Jaime Hernandez: The 2010 Boy Scouts Commemorative Proof Silver Dollar coins were produced to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the Boy Scouts Program.
History: As of 2010, the Boy Scouts of America Program is the largest youth organization in the U.S. It has close to 3 million young members and over 1 million adult members. Since February 8, 1910, the Boy Scouts of America has had more than 111 million participants in the program.
Overview: On March 23, 2010, the U.S. Mint issued the 2010 Silver Dollar Boy Scout Commemorative coins. Many collectors were predicting a sellout before the coins were even issued by the U.S. Mint. Consequently, the Mint imposed a 100-coin maximum ordering limit per household. The Proof coins finally sold out on June 18, 2010.
The Mint produced both Proof and Uncirculated versions of the 2010 Boy Scouts Commemorative coins. Between both product options, the maximum authorized mintage was set at 350,000. Both Uncirculated and Proof coins were produced at the Philadelphia Mint.
Mint Issue Price: On March 23, 2010 the introductory price was set at $39.95 for each Proof. After April 20, 2010, the regular issue price was set at $43.95 each.
Public Law: Produced under Public Law 110-363.
