2010 Boy Scouts Centennial Commemorative CoinThere are less than 20,000 of the 2010 Boy Scouts of America Centennial Silver Dollars left, the United States Mint revealed in its latest sales report Tuesday morning.

Since their debut on March 23, 2010, and through to Sunday, April 25, 2010 — just over a month, the U.S. Mint has sold a total of 330,602 BSA coins. That represents 94.5 percent of the maximum 350,000 mintage.

Split across options, the proof tally is now 223,310 and the uncirculated 107,292. And since the uncirculated Scouts coins sold out (a waiting list is in effect), the remaining 19,398 will be available for proof orders only.

Weekly sales dropped 4,312 from the prior week, but still came in strong with 17,949 sold. Of those, collectors preferred the proof to the uncirculated by 11,977 to 5,972.

214,672 51,844 23,875 22,261 17,949

With the uncirculated coins depleted, demand for the proofs should increase as fence sitters realize they must order now or never. It could be a matter of only days before all the Scout silver dollars are sold out.

Orders may be placed directly from the Mint’s Web site (www.usmint.gov) or through its toll-free number 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468).

A surcharge of $10 on the sale of each coin is forwarded to the National Boy Scouts of America Foundation to continue its efforts in hard to reach areas.
