Uncirculated Boy Scout commemorative silver dollars were sold out as the current issue of Numismatic News went to press.
The Mint was still selling proof examples and had 19,398 coins left.
Buyers did have the option of placing an order on a waiting list for the uncirculated coins. If other orders don’t work out for some reason, they might be able to buy one.
As of April 25, the U.S. Mint had sold 330,602 Boy Scout dollars. The ceiling is 350,000 coins under the terms of the authorizing law.
