 1- you dont need to worry at all, simply since The Mint wont be shipping it ifit was all on 1 order, guess you havent read theeh thread , theres a 4 box max order = $1000 and usually The Mint wont work it down to that amount but will CX the whole order

 2- anything over $250 gets overnighted FedEx

 3- its been slow at the banks since The Mint put the $1000 limit into place a while back. If you arent a good customer having tp status with them, I wouldnt bring $2000 in all at once more like $500 along with some ca$h or checks to mix it up. If you have top status then $1000 with ca$h and/or other checks should be OK . Of cause it depends on the Bank and Branch and if alot of others have been bring them in as well

 I once had a 5000 dollar order shipped USPS and the mailman just left it on my porch (w/o signature) on Yom Tov (first day!)!

I asked a sheila, to get a goy to bring it in (when I told the rabbi that I received a package worth $5000 he was pretty surprised, but didn't ask any questions)

You better believe it!
And he would've been happy had I stopped there.  I did 10 times that easy.

With all the talk of thousands of coins being left at doorsteps, maybe this thread should be moved to a "safer place"

Sorry if i'm asking something old, but can a bank refuse to take the US Mint coins? It is legal tender.. ?

Some banks will only take a limited amount each day (I think Apple bank's max is $750), or they will charge a fee for depositing coins.

Does it mean anything if my mint purchase made with a gift card shows "Your order request is on hold. "?  I ordered it Thursday (today is Wednesday).  This is my first mint purchase.

So it turns out that they held my order since I had a different shipping and billing address.  They mailed me a form to fill out to verify that I really authorized the purchase and really wanted to ship it somewhere else.  I filled it out and mailed it back, and got my coins yesterday (3 weeks after placing the order).  I guess next time I'll be shipping to the billing address, but at least we know it works this way.

I also have an account and was signed in.  I can only guess it is because it was my first mint purchase ever.
