The “sold out” still isn’t up for the 2010 Boy Scouts commemorative coin.
There are still 1,800 coins to be sold before the maximum mintage of 350,000 is reached. As of June 13 243,800 proof silver dollar coins were recorded sold, along with 105,000 uncirculated silver dollars.
Because the U.S. Mint anticipates some orders will be canceled or returned, expect the coins to remain on sale for a short time after the sellout.
All Mint products that included 2009-dated Lincoln cents went off sale June 15, and June 30 was set as the last day of sales for 2009 District of Columbia and U.S. Territories Official First Day Coin Covers.
And although the Boy Scouts commemorative is close to being sold out, there still are plenty of the Disabled American Veterans $1 coins left. Sales to date are 207,502, almost 150,000 short of the 350,000 maximum mintage allowed.
The 2010 American the Beautiful Silver Proof Set sales rose to 105,176, up from 91,374 the week before.
The first 10 days of sales for Jane Pierce First Spouse gold coins total. While mintages for previous First Spouse coins were set at 40,000, the Pierce coin mintage was set at 15,000, as was mintages for all First Spouse coins planned for 2010 featuring Abigail Fillmore, James Buchanan’s Liberty and Mary Todd Lincoln.
