The U.S. Mint announced last week that it has sold out of its production run of commemorative 2010 Boy Scouts of America Proof Silver Dollars. The limited access to precious metals in the current economy meant that a limited supply of these coins could be produced, and the U.S. Mint only produced 350,000 coins.
The coin was launched on March 23 to celebrate the centennial of the Boy Scouts of America and quickly became one of the hottest collectible coins on the market. More than 200,000 sales of the coin were recorded within the first week, making it one of the fastest-selling U.S. Mint coins in recent memory and outpacing the sales for popular coins like American Silver Eagles.
The U.S. Mint has established a "waiting list" for people who are still interested in purchasing a Boy Scouts of America Proof Silver Dollar. While the U.S. Mint cannot produce more coins, the waiting list will provide a chance for people to purchase coins as supplies become available because of returns or account cancellations.
