Approximately a month after the release of the silver dollar honoring disabled veterans, the U.S. Mint will issue the second commemorative of the year to mark the centennial of the founding of the Boy Scouts of America.
The coin is minted in the standard .900 fine silver dollar alloy and it is expected to go on sale March 23 in proof and uncirculated. Mintage will be a combined maximum of 350,000 pieces.
Prices were not available at press time, but recent commemoratives have been priced at $37.95 for the proof at the pre-issue discount and $33.95 for the uncirculated.
The obverse of the coin depicts three saluting Scouts and the reverse shows the emblem of the Boy Scouts of America.
