And this way the Mint is picking up the CC fee, not whoever gets the coins.

I find the coins good for the farmer's market near here. The season is here!

Try shipping to friends and family or a PO box.

Yea, just for kicks. I'm actually partially going along with what the government intended - dropping a few grand into the local economy.

Unhappy Pre Signing for UPS next day air ?

My regular UPS driver has agreed to leave my coins on my front porch, if I leave a signed note. He says, " it's okay with me , but I can't speak for other drivers."

I've asked 4 drivers , and they all say, " it's okay with me but I can't speak for other drivers."

My Eighty three year old Mother had some coins coming this morning.( Go Mom. I do the lifting.) We left a signed note on her door. Driver left a note back saying, " I must see you, in order to leave this delivery."

She either does not hear the door bell , or risks falling trying to rush to the door before the speedy guy in the brown shorts leaves.

Is there a policy to address this issue? Other wise no more coins for Mom.

Shipping Delays?

I'm headed back from Mexico and about to join you all in the coin shuffle again. How long is it taking from order to ship these days? Would appreciate any recent info. Thanks!

I guess i was exagerating a bit. 2-4 weeks is excessive.

I placed the following orders:

5/15 - $500 Jefferson, $500 Adams
5/17 - $500 Washington
5/20 - $500 Jackson

All shipped today (I should have looked before my previous post)

shipping more than coins?

Totally OT, but has anyone ever had a roach spotting after getting a shipment? A few weeks ago I found (and captured) a big fat sucker and remember wondering to myself if it could have come from the coin box I still had sitting on the floor with all it's glorious brown wadded paper spewing out.

Fast forward to last night, yet another big fat one. And guess what? I had just received another box. Coincidence? Most likely. But still...

Anyway, crunchy roach data point.

This has me rethinking all my Mint-related hijinks.

I am just eating lunch and I almost throw up....

Seriously, I haven't seen any. I open the boxes in various locations - home, garage, trunk, etc., and I have not seen their family members, yet.

Once they start getting their orders canceled being over the limit (which they will, like most of us here), they would stop. So I won't worry too much about it.
