As Paul Gilkes reported this week in Coin World, the Mint has sold 899,800 of the Rhode Island dollars, all in 100-coin bags or 25-coin rolls. 

This is a real surprise to most dealers as all the coins sold to collectors, and not any of the dealers who would’ve purchased them in a DEALER BULK BAG (140,000) pieces.  The mint reported that all the coins sold out in just 4 days.
