i went to they site and it says:
 "The immediate bank deposit of $1 coins ordered through this Program does not result in their introduction into circulation and, therefore, does not comply with the intended purpose of the program."
are you breaking a law by doing this or does this run by the honor system?
Dan, do you know?

The amazing thing I noticed when I did this (a loooooong time ago) is that they would say iit can take up to 2 weeks to arrive and then they would ship it out 1-1/2 weeks later UPS air!

Just ordered from this link with free shipping in 1-2 weeks.  I tried yaakov s's link first and those coins had $5 shipping and coins were backordered.
If you don't care why would you comment?

I just tried the link I gave (which isnt mine I just cut and pasted from a post around 60 pages back) and there was free shipping. But as long as you get the coins it doesn't make a difference which link you use.

Does anyone know whether using CITI Amex credit card purchases Coin counts as purchase?

I think Citi counts them as cash advance, regardless if it's Amex or Visa/MC.

Citi has not charged me a cash advance fee for coins over the last few months.

Welcome to the forums!

Finally a newbie whose first post is an answer instead of a question, kudos to you :)

After 2 months of lurking, I figured it was time to give rather than take  :)
