift to any former or current scouts and is just a great piece of Americana.
The boy and girl scouts of America have remained largely unchanged in the public imagination since their inception. They are still synonymous with independence, leadership, and helping the community. They are still an intricate part of the fiber of America and this coin celebrates that. Is there anything more American than seeing a troupe of smiling scouts walking down the street? Order your collectible coin today because the 150th anniversary will be here before you know!
