Sales ticked slightly slower for 2010 Boy Scouts Commemorative Coins. Newly released United States Mint figures reveal 2,820 of the proof silver dollars are left.
The uncirculated $1s dropped 25, which was lowest decrease since the US Mint started adjusting for their returns, cancellations and standby orders. They sold out five weeks ago.
Proofs gained 2,244 versus the prior week’s 2,381. Separated, collectors have purchased 2.25 times more of them than the uncirculated for a near perfect 70/30 split — a breakout that is now apparent the Mint set for final mintage spreads based on earlier demand between the two options.
Combined, the Boy Scouts commemoratives have hit 347,180 for 99.2 percent of the possible 350,000 authorized. They were released ten weeks ago.
The remaining proof coin is listed for $43.95. Orders may be placed directly online at http://catalog.usmint.gov, or by phone at 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.
