The Scouts was founded in the UK in 1907 by Lieutenant General Robert Baden-Powell with a camping event held ahead of the publication of his book, Scouting for Boys. This publication took the principles of military scouting and wilderness survival, as well as Baden-Powell’s own experiences, and formed them into a collection of youth training ideas that would influence the Boy Scouts Association, an organisation he founded in 1910 and the first of many associated groups. Today, Scouting and the related Girl Guiding movement report millions of young members worldwide from the smallest Squirrel Scouts for those aged between 4 and 6, to the Explorer Scouts for those aged 14 to 18. The organisation today aims to provide ‘fun, adventure and skills for life.’ For the 100th anniversary of the Scouts, The Royal Mint released a series of commemorative Fifty Pence pieces, including this gold proof edition. The reverse of this coin features the fleur-de-lis symbol of the Scouts with twin stars over the top of a globe, symbolising the worldwide reach of the movement. It’s a simple but effective design - the work of Kerry Jones - and accompanied by the Scouts motto: ‘Be Prepared’. Jones’ reverse design is paired with Ian Rank-Broadley’s portrait of Her Majesty the Queen that appears on the obverse. From a limited mintage of 1,250, this 50p is struck in 15.50 grams of 22 carat gold. It’s presented encapsulated in its original box from The Royal Mint with a numbered certificate of authenticity that also doubles as an information booklet.
