Where to Buy
Boys Town Commemorative Coins will be available for purchase after the ceremony, and they will also be online the same day starting at noon ET from catalog.usmint.gov.
Product options include proof and uncirculated versions of each coin as well as a three-coin proof set. (Read about options and see coin images.)
Their introductory prices will range from $20.95 to the mid to upper $400s. Prices for the more expensive products will depend on the trending value of gold. Surcharges collected from these coins are authorized to be paid to Boys Town to carry out its mission of caring for and assisting children and families in underserved communities across America.
Founded by Father Edward Flanagan in 1917, Boys Town is one of the largest non-profit organizations in the country, dedicated to serving at-risk children and families of all backgrounds and religions.
