Back in 2008 and 2009 I was churning those coins like nobody’s business. After going through over a quarter million dollars worth of coins I got a letter from the US Mint thanking my enthusiasm but asking politely to curtail my orders. Apparently they sent that letter to their “top 20 customers.” They still fulfilled more orders from me after the letter…
Last week Yahoo ran a front-page story about the coins again and that was the nail in the coffin. The US Mint just announced that they will no longer accept credit cards to buy coins.
Was fun while it lasted…on to other ways to meet spending thresholds!
