Yesterday, I was notified by one of my political junkie sites, govtrack.us, that H.R. 6404, a bill to “require the Secretary of the Treasury to mint coins in commemoration of the centennial of the establishment of the Girl Scouts of the United States of America.”
As I write this, the information is so new that it has not been posted on Thomas, the Library of Congress site that shares legislative information with the public. So there is no further information. When the bill is posted, it will be available via this link.
If we look at other commemorative legislation, I speculate that the bill with be a $1 silver commemorative coin that will be available in proof and business strike issues. Since the Girl Scouts were founded in 1912, the coin will celebrate their centennial in 2012. Other than design specifics, the bill will call for the minting of 300,000 to 500,000 coins with a $10 surcharge that will be donated to the Girl Scouts.
We will check back to see how well I played swami!
