If this is true, whoever said the coins are charged as a purchase couldn't possibly know this as fact. All credit card terms and conditions that I have read indicate that obtaining cash or cash equivalents via credit card will cause the expense to be charged as an expensive cash advance.
The US Mint charges for ALL online orders as a purchase, whether you believe it or not.
