The United States Mint has been selling the Boy Scouts dollar coin to a very receptive audience.
While coin collectors make up the core of any commemorative coin fan base, many non-collectors purchase commemorative coins as gifts.
The United States government has allowed the U.S. Mint to make:
- A total of 350,000 Boy Scout commemorative silver dollars
- Most are proofs
- 107,000 of the coins were made in uncirculated
The U.S. Mint still has proof versions of the Boy Scouts commemorative dollar for sale.
I’m a roller coaster junkie, a weather enthusiast, a frequent traveler, and a numismatist. My love for coins began when I was 11 years old. I primarily collect and study U.S. coins produced during the 20th century. I’m a member of the American Numismatic Association (ANA) and the Numismatic Literary Guild (NLG). I’ve also been studying meteorology and watching weather patterns for years. I enjoy sharing little-known facts and fun stuff about coins, weather, travel, health, food, and living green… on a budget.
