On December 17 2009 United States Mint Unveiled Designs for 2010 Boy Scouts of America Centennial Silver Dollar Commemorative Coin.
I am sorry to be so late with this news. :oops:
WASHINGTON - The United States Mint today unveiled designs for the 2010 Boy Scouts of America Centennial Silver Dollar. The Boy Scouts of America Centennial Commemorative Coin Act (Public Law 110-363) authorizes the United States Mint to mint and issue silver one-dollar coins to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America.

Secretary of the Treasury Timothy F. Geithner approved the coin's designs on September 16, 2009. The obverse (heads side) design, by United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program Master Designer Donna Weaver, depicts a Cub Scout in the foreground with a Boy Scout and female Venturer in the background saluting. The Venturer represents how the Boy Scouts of America organization has evolved over the past century to serve all the youth of America, including girls. Inscriptions on the obverse are CONTINUING THE JOURNEY, 1910, 2010, IN GOD WE TRUST and LIBERTY.

The reverse (tails side) design, sculpted by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Jim Licaretz, features the universal emblem of the Boy Scouts of America. Inscriptions on the reverse are UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA, BE PREPARED, E PLURIBUS UNUM and ONE DOLLAR.

The United States Mint will mint proof and uncirculated versions of the 2010 Boy Scouts of America Centennial Silver Dollar in 90 percent silver. Mintage is limited to 350,000 coins across all product options. Surcharges collected from sales of the coin are authorized to be paid to the National Boy Scouts of America Foundation, which will make funds available to local councils in the form of grants for the extension of scouting in hard-to-serve areas.
Release date is March 23 2010.

CoinNews.net hat geschrieben: Boy Scouts Commemorative Dollars Searing, US Mint 4-Day Sales Top 200,000

2010 Boy Scouts of America Centennial Silver Dollar sales are on fire with an already 200,000 purchased, United States Mint Director Ed Moy revealed early Saturday morning during the American Numismatic Association’s National Money Show™ in Fort Worth, Texas.

"The coin program has already been a great success," said Director Moy. "It went on sale this past Tuesday, March 23rd, and as of this morning, out of 350,000 that were available to sell, 200,000 have been sold."

The sales figures have smashed those of the 2010 Disabled American Veteran commemorative that have been on sale for longer, and have topped last year’s opening sales week of the extremely popular 2009 Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial commemorative which eventually sold out.

As Mr. Moy indicated, the commemorative silver coins were made available for ordering on Tuesday, March 23. The Mint ceremoniously launched the dollars on Saturday, March 27, at the National Money Show.

The coins are available in both proof and uncirculated conditions. The introductory price for the proof is $39.95 while the uncirculated option is available for $33.95. Mr. Moy did not reveal how the sales were split between the two. The U.S. Mint generally releases more formalized coin sales figures each week by Tuesday.

While standard in their composition and weight for a commemorative, the Boy Scouts silver dollars are unique in the fact of their subject matter and the swarm of potential buyers. It is estimated that almost 2.8 million youth members alone belong to the Boy Scouts of America (BSA). Add in the million plus adult members and the numbers approach 4 million active participants.

The total allotted mintage for the commemoratives is 350,000. Many collectors expect they will sell out, and the inaugural sales figures are more supportive of the possibility.

The US Mint releases only two commemoratives each year. The first was the 2010 American Veterans Disabled for Life Silver Dollar. The proof and uncirculated coins went on sale February 25, 2010 and are still available. The Mint has reported a combined 166,368 have been sold between their launch and March 21, which — although much less than the Boy Scouts dollars, is a solid number for a silver commemorative. The first reported weekly Mint figures for the 2009 Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Silver Dollars came in at 177,722.
