Also I wondered if the thing is on backorder for 2 weeks and the shipping is said to take 1 to 2 weeks then when do they charge the credit card? Answer is: at the time of shipping.

Great find.
Thank you. I'm in the midst of placing an order and was surprised to see a $4.95 charge for Standard Shipping.

Where does one obtain one hundred $2 bills?

Also, the program will end at the first living President, currently Jimmy Carter. So, if Carter is alive after the Gerald Ford Dollar is issued in 2016, the program ends and there will be no Ronald Reagan coin.

James Earl Carter was born 1 October 1924.

George Herbert Walker Bush was born 12 June 1924.

In 2016 they would both turn 92. Of all ex-presidents, only Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan exceeded that, living to 93.

I think it's Bill Clinton who needs to watch his diet and exercise.

That is the general law, and does not explicitly mention the presidential dollars program, which would likely be covered in regulations published in the C.F.R.
