Boy Scouts of America Silver Dollar Centennial Commemorative Coin





By CoinNews.net on Apr 28th, 2008


A new House bill recently introduced to celebrate the centennial of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) with the minting of a commemorate silver dollar has exceptionally strong bipartisan support.


Rep Pete Sessions [R-TX] introduced the new bill on April 22, 2008. The bill looks to be soundly popular with an already 296 cosponsors lined up to provide their early signature for the "100 Years of Scouting" commemorative coin.


In addition to the commemorative coin initiative, Sessions is also building support for a U.S. postage stamp to celebrate 100 Years of Scouting. Currently, Sessions has garnered the support of over 320 Senators and Members of Congress for a letter to the U.S. Postmaster General, requesting a commemorative stamp for the 100th anniversary of Boy Scouts of America.


In 1960, the United States Postal Office celebrated the Boy Scouts of Americas 50th Anniversary with the introduction of the 4 cent commemorative stamp depicting a Scout holding up the Scout sign.

I'm our council's 100th Anniversary Chairman. They're only minting 350,000 and each will have a $10 surcharge that will go to the Boy Scouts of America Foundation.


I plan on buying a handfull.

SOLD OUT! Waiting list closed.


"The United States Mint finally placed the proof 2010 Boy Scouts of America Centennial Silver Dollar on official Sold Out status weeks (if not months) after many had anticipated the event would occur.


This closes the final chapter on what has been an interesting roller-coaster for the commemorative coins that celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Boy Scouts of America.


The proof coins launched on March 23, 2010, along with their uncirculated counterparts, to overwhelming demand.


In fact, ordering in the first few hours was so intense that the U.S. Mints online store and telephone systems experienced significant issues reminiscent of the troubles that occurred during last years Lincoln Coin and Chronicles Set release.


200,000 Boy Scout Silver Dollars were sold during the first four days of their release, accounting for well over half of the maximum 350,000 mintage allowed by law."
