BSA US Silver Dollar -2010
The Boy Scouts of America Centennial Commemorative Coin Act (H.R. 5872) passed in both the House and the Senate, and has been officially signed into law by the president. The bill was first introduced by Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX) last April. Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) championed the bill in the United States Senate.

 

About the coins:

 

350,000 silver dollar coins will be produced by the U.S. Mint in 2010

Minting of the coins will occur between February 8, 2010 and January 1, 2011.

For each coin sold, there is a $10 surcharge that will directly benefit Scouts in hard-to-serve areas, adding up to $3.5 million in new revenue for the BSA Foundation! These funds will become available after the coin sales are completed, probably late in 2010. Grant request requirements and guidelines will be developed by the BSA Foundation and shared with local councils in advance of fund availability.

The picture of the coin is a concept drawing. The design is not finalized just yet.

The rules: Each silver dollar must show its designated value and have the inscriptions “2010,” “Liberty,” “In God We Trust,” “United States of America,” and “E Pluribus Unum.” The coin will weigh 26.73 grams, have a diameter of 1.5 inches, and contain 90% silver and 10% copper.

I’m not sure where Kevin got that the FDL coin image was a concept drawing. I have followed this bill from the start and never heard that. Its an image coinnews.net used for their stories on the bill and it seems to have spread without proper credit.

If this is the final design, they’ve missed an opportunity to create a memorable souvenir. Boring!
