The uncirculated 2010 Boy Scouts of America Centennial Silver Dollar sold out on Monday, with anyone placing new orders asked to join a waiting list in the hopes of an older order getting canceled and theirs then stamped with an approval.
That option has past. The United States Mint on Thursday afternoon removed the uncirculated dollar from its online store, moving it officially to its "No Longer Available" listings.
Collectors will likely have to wait until early next week to learn how many were sold. The U.S. Mint runs the weekly numbers and then sends out updated sales data on Tuesdays or Wednesdays.
The latest sales figures with an effective date of Sunday, April 25, show 107,292 uncirculated coins were purchased. It is likely that the final number will shift several thousand in either directions — up or down.
The Mint is still offering the Boy Scouts proof silver dollars without any restrictions. If typical policy is followed — assuming they will eventually sellout, those too will go to a waiting list before they are pulled completely from Mint store shelves.
The latest sales figures have the proofs enjoying a more than 2 to 1 advantage over the uncirculated coins, with 223,310 sold.
Combined, the commemorative coins are at 94.5% of their maximum authorized 350,000 mintage, leaving 19,398 remaining. But again, that was as of Sunday. There may be just a few thousand left as of this writing.
The proof coins may be ordered from the Mint’s Web site (www.usmint.gov), or through its toll-free number 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468).
Anyone interested in purchasing the Boy Scouts Uncirculated Silver Dollars must now look to coin dealers and the secondary market. CoinNews will publish recent eBay auction results of the coins on Monday.
