The United States Mint has officially sold out of the uncirculated version of the Boy Scouts of America Centennial Silver Dollar. The coins were first offered for sale on March 23, 2010.
The Boy Scouts Silver Dollars were issued under a Congressionally authorized commemorative coin program which celebrates the 100th anniversary of the founding of the organization. The obverse of each 90% silver coin features a depiction of a Boy Scout, Cub Scout, and female Venturer saluting, which is intended to represent the Boy Scouts of America of today. The reverse of each coin features the organization’s universal emblem. Under the authorizing legislation, the maximum authorized mintage for the coins was set at 350,000, across both proof and uncirculated versions.
Before the uncirculated version of the coin was officially sold out, the United States Mint had continued to accept orders for placement on a waiting list. Customers were allowed to place orders which would be fulfilled on a first-come, first served basis with any coins that became available due to order cancellations. The US Mint accepted orders for the waiting list from April 23, 2010 until April 29, 2010.
On the evening of April 29, 2010, the US Mint changed the status of the offering to “sold out” and stopped accepting orders for the waiting list.
Although the uncirculated version of the coin is no longer available, the proof version still remains available. The 2010 Proof Boy Scouts Silver Dollar is currently priced at $43.95 and can be purchased online at http://www.usmint.gov/catalog/
The last available US Mint sales report indicated sales of 107,292 uncirculated coins and 223,310 proof coins through the reporting date of April 25, 2010.
