Last time this happened, my credit union called meals on wheels: asked if I was dead.

No

You get charged when the coins ship (give or take a day)

Let us know if these orders go through eventually. I thought the consensus here was that you can only use the same card once every 10 days.

How many days is the shipment? I would assume you need to sign for it so if I am going on vacation this week, I should wait till I get back home in early June. Is this correct? Or should I order now and wait in line like everyone else?

I would wait till after vacation. They might not have coins to ship until June anyway. That way you can enjoy your vacation and not worry about whether your coins are shipped and signed for by the kid next door.

Thanks. I rather not worry while on vacation but just wondering if I wait, won't the queue be much longer especially since there is a backlog?

Perhaps. Or perhaps when you get back a new coin will show up in stock that is not currently listed. No way to predict what will happen next at the Mint.

Its official - Time Geithner says we hit the debt ceiling Monday and have run out of money. The mint is empty folks! We were just the first to find out that our big piggy bank has gone under!

I'm in the same boat. Going to be gone all of June so will have to cancel my current order if they don't come in by late next week.

FINALLY!

Placed a few orders on 5/9. Two were for the NA coins and one is finally showing the order shipped today but not tracking info. Other NA order I placed is still showing in Process. Placed an order on George washington that same day as welel and just got an email saying it was backordered and was expected to ship on 5/31.

I had an order for Sacajawea (sp?) placed on May 1 with an expected ship date of 5/12. It was bumped back several times and this morning I had an email stating those coins were officially out of stock and my order had been cancelled. Just FYI.

Because even though there's a lot of the same stuff being repeated over and over, I find it useful to have a place for discussion. Isn't that what forums are for?
No, it has nothing to do with secrets. Only one was closed, and it was because of personal attacks that would not stop. As long as threads are devoid of personal attacks, they will happily continue.
