In a mini surprise given their recent pace combined with a sellout announcement, 2010 Boy Scouts of America Centennial Silver Dollars took somewhat of a breather as they advanced in weekly sales by only 8,007.
Although demand has been declining ever since their March 23 release, their weekly gains through most of April managed to hover close to the 20,000 range.
It would appear last week’s Scouts uncirculated coin sellout did not pull many fence-sitters into the buying camp.
The latest United States Mint sales report shows that, as of Sunday, the silver dollars have reached 338,609. That is 96.7 of the maximum authorized 350,000 mintage.
The 11,391 remaining are for the proof option only, since the uncirculated BSA coin is no longer available.
On a weekly basis, the uncirculated $1 advanced another 1,379 to reach 108,671. The proof added 6,628 to hit 229,938.
The following table shows the combined proof and uncirculated weekly sales totals since the commemorative dollars were released:
Boy Scouts Coins Weekly Sales Totals
|March 28||April 4||April 11||April 18||April 25||May 2|
The May 2 reported numbers stand out starkly, and nudges the thinking of when the proof coin will sell out from potential days back to possible weeks.
The remaining Scouts dollar is priced at $43.95. It may be ordered directly from the Mint’s Web site (www.usmint.gov) or through its toll-free number 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468).
