Unciruclated version of BSA Centennial Silver Dollar sells out

BSACoin-uncirculatedUpdate (4/27, 10:54 a.m.): According to just-released sales figures from the Mint, only 19,398  coins remain (all proof). That's about 5.5 percent of the original 350,000-coin mintage.

We warned you that the BSA Centennial coin could soon sell out, and that prediction has partially come true.

The uncirculated version of the coin (pictured) is no longer available from the U.S. Mint, meaning only the more-expensive proof version remains.

You can still order the proof version, but that stock is going fast. If you're still hoping to get your hands on the uncirculated coin, you have two options.

First, you can add your name to the U.S. Mint's waiting list. If an order is canceled, the U.S. Mint will offer the unclaimed coins to people on the waiting list on a first-come, first-served basis.

If you'd rather not wait, call your local coin shop. Many are already selling the coins, but you should expect to pay up to a $10 premium over what the Mint is charging.

Good luck!

  1. I have been collecting silver coins for a long time and wanted to get some of these but missed the mint offering. I guess I will have to go to ebay and pay way to much.

    Thanks for the article
