I placed an order on 3/30 (NA) & then another on 4/1 (Prez) -- both in process. I don't see why you can't place another order -- as long as you have credit available on the card -- go for it!

can you use the same credit card? i'm reading that people are maxing out on different credit cards.

my credit card does not have a pending charge on it. took a week.

I used different cards myself, so I wouldn't know. But logically, I don't see why not. Officially they say that the limit is per address, but they haven't enforced it thoroughly. My orders were all under the same name and address, although different CCs. One would assume that if they wanted to enforce their rule, they would look at the address first.

Wow! Just received a note that one of my orders shipped today. That's right - shipping on Sunday. One month to the day since I placed the order. The mint must be working overtime to fill orders.

The e-mail gave me tracking information but USPS and UPS don't show any tracking for the number. Maybe tomorrow.

I also received notification that my order shipped today. I placed this order on 3/23. Nice to know that the mint is working hard to fill orders.

I don't see any particular pattern or sequence in which orders are being processed. From the last 5 posters we have: 3/5, 2/15, 3/1-5, 3/23, 3/16.
Can anyone deduce a formula from that? Would be nice to calculate when my 3/20 orders will be shipped based on that formula.

Mine order was for 10 boxes of NAs. But the other order, made on the same day, for various presidents has not shipped - but at least they now say it is in process instead of "waiting for credit and address verification".

Trouble checking status on-line @ the Mint?

I was trying to check the status on my order, but every time I click 'track order' after signing in, it goes to a blank page (some sort of error).

Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

Got notification... US Mint shipped 2 boxes of Native American coins to myself... ordered on 3/17 (several more boxes) but it put the others on a waitlist of sorts...

Will see how long it takes to get to ANC...

If you want to track your order, you need to create an account with the US Mint. According to the homepage, "Track Order" feature now available to registered users.

just got confirmation that my order placed on 3/23 has shipped...before the order placed at the beginning of the month. i love how the us mint has such terrible timing. it's suppose to arrive tomorrow just as my entire household heads out of town. i hope it will arrive before we all leave or else im gonna have to leave a note to tell them to leave it with my neighbor who will be picking up the mail while we're away.
