The coin's obverse (heads side) was designed by United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program Master Designer Donna Weaver and sculpted by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Charles L. Vickers. The design depicts a Cub Scout in the foreground with a Boy Scout and a female Venturer in the background saluting. The Venturer represents how the Boy Scouts of America organization has evolved over the past century to serve all the youth of America, including girls. Inscriptions on the obverse are CONTINUING THE JOURNEY, 1910, 2010, IN GOD WE TRUST and LIBERTY.

The coin's reverse (tails side) was sculpted by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Jim Licaretz. The design features the universal emblem of the Boy Scouts of America. Inscriptions on the reverse are UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA, BE PREPARED, E PLURIBUS UNUM and ONE DOLLAR.

Surcharges from sales of the commemorative coin are authorized to be paid to the National Boy Scouts of America Foundation, which will make the funds available to local councils in the form of grants for the extension of Scouting in hard-to-serve areas.
