They could save some money by cutting back on that crap.

I believe those are rolls of 25 dollar coins and not for direct ship program.

Native American rolls

I might be wrong though.

This also is a great woodstove fire-starter. Roll two sheets together and store in the boxes.
dude! shhhhhhhhhh This is supposed to remain quiet! If that type of information gets around the mint will stop packing the coins with that stuff or charge us money for it!

We have to be stealth about this sort of thing and not leak info about the recycle paper inserts!

Wow!
The current DS volume is skewed higher by the Mint distributing excess wrud of a few older coins. Going forward the real annual excess over natural demand is 20-30 million. About 1/4th of the current DS program volume. The need for the DS program is far less than some here presume

Unfortunately you will not earn any points due to how it was coded by American Express. If you had read the thread, you would see that you will receive a call from Membership Rewards within the next 72-96 hours informing you that they will be rescinding any points bonuses, and possibly even closing your American Express card permanently.

Is AMEX still blacklisting people for all future products and promotions?

Obviously.

And all the amex reps and mint reps that follow this thread look you up via your "Reference Number: 4309938185020" and cancel your order, your credit card, take away points you might have already had, and then black list you from anymore accounts of American express and their brother/sister CC companies like Visa and Mastercard.
