Limit per Household/Name/Address??

I just got one order delivered for my "aunt" who's mail is sent to my address. It was delivered UPS and just "dropped" outside of garage (I just love that)-- they didn't ring bell (I was home) or require a signature for a $500 delivery.

I just opened up a few more credit cards (churn) that I'd like to get the bonus on so it seems like a $500 coin purchase would be quite painless. I've never ordered the coins for me so I was wondering since it's a different last name if it would be OK? Think it was the american indian ones (will try to check).

Thanks for the info.

You can now order up to twenty $250 boxes of the 2009 Native American dollar. Since I ordered the normal 2 boxes a month ago, I only placed an order for 18 boxes today.

You're gonna break the delivery mans back... I noticed that 20 box limit as well & ordered up a storm over the course of the last few days. I put it in 3 different orders however...

I just topped out with an 18 box order, too. Good times. The guys at my bank are going to hate me even more, not that I really mind too much. Besides, I actually do spend some of them normally and I've run out.

Well if you browse through this thread you'll see what experience people have had. We don't have any trouble. At one of our banks they don't even want us to open the boxes. They just take our word for how much is in them.

Thanks for the update. I just ordered 5 cases ($1250). Doing 18 seems too risky for me. Hopefully now they'll change all the presidents to 20 packages each!

Thats what is holding me back from ordering a few boxes. What would happen if UPS leave the boxes outside and someone picks them up? Are the boxes big and do they indicate they are valuable (hey lots of $1 coin in here)?

No indication really - can't recall the sticker (return) one on it... but the box is just a brown box that's heavy... (it could be rocks )

My order has been on hold for almost a month, both president coins and the first 2 boxes of the native. The pres coins were a repeat, but I did it outside of my account and with a different card, but this is taking alot longer than my other orders (one is a different state). Has anyone else had a long delay in the last month?

PS, If I place an order for just the native coin, is that free shipping as well? Their site is down right now.
