US Mint silver coin salesThe latest round of United States Mint weekly sales figures are in and they show collectors focused on the newly released 2010 Boy Scouts of America Centennial Silver Dollars. The coins are sprinting out Mint doors, as are bullion American Silver Eagles.

The Boy Scouts coins were launched on Tuesday, March 23. By Saturday morning, March 27, an impressive 200,000 were sold. By Sunday, the total reached 214,673. With a 350,000 mintage limit, these coins look like they will sell out. Split across the two options, collectors have purchased 144,732 of the proof silver coins and 69,941 of the uncirculated silver coins.

The BSA commemoratives have already passed the Disabled American Veterans Silver Dollars, which were the first commemorative coins released this year (back on February 25, 2010). Their latest tally is 181,052. These dollars, along with all the other silver products from the Mint, enjoyed week-over-week gains. Proofs advanced 10,007 versus 9,098 and the uncirculated option improved 4,677 compared to 3,334.

Last week’s report showed that American Silver Eagle bullion coins had not moved since March 15, 2010. They were stuck at 1.9 million for the month. What a difference a few days make. As of Monday, March 29, the Mint indicates a whopping 3,321,500 have been sold, making March one of the best months ever for the series which debuted back in 1986. Year-to-date sales are now at 8,964,000.
