Dollar coins now easier to obtain
Posted by bitguru on October 5, 2008
Months ago I wrote that U.S. dollar coins can be hard to obtain. Well now it’s easier thanks to the U.S. Mint’s circulating $1 coin direct ship program, introduced to “encourage robust national circulation of $1 coins.” I’m not sure it will do much for national circulation, but I’m glad that the coins are now easier to get.
Shipping takes 1-2 weeks, but is absolutely free, and payment can even be made by credit card.
The minimum order is one box of 250 coins (which costs $250, of course). There is a maximum of two boxes per presidential design per order, but if you want more than two boxes you can order multiple presidential designs or simply place multiple orders.
Btw, did you know the penny is getting four new tails designs next year?
