In a promising signal that the 2010 Boy Scouts of America Centennial Silver Dollars are headed for a sell out sooner versus later, new weekly U.S. Mint sales figures show the commemoratives almost equaling their prior performance with another 22,261 sold.
Since their release on March 23, 2010, 312,653, or 89.3 percent, of the maximum 350,000 have been snapped up as of Sunday, April 18.
Until the latest round of numbers were released, progressive weekly sales had been halving. With that trend broken, the coins could sell out in less than two weeks if the current pace is maintained instead of many months ahead as it was beginning to appear.
