    This set is limited to 75,000, was announced way back when, and they are STILL not ready? Great Job US Mint!

    Sometimes, I wonder if any real power checks to see if they go over their limit as the number of orders keep coming, closing so early, I am sure there were very many on backorder.

    Aren't you glad to have this opportunity to loaned our government your money for 4 months interest free all the while hoping they'll actually send you one in four months?

    Web site worked well for me at noon, I was impressed I had such good access on my phone right at the opening bell. At least they got that fixed after all of these years of issues.

    Regarding the site.

    - Their payment process had some issues, but after a retry it worked. Overall the site worked fine.
    - The set went to back order after about 20 minutes. My guess is the site switches the item to back order once the initial inventory supply is met in CART. Once the supply chain is met with verified orders it will go out of stock. My guess is the back-ordered item will ship in June and not August.

    Pretty sure you're not charged until shipped/processed, but that might have changed, too.

    Glad to see that all of the mint haters are coming out in force as usual. I think they live for days like this. The mint is not amazon. It takes a while to confirm all of the orders. You have to weed out all of the guys who try to order 5 to every address they can in order to skirt the mint limit. You know the type. It takes a while to get rid of all of the cheaters before the legit order can ship. Personally, I'm glad they take the time to weed out all of those who think that they are entitled to more than everyone else.

    You did a great job mint. Let the haters hate.
  10. Got my confirmation and receipt. Wish i could have got more than one set though. I had my fiance ordering at 12 on the dot. I had alerts leading up to it too

    I don't know that they weed out that many. Obviously, they do the ones at the same address. But, the professional flippers have ordered many from friends and relatives.

    Otherwise, how can they sell out in 20 minutes?

    By the time I receive mine they'll be selling on Ebay for $40 bucks or less.

    I entered my order at about 1:30 and got a confirmation within 1 to 2 minutes. Appears everything went smoothly.

    I ordered mine online around 12:30pm and I just got an email from the mint saying that my order has shipped. Let the games begin.

    My debit card has the dollar amount "pending" so I expect them to ship rather quickly come tomorrow. Usually, pending means that the charge was processed.

    I found the ordering process to be a whole lot easier than the crash and burn days of 2011!

    As for not having enough product available? That could literally be anything that goes into the shipping of these sets. From COA, to packaging materials, to the fancy printed boxes these go into! All these items are manufactured by subcontractors outside the US Mint and any one of them could be the problem in shipping.
    I don't blame the US Mint.
