Sales of the 2010 bullion silver American Eagle passed the 10-million mark this week. To put it in perspective, last year saw 28,766,500 sold – and it is only April.
The Boy Scout commemorative silver dollar has not yet sold out. That is good news if you still want to buy one. The rate of sales stayed almost identical to last week, so it is likely that a sellout might have occurred by the time you read this. The Mint sold 22,261 this week and has 37,347 to go before it hits the ceiling of 350,000. So far 211,333 proofs and 101,320 uncirculated Boy Scout dollars have been sold.
Collectors snapped up another 31,953 two-roll sets of the 2010 Union Shield cent. That brings the running tally to 77,436. This should easily surpass the 100,000 mark, but where between that point and 300,000 will it run out of gas as the final two issues of last year have done? But, sales of those last two 2009 cent roll sets still creep forward.
