In March, the United States Mint made available for sale the Boy Scouts of America Centennial Silver Dollar. Proceeds from the coin surcharge—up to $3.5 million—will benefit the Boy Scouts of America Foundation to help extend Scouting in hard-to-serve communities. Coins can be ordered through the U.S. Mint at www.usmint.gov or at 1-800-USA-MINT (1-800-872-6468).
