According to the legislation, the US Mint is authorized to issue the coins between February 8, 2010, and before January 1, 2011. They will probably be available long after that on the resale market, at higher markups.

Scouters will recognize Feb 8, 2010 as the actual date of the 100th anniversary of BSA.

The text of the legislation is available here:
