UNITED STATES OF AMERICA BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA BE PREPARED P E PLURIBUS UNUM ONE DOLLAR. The universal logo of the Boy Scouts of America. The 2010 Boy Scouts Centennial Silver Dollar was issued to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Boy Scouts of America.A commemorative coin program was also subsequently authorized for the Girl Scouts of the United States of America, with the coins issued in 2013. The design of this coin was criticized by some collectors for its inclusion of a female.
This design was specifically advocated by the organization in order to reflect the diversity of the nation and how the Boy Scouts had evolved over time to include all of the youth of America. Alternative designs had highlighted the continuity of the organization with images of a 1910 scout and a modern day scout. Ultimately, a design was chosen in accordance with the preference of the organization. The Boy Scouts of America Centennial Silver Dollar was issued in proof and uncirculated versions struck at the Philadelphia Mint. The maximum mintage was established at 350,000 coins across both options.
Introductory pricing was in place from the start of sales on March 23, 2010 until April 21, 2010, after which time regular pricing went into effect. The funds collected were used by local councils for the extension of funding to hard to serve areas. The Boy Scouts of America (BSA, colloquially the Boy Scouts) is the largest scouting organization and one of the largest youth organizations in the United States, with about 2.3 million youth participants and about one million adult volunteers. The BSA was founded in 1910, and since then, about 110 million Americans participated in BSA programs at some time in their lives.
BSA is part of the international Scout Movement and became a founding member organization of the World Organization of the Scout Movement in 1922. The stated mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law. Youth are trained in responsible citizenship, character development, and self-reliance through participation in a wide range of outdoor activities, educational programs, and, at older age levels, career-oriented programs in partnership with community organizations.
For younger members, the Scout method is part of the program to instill typical Scouting values such as trustworthiness, good citizenship, and outdoors skills, through a variety of activities such as camping, aquatics, and hiking. To further these outdoor activities, the BSA has four high-adventure bases: Northern Tier (Minnesota, Manitoba, and Ontario), Philmont Scout Ranch (New Mexico), Sea Base (Florida, US Virgin Islands, and Bahamas), and Summit Bechtel Reserve (West Virginia), as well as nearly one hundred separate camps and reservations specifically dedicated to scouts.
The traditional Scouting divisions are Cub Scouting for ages 5 to 11 years, Scouts BSA for ages 10 to 18, Venturing for ages 14 through 21, and Sea Scouts for ages 14 through 21. The BSA operates traditional Scouting by chartering local organizations, such as churches, clubs, civic associations, or educational organization, to implement the Scouting program for youth within their communities. Units are led entirely by volunteers appointed by the chartering organization, who are supported by local councils using both paid professional Scouters and volunteers. Additionally, Learning for Life is a non-traditional affiliate that provides in-school and career education.
On February 1, 2019, the Boy Scouts of America renamed its flagship program, Boy Scouts, to Scouts BSA to reflect its policy change allowing girls to join separate, gender-specific troops. On February 18, 2020, the National BSA filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection and is currently restructuring its financial situation.

The war ended in 1783 with the United States becoming the first country to gain independence from a European power. The current constitution was adopted in 1788, with the first ten amendments, collectively named the Bill of Rights, being ratified in 1791 to guarantee many fundamental civil liberties. The United States embarked on a vigorous expansion across North America throughout the 19th century, acquiring new territories, displacing Native American tribes, and gradually admitting new states until it spanned the continent by 1848.During the second half of the 19th century, the Civil War led to the abolition of slavery.
