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.

I've gone to TD with coins. Some of them just take them at the teller, others insist on using the machine. The default bag limit for dollar coins is lik $300 so the rep changed it to me to the max ($1000) and then helped me open the rolls into the machine and emptied the bags as they reached $1000. A bit of a pain!

I went to TDbank today. She made me use the machine. It had a limit of $100 per bag.. such a shame, the bags are very strong and can hold many pounds... she had to stand there and change the bag ten times! lol  She did it with a smile.  ;D

As for them charging: If you have a TD account there is no charge. If you don't, then there's a %6 charge.

I Don't think it was ever a free service to the public. All you need is an account with them, and they just verify it.

United States Mint dollar program back????
« Reply #214 on: November 08, 2010, 10:27:13 PM »
Hi everyone,

It seems like the direct ship program from the us mint is back.

But they make you say that you are not going to deposit directly in to the bank.

Does someone know if they will come after me if i buy about $25,000 and deposit $5,000 at a time????

http://catalog.usmint.gov/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/CategoryDisplay?catalogId=10001&storeId=10001&categoryId=27238&langId=-1&parent_category_rn=16238&top_category=16238

Thanks in advance.

It never left..

What it says is: "By clicking “Add to Cart” I agree that I understand, and will comply with, the intended purpose of the program."
..maybe just call and place your $1000 order via the phone  ;D


Does someone know if they will come after me if i buy about $25,000 and deposit $5,000 at a time????

"There is a 4-box $1 coin limit for every 10-day period on any and all $1 coin orders. Beyond that your credit card will not be authorized."

How soon after my purchase will they bill me for coins?
What about if I buy a mint gift card, will that bill quicker?

I need to BILL 2,000 within a week. Any other ideas?
