U.S. Mint Discontinuing Mail Orders
For many long-time collectors, ordering coins by mail has been a tradition; but, sadly, this way of doing things is in its final days: Beginning on September 30, 2017, the United States Mint is discontinuing all mail orders. But never fear, you can still easily place orders to fill your coin holders a few other ways.
It’s Easier Than It Sounds
The primary place where collectors can continue ordering from the United States Mint will soon be exclusively online at https://www.catalog.usmint.gov/ or via telephone.
Numismatists can view the United States Mint’s entire catalog on their website and add items to their cart with ease. These web-based channels are more efficient and cost-effective, granting a better overall experience to both the Mint and its consumers. Given that. browsing and buying will be more convenient than ever.
For those numismatists that are not as tech-savvy, orders over the phone will also be accepted, and are equally as convenient. You can call 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468) to place an order any day of the week from 8 a.m. to midnight ET.
Any mail orders placed after September 30, 2017 will be returned, so be sure to place yours by by then and add to your coin display case the old fashioned way one last time.
The United States Mint
Let’s End with a Little History
Created by Congress in 1792, the United States Mint is America’s lone producer of legal tender coinage throughout the country. It is accountable for generating circulating coinage for the country to administer its commerce. It became part of the Department of the Treasury in 1873, which is headquartered in Washington DC.
They also manufacture numismatic products like proof, commemorative, and uncirculated coins. They even make silver and gold bullion coins, as well as Congressional Gold Medals.
