2015 March of Dimes Special Silver Set

Today, May 4, 2015 at 12:00 Noon ET, the United States Mint will begin accepting orders for the 2015 March of Dimes Special Silver Set. The set is released as part of the commemorative coin program and includes two specially issued Roosevelt Dimes exclusive to the set.

The March of Dimes Commemorative Coins were authorized under Public Law 112-209, which provided for the issuance of up to 500,000 silver dollars in proof and uncirculated versions. The obverse design of the silver dollar is intended to represent the past of the March of Dimes Foundation and features profile portraits of President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Dr. Jonas Salk, two leaders in the fight against polio. The reverse design represents the foundation’s current dedication to the health of babies everywhere with a depiction of a baby in the hand of a parent.

The United States Mint began sales for individual proof and uncirculated versions of the silver dollars on March 13, 2015. Opening sales for the coins were somewhat tepid at 16,436 proofs and 7,940 uncirculated coins for a combined total of 24,376, representing less than 5% of the maximum authorized mintage. The most recently weekly sales report shows sales now reaching 42,424 proofs and 19,434 uncirculated coins for a combined total of 61,858.

2015_March-of-Dimes-Special

The 2015 March of Dimes Special Silver Set, which goes on sale today, contains the proof version of the commemorative silver dollar, one 2015 Reverse Proof Silver Roosevelt Dimes struck at the Philadelphia Mint with the “P” mint mark, and one 2015 Proof Silver Roosevelt Dime Struck at the West Point Mint with the “W” mint mark. The two dimes are struck in a composition of 90% silver and stated as only available within the special set.

roosevelt-dimes

Each of the dimes represent different firsts within the Roosevelt Dime series. The silver reverse proof dime will represent the first time that the reverse proof finish has been used within the series. The silver proof dime will represent the first time that a 90% silver dime has been struck at the West Point Mint. Both coins will also gain status as the lowest mintage issues of the Roosevelt Dime series.

The March of Dimes Special Silver Set is priced at $61.95. This compares to regular pricing of $51.95 for the individual proof commemorative silver dollar.

A maximum production limit of 75,000 units has been assigned to the set. Orders will initially be limited to five units per household. The Mint will re-evaluate the order limit over the period the set is available for sale.

    I still say these sets will be “currently unavailable” by the end of today.

  2. says

    Ordered mine with no problem as expected. For the first time in awhile, I am genuinely uncertain as to how a “unique” product like this is going to do and am not anticipating an end of day sellout.

  3. Hidalgo says

    I thought there would be a waiting room for orders. Apparently not. I was very surprised at how easily and quickly my order went through. Way to go US Mint!

  4. says

    Chris, you’re right. Just tried it. It’s loading but taking awhile. Perhaps there’s more of a rush going on than anticipated.

    (incidentally, I am 140 past Dusty in the order ranking)

  5. Jon H says

    After a few website errors, I just placed my order. Should be a cool set to have!!!

  6. George says

    Very easy ordering #03187. With only 75,000 sets authorized, two unique coins and a 5 set per person ordering limit my thought is a sell-out and a quick price rise as the key coins to the set. We’ll see

  7. MadHatter says

    Received several errors and couldn’t place my order for at least 5 min. ended at #0319xxxx

  8. MadHatter says

    Received several errors and couldn’t place my order for at least 5 min. ended at #0319xxxx

  9. says

    The order page froze on me at 12:01 and kicked me off. Managed to get order through at 12:02 and now the website is extremely slow. 1,900 past Dusty.

  10. MarkInFlorida says

    I placed 2 orders 3 minutes apart (2 sets and 1 set) and there were 3100 orders between my orders. 03188xxx to 03191xxx.

  11. Elvin C says

    Some minor slowdown, but order placed at about 12:04 PM Eastern. USM031890XX

  12. cagcrisp says

    SEVERAL SEVERAL errors. Site seems to have crashed. Took 12 minutes to complete order…

  13. Rich says

    the first time I hit the order button the website came back could not find the page had to reorder
    and it went thru

  14. Jim Seymour says

    On the second try, I got my order for 3 in: USM03192xxx
    (No confirmation email, yet, but I’m not worried)

  15. Dustyroads says

    I’m curious about what the average order size is, anyone wish to share? I ordered one.

  16. Louis says

    don’t know why I am the only one who can’t order. at final stage keeps saying page does not exist!

  17. JagFan says

    I grabbed my 5 sets – I ordered straight from my Wish List and was able to grab a few products on the same order.

    Order# 031928xx

    I would expect a sell out today for what they have in stock.

    Happy Collecting!

  18. Zaz says

    “The page you are looking for cannot be found”

    Sigh. Just like the A25 set. Good times.

  19. Erik H says

    Now that I have my 5 sets ordered, I’ll make my comments on future appreciation of the dimes in the set.

    This is a no brainer. The set cost $61.95 minus $51.95 for the cost of the Proof MOD Dollar means that the SILVER Dimes cost $5 each. Raw 2014 Silver Dimes sell for $5+ on eBay. Raw clad 1996-W dimes sell for more and there are over 1.4 million minted. So considering these facts I consider this a risk free purchase.

    If these don’t sell out right away and the mint lifts the ordering limit I will probably pick up more.

  20. JagFan says

    ** Louis – keep trying! That happened to me 3 times before I was able to punch thru!

  21. Dave SW FL says

    Louis
    I am getting the same message.

    Very frustrating

    Using iPad

    Will try the Dell

  22. art says

    After at least 4 tries and various error messages, order finally placed. What happened to the waiting room? Would prefer a waiting room instead of all of these problems and error messages.

  23. Louis says

    thanks, guys. finally got through for 3. judging by the comments and my experience these will be gone today for sure.

  24. Larry says

    Had a problem with my order right at the last step, Confirm Order, said web page unavailable. Tried again with no problem. Hopefully the first order did not go through, if it did I will have to call and cancel. Either way sure is a lot better than the old days.

  25. Brad says

    Louis,

    Keep trying, I kept getting that message too but after four failures finally got it to go through.

  26. Micro says

    I was getting the “page cannot be found” error, tried a CTRL+Refresh and the order completed.

  27. A&L Futures says

    I was able to get in two orders.

    First order placed at 12:00 — 3186XXX
    Second order placed at 12:07 — 3192XXX

    The difference between the two orders > 5,900.

    p.s. U.S. Mint’s website was really slow today.

  28. fmtransmitter says

    several problems placing an order…:(~ decided to skip it…Felt it was not a winner and not meant to be in the collection. I can see the dimes later graded maybe.

  29. thePhelps says

    Well… I am in – got tied up and had to try a little later than I anticipated. I think these are selling pretty fast based on the numbers I am seeing… mine is 3199XXX

  30. Louis says

    by the way for those looking forward to the 5 oz HR Kookburra- There will be no sales to the USA from Perth! So try an Aussie dealer tomorrow. good luck to all as Keithster says.

  31. fmtransmitter says

    May 4, 2015 at 12:18 pm

    I was getting the “page cannot be found” error, tried a CTRL+Refresh and the order completed.

    Same here.

  32. marc says

    Error page when I first placed my order. 12:05 my order went in # 03190xxx. Got 5 sets , I hope to get them!

  33. JBK says

    I was on the site logged in and waiting to go before noon. I put 5 in my cart the second the order button came up, but kept getting ”page not found” errors when I tried to finish the checkout. My cart kept the 5 in place, though, so I was able to seal the deal at 12:07. A friend of mine who I convinced to order a few sets got her order in without any issues.

    I know the dollar coin is not a hot item but I still think there is minimal downside to the set . The special 1996W dime has maintained a good premium (of course, it was free to begin with) and has a much higher mintage, so I figure that 2 low mintage dimes must be worth a good chunk of the $62 price of the set. I guess the big question will be if there is an active separate market for just the dimes in which case there will be a lot of lonely silver dollars in incomplete presentation cases….

  34. Louis says

    also GM has 1 oz hr wedge tails today. 70’s are gone, and gem’s too I believe, so only 69’s left.

  35. JBK says

    Yikes! 9600 orders in ten minutes? This set might be sold out before I finish my lunch!

  36. Dave SW FL says

    Finally took my on file CC
    Order 03288xxx. xxx is in the upper 800s

    Houston, we have a problem
    Should not take 14 tries to get the system to accept the CC
    Unless the system was sabotaged so big boys could get their orders in first.

    On the other hand, looks like there is pretty big demand for this one!

  37. says

    Very surprised to hear of all these troubles, though glad you were able to get through, Louis. Perhaps I should have bought more than just my one set!

  38. Tim says

    I was ready set go at 12 but took 8 minutes after the page does not exist errors…. 2 sets

  39. byterite says

    USMO3193xxx–First order crashed–second went through in about 21/2 minutes. These are rolling right off of the shelf.

  40. fmtransmitter says

    Thanks Louis!

  41. Louis says

    that was what kept stalling for me too even though I have a saved cc.
    decided to go back for 2 more. since they don’t ship til Aug., we can always
    cancel if premiums are not that high.

  42. Ikaika says

    Was logged in before 12:00 pm and had the MOD set page. Ordered within the first minute along with a replacement ATB 5 oz. Fastest transaction I ever had with the mint website. 30 sec from selecting, checking out and completing the purchase. Good luck to all 🙂

  43. fmtransmitter says

    @Dave SW FL: Big boys had their orders ready set go a long time ago, they get the 9am to 12pm ordering time frame.

  44. Dustyroads says

    Louis~ I wrote a dealer about this, they said the 5 oz. Kookaburras would be on sell bright and early Perth time May 5.

  45. sharks2th says

    The website kept freezing up and giving errors like the old site. They obviously have not “fixed” their server capacity problem. It took me 14 minutes to get through. Order # 03198xxx at 12:14PM. It looks like they will sell out in 21.4 minutes if the server does not fully crash and if each order has 5 sets. I tried on two devices like Louis and finally got through on the computer. Last time the mobile went through quicker when there was heavy site use. I had to hit the refresh and back buttons a couple of times to get the payment to load. I had to type in the cc code 3 times before I finally got to the receipt page.

  46. thePhelps says

    Well…since I am not home to check – I have no idea if my order went through or not. I got the order number at the end, but when I look in my order history – I don’t see the order. I guess I’ll have to wait and see…

  47. Blair J. Tobler says

    Ikaika – I did the same. I kept refreshing until the “remind me” note went away, and ordering went super fast. I got my acknowledgement email at 12:01, and the confirmation email at 12:16.

  48. Jim Seymour says

    Decided to opt for my final 2. No troubles with order – USM03202xxx @ 9:28.

  49. fmtransmitter says

    Yes, if you get an order # you are good, seems to take 20 minutes for it to show in history…

  50. Zaz says

    2nd order for two more:

    12:31 #32032xx

    Yep “in stock” date is Fri Aug 14, 2015.

  51. Brad says

    Well, it’s showing “backorder” status on the product page now. Effectively a “waiting list” I guess. Wow, they went pretty fast!

  52. Ikaika says

    @ Blair J. Tobler

    “I kept refreshing until the “remind me” note went away, and ordering went super fast. I got my acknowledgement email at 12:01, and the confirmation email at 12:16.”

    Yes. I think that was the most efficient way to order today.

    @ Louis

    “most blog excitement since the Kennedy coins!”

    Agree 😉

  53. Tinto says

    I had problems with the system too, I had Google Chrome and placed an order about 2 or 3 minutes after 12noon … got a message saying the page was not found when I tried to checkout… tried again and I had an error message against my CC info even though this is an existing one on file with the Mint and expiring in 2016 … tried a third time and went to the checkout button but still out the page not found error …. tried a fourth time …. same sh*t so I shut down Chrome and used IE instead and got through in one go …

    Got an email confirmation of my order … it is 31959XX

  54. says

    Wow, looks like I was completely caught flatfooted here! I was not expecting this level of interest. Glad I showed up for today’s festivities. 🙂

  55. Dustyroads says

    fmtransmitter~ My order history was updated almost instantaneously, plus no problems. I have all fiber optic lines here in my town with 50 mbs of speed, don’t know if this helped or not.

  56. Blair J. Tobler says

    Dusty – My order history shows today’s order, but it won’t show it when I click on it – it just recycles back to the list. But I got the confirmation email so I think I’m good.

  57. Grampa Dave says

    In at 9:20 PST out in 5 minutes , no problems, Backordered till Aug 14.
    ##032031XX

  58. Tinto says

    @thePhelps

    Mine got hit too ….

    Glad I decided to order today right after 12noon rather than wait …. my order history shows processing (for 3 sets).

  59. Erik H says

    My order shows PROCESSING.

    It seemed like the C.C. processing took a little while for me as well (I was expecting a crash) but over all I haven’t notice any lag time. I’ve loaded several pages since.

  60. IPS_STUFF says

    Anyone keeping status, I think Hidalgo is our resident statistician, if I am not mistaken.

    If everyone orders 5 (I am not saying they did….) it would be 15000 orders before a sell out.
    I know we went through 1000 orders in first 20 minutes. I do expect it to slow due to the household limit of 5.

    I would have bought more if I could, I too agree that long term only 75,000 is low mintage even for a coin that does not circulate.

  61. A Bob says

    Phone and Internet at work down until 10 minutes past orders started. Yikes!
    The website took my address with no problem for the first time ever. It does not typically recognize my private mail box.

  62. Dustyroads says

    Blair J. Tobler ~My first order shows when I click on it, the second which I made later is in the history, but is like yours and will not open. I’m pretty sure their system just needs to catch up. We should see it before long.

  63. Larry says

    If the first orders won’t be filled till August, the mint is back to their old tricks. I don’t know why they can’t understand how this gets folks angry, especially when you know the HSN guy will have some for sale next week. Ugh.

  64. Chris Lehr says

    Larry – I think people who ordered pre-backorder will get them sooner. At least that is my expectation – they sold out of on hand and will make more.

  65. EvilFlipper says

    In for 10. Maybe 15 if my other order makes it. I predicted a sellout in 1/2 hour. Looks like I might have been right!!

  66. Dustyroads says

    IPS_STUFF~ Assuming the average order was something like 3.5 sets per, I’m thinking the Mint sold around 50,000 sets by the time the “BACK ORDER” status went up.

  67. fmtransmitter says

    I just hope longarm isn’t giving his girlfriend the longarm in the jaw if she missed ordering her allotment via his command…

  68. byterite says

    This item is available to be ordered now, but it is not currently in stock. Additional inventory is being made. Please add the item to your cart to see when additional inventory is expected to be available.

  69. Jon H says

    My order is processing if you look my order history, but if you go to the order page, it says ON HOLD. My credit card has been hit, too.

  70. Sith says

    I bit the bullet and ordered one. Back ordered expected ship date Aug 16, 2015…

  71. Blair J. Tobler says

    Dusty – I logged out and logged back in, and now it’ll let me see the order. We definitely taxed the system today!!

    Larry – I thought I read an earlier comment suggesting the mint had 50,000 of these ready to go. I think that may be correct, because I through right away and got no indication of it shipping in August. I think maybe it’s the later orders that will have to wait.

  72. fmtransmitter says

    I ID finally get the product notification email. Something has been fixed! Imagine that!

  73. fmtransmitter says

    Product Notification
    The product you requested a reminder for is now available.

    2015 March of Dimes Special Silver Set
    2015 March of Dimes Special Silver Set
    $61.95

  74. says

    Larry,

    I think that people who ordered in the first few minutes or so before the “Backorder” button went up are going to get theirs, and relatively soon as thePhelps mentioned his card being pinged already. The mint seems to have had only a limited quanitity of them “on hand,” probably because they were caught flatfooted by orders and weren’t expecting this heavy of a response.

    I can’t predict the future but I cannot imagine people will have to wait until August to get these sets. That’s gotta be a placeholder date.

  75. Samuel says

    CO, no matter what, the CC will need to be authorized the moment you place the order, will disappear in maybe 3 days.

  76. Larry says

    I will see the shipping date when I get home, hopefully it’s not August. I got in right away before any backorder.

  77. says

    Samuel,

    I may have been misusing my terminology.

    There is a pending charge in my “pending transactions” segment listing today’s order from the mint. If memory serves, the charge doesn’t get listed as “pending” until the mint is ready to take your money and send the product.

  78. Samuel says

    CO, no, the “pending” will be there for about 3 days. if they ship the order, the charge will become “posted”, or, it will just disappear.

  79. Teddy Salad says

    I’m backordered as well. as of 1245pm. Hopefully I will receive the set. Only interested in the dimes. The dollar is not all that nice. If I don’t get the set, I am sure there will be slabbed versions of the dimes only which I would like to buy. Maybe someone will even have the first W mint dime available as a 3 coin set. The new order site is very good though.

  80. Tinto says

    @CaptainOverkill

    Don’t they ping one’s CC only when they are ready to charge you esp. if the amount is for the order total? I hope so …

    I revisited my order page and now it shows “Processing” and “FedEx SmartPost POB” whereas before I could not get in. BTW I got an initial notification from the Mint about my order around 12:11 and then another around 12:50 and the last one includes the item and shipping and CC details. Fingers crossed here

  81. Louis says

    I agree with Sam. Like with most merchants first they authorize the charge to make sure you have the funds available, and that either gets processed as a charge, or drops off in a couple days if they are not ready to ship.
    We will see.

  82. Blair J. Tobler says

    The first “ping” is to verify that your card is ok. The real ping hits when they ship. From my experience, if it doesn’t ship within three days, the original ping will no longer hold your card.

  83. Erik H says

    I believe that the August ship date showed up around the time I posted it here. So like others have said, the first orders should ship soon, the rest….waiting, waiting, waiting….

  84. fmtransmitter says

    More fixes to report, My order history is there along with status of orders and dates. Looks like someone manually went in and connected my old account with my new one that THEY (CUST SRVC) said to create when the new site came online.

  85. JagFan says

    **Louis
    **FMTX
    **Dustyrhodes

    Directcoins has both the 1 oz & 5 oz HR Kooks for sale NOW… The 5 oz is limited to only 500 & the 1 oz is 8,000.

    Get them now if you want them, tomorrow it will be to late!

  86. Teach says

    I had the same problems with page not found the first 4 tries. I was finally able to order 3 at 12:05.

  87. jhawk92 says

    Like others, I had a minor glitch when I was trying to check out. I got kicked out to the main page, but my cart still showed the two sets. I went back in and completed my order without issue. Time 12:03 and I was #03188. My order history now shows “Processing” and my card has been pinged, so I’ll look forward to seeing these, hopefully soon.

  88. fmtransmitter says

    3200000 order #’s would indicate a possible sell out I believe…Just guessing here.

  89. Erik H says

    Someone has already paid $119 for a pre-sale set on the bay. A few have paid $99.

  90. Boz says

    7431 order was stuck in the bag for an hour but seems to have cleared now. the backorder came up while it was in process. my order must have been the one that broke the system

  91. Mr. Kairu says

    Wow seems these are going to go by fast! Unfortunately I am sticking in my budget and focusing on other things right now (Early large cents… expensive) but good luck to all who ordered these!

  92. longarm says

    Mine is already processing.

    fmtransmitter – did someone piss in your Wheaties this morning?

  93. Ikaika says

    Direct coins also have a “0.5 grams gold WTE” with the Mercanti design.

    “http://www.directcoins.com.au/2015-australian-wedge-tailed-eagle-0-5g-gold-coin.html”

  94. Ends in Error says

    I suppose those reverse proof presidents will sell out in 5 minutes – when the time comes to order.

  95. Louis says

    Both of mine are processing too, but I don’t think that means they are shipping soon. Only time will tell!

  96. Boz says

    FM way past 32000 but then peoplemight be ordering other things today too. gotta be close to a sell out.

    the web upgrade last year made 4 hour sellouts look tame. now it can happen in 30 minutes or less.

    the ordering system apparently now is ahead of the credit card processing infrastructure

  97. cagcrisp says

    Before you guys Count all the money you are going to make on these coins, the Status Needs to go to OOS or SO and Not remain at BO. IT’s been at BO for Over an hour now…

  98. Brad says

    It will probably show as “currently unavailable” for 3 months before getting changed to “sold out”, if ever!

  99. IPS_STUFF says

    It will mostly remain backorder until the work out the addresses with over 5 ordered and the credit cards with insufficient funds.

    I expect it to show backorder or OOS for a few days.

  100. thePhelps says

    Louis and Sam… in the past my CC has been hit with a minor charge ($.01 or $.02) a few days prior to shipping the coins. I haven’t had the full amount charged like I see on this set. The recent shipper has been hitting the card and the product has shipped in almost all cases right after that. I think the system has changed a bit.

  101. byterite says

    Erik H says

    May 4, 2015 at 1:36 pm

    Someone has already paid $119 for a pre-sale set on the bay. A few have paid $99.

    120+ already !!

  102. Louis says

    anyone here ever order pucks from Bullion Exchanges? If so, how was the quality?

  103. Boz says

    Eleanor Roosevelt never did show BO OOS or whatever. She just disappeared comletely from the website. Look out Jackie, thats the next possible crunch unless they announce higher mintages for her FS coins.

  104. Dustyroads says

    2015 Australian Kookaburra 5 oz. 25th anniversary coin – As worded by Direct Coins:

    The Perth Mint will release no more than 500 of the 25th Anniversary of the Australian Kookaburra 2015 5oz Silver Proof High Relief Coins in this packaging out of a maximum mintage of 1,000.

  105. vk says

    With about 22k order as of 2pm….

    3.5 ave/order – It comes to 77k – Sold out
    3 ave/ order – 66k – Nearing sellout.

    If it is not sold out at 2pm, it should in next hour.

    Good luck all those who bought.

  106. Samuel says

    theP, I placed two orders, one is “processing”, one is “BO” from order history, both show up in CC as “pending” transaction.

  107. Louis says

    Boz- the Mint already said they will make up to 30K Jackie coins if the demand is there.

  108. cagcrisp says

    @Boz, The Eleanor Roosevelt never went OOS of BO because it was Pulled by the Mint. The Product limit was Never even close to happening. IF you get close to the Product limit you have to go OOS or SO or you run the risk of selling more than the Product limit…

    IF and only IF the Mint wanted to they could put the Eleanor Roosevelt back on order since it hasn’t hit the max mintage Just as the Mint put the SR7 back on BO because it has yet to hit the 15,000 Product limit…

    Once sales get close to 75,000 for this Special Set it will go OOS…

  109. fmtransmitter says

    @Dusty: key wording is ” in this packaging” so buyer beware. The rest were bought and slabbed by GM.

  110. Boz says

    no reason to panic about Jackie then.

    if things have settled down to 1000 orders per hour, then guess we need to know what the numbers were when backorder went up. if 50k sold in the first hour, and up to 5k per hour since, then we have about 15k left to go.

    Someone has already paid $119 for a pre-sale set on the bay. A few have paid $99.

    120+ already !!

    Hope the seller gets it in hand…I prefer to have anything in hand before “pre-sale” but each to his own, I don’t sell a lot, I am a buyer!

  112. fmtransmitter says

    @longarm: no one pissed in my wheaties and others will say I hardly ever throw punches but when you said that about her I just about pissed my pants. Nothing personal…

  113. Boz says

    thanks for the update on Anna Eleanor Roosevelt

    wonder why they did that pull shortage of blanks or something like that? Or were there defects in the initial coins?

  114. fmtransmitter says

    @Ikaika: Yes, it was discussed on WMB that there would be half gram WTE’s being sold.

  115. Louis says

    Thanks, Ikaia. I did hear about that and mentioned it in one of the articles. I decided to pass as my eyes can barely see things that small!

    FM- very good pt. I figured that is why Perth won’t sell to Yanks. I still think these should do reasonably well and really just want one for the coin, not to make money.

  116. fmtransmitter says

    Tough to see such a large Raptor on a tiny half gram coin, even if it is Gold. Too small of a canvass for me but I see the marketing behind it. Many wanted it in gold and couldn’t get one at the price point for 1, 2 , and 5 ounce size.

  117. fmtransmitter says

    It is so small they had to remove the branches to make it fit….Let us know how it looks please. Maybe post an actual link to a photo..

  118. cagcrisp says

    OT: I was out Friday and Saturday as I went to watch the Arkansas Derby winner American Pharoah Win the Kentucky Derby…

    I think I have been to 10 Kentucky Oaks/ Derbys…

  119. says

    Has anyone seen a $10.00 Roosevelt proof/reverse proof dimes only purchase option on the Mint website? That’s the only way I would opt for these dimes.
    Sure, you can have the dimes for $10.00–but not before also laying out an additional $51.95 for a less than spectacular commemorative silver.

  120. Ikaika says

    @ Louis aand FM

    Thanks guys. I did get the 0.5 grams gold WTE because that one is the only gold version I can afford or am willing to pay.

    Now: To see or not to see the design due to its size remains to be determined. I do have a powerful magnifying glasses with me 🙂 Worse case scenario I still have 0.5 grams of gold!

  121. JBK says

    The mint stated that the dimes would only be avaialble in the 75,000 sets. I am sure there will be lots of people who will sell the dimes separately on the aftermarket, but the price will be lots more than $5 each….

    I predict that once the market sets a value on the dimes, it will be the silver $ that is “free”, or almost free.

  122. Hidalgo says

    @Hawkster – you can bet that major coin dealers will be selling the special Roosevelt dimes, graded by third party graders, on auction site. I would assume that initial prices will be high for First Strike or Early Releases PR/PF70 graded coins. Whether prices will increase or decrease will depend on the number of coins certified as PR/PF70, how many sets are shipped before the cut off for First Strike/Early Releases designation, sustained collector demand, etc.

  123. Boz says

    The way I read the mints advertising is that the dimes can only be sold in 2015, and that there will be no surprise offerings in other packaging later on. $30 per dime is not a bad deal even without the silver dollar.

    Go for it Hawkster

  124. Blair J. Tobler says

    Boz – that’s because the MOD dollar can only be sold in 2015. If the dimes were offered seperately (please don’t!), they could pretty much sell them for as long as they wanted to.

  125. says

    But Boz, I’ll than be stuck with a $52. MOD Commemorative that I don’t want, and will most likely not hold its value on the secondary market. Now, if those two proof dimes were Mercury commems, I’d be on them in a heartbeat. Or, I’ll just wait to 2016 when there will actually be a special Mercury dime offered by the Mint.

  126. Blair J. Tobler says

    I’m starting to think we won’t see a reverse proof set this year.

  127. says

    Dave SW FL

    But Dave, you ‘ll still have an example of a Roosevelt dime RP if the Mint offers a RP set in 2015. Dimes are such small coins that hardly anyone will notice that the mint marks don’t match.

  128. Larry says

    It clearly says on the mints website that this is the ONLY set that will include the dimes. 75K will make these the key coins in the series by a long run. The key coin to any series usually does pretty well in the long run. Hard to see any way these coins don’t do well.

  129. KEITHSTER says

    Well that was fun had put in for the day off. Even though I can now order on the work computer used to not let you confirm they did manage a fix around that now. But so many people use the one at work I did not want to take that chance. So was already winning by getting paid not to work! Got online and in with two min. till go time in and out with five 12:02. Then went back in 12:05 slow and troubled but with tricks out at 12:10 with five more! And to those with the you know there is a limit of 5 on those sorry but no small animals were hurt by this well except those two mice on the sticky paper this AM. So yes bring on them RVPP they should bring on some wrath! Looks like My pucks made it home today. Did get 4 more rolls of the turkey in D so am up to 11 now and did open three but still only the two with the turkey poo and 12 with the die-crack? So Yes Good Luck To All:>:>:>:>:>:>:>:>:>:>

  130. cagcrisp says

    @Hawkster, Hang in there for the 2016 Gold Winged Liberty Head Dimes…

  131. Louis says

    Blair- I agree. The Mint says only the coin and chronicles sets will have RP prez dollars, and any proof set would include the prez dollar set, so that right there tells you no RP proof set this year. Probably.

  132. fmtransmitter says

    Yea, that would really piss a lot of people off if the times showed up in other sets somehow. I don’t look at it like $5 a dime because I can only get melt for the medal so apples to apples…

  133. fmtransmitter says

    BTW, that mythical creature is stunning too. I am always on the look out for Piedfort as I feel this is the pinnacle at this moment in our hobby outside of getting funky as I am older, like little gold nuggets in the center, stained glass pieces, etc. But those sell for big money every time. I watch the prices and they hold their value quite nicely and increase as well. Chess game, not checkers. We win some, we lose some.

    What is a Piedfort?
    Popular with collectors for more than a century, and always hard to find, piedforts are highly sought after. We get asked all the time, “What is a piedfort?” There are two different, but related, stories of the origin of the word “piedfort”. The first says that it literally means “strong foot” in French (from pied, foot and fort, strong). The second says this word was appropriated by the mint centuries ago to mean “heavy measure” or “heavy weight”. In both cases, the sense of serious heft to the coin is obvious.

    Often the word “piedfort” is translated as “double-thick”, but this is neither a literal translation nor a precisely accurate definition. Numismatically speaking, any coin that is 50% or more thicker than a standard version qualifies as a piedfort, although some piedforts are, indeed, twice as thick as normal.

  134. fmtransmitter says

    @Louis: Exactly, the RP set they meant was spread out in many different product offerings…NOW, who is going to assemble the slabbed FS 2015 RP collection and sell it???? HSN, you listening?

  135. Louis says

    have you seen the privateer piedfort UHR rounds? not coins but really stunning. I received one on Sat.

  136. Sith says

    I checked my order, no change but I did notice they removed the cancel my order feature, or the system has not yet updated to show the cancel button.

  137. A Bob says

    Think of the proof dollar as a gift with purchase on the two dimes. Most GWPs are worthless.

  138. Louis says

    My 12: 15 order says processing and 12:25 order says backordered though the backorder sign was not up untl about 15 min, later. I guess there are degrees or stages of backordering.

  139. mark says

    Someone on ebay already has 10 sets in hand for sale. Bought them at the mint store.

  140. Louis says

    Mark. That is interesting. Must have been Philly or Denver because at the official DC sales counter they always say they can’t sell products with a household limit.

  141. fmtransmitter says

    @Louis, yes I have, I really like those. 2 ounce so nice and heavy with a beautiful canvass…That ship looks stunning…

  143. mark says

    Not sure how to post links. Just search ebay …march of dimes…then newly listed. Look for actual picture of set.

  144. Louis says

    please let us know if they have them. I’d be surprised if they got any before any mail orders shipped but I could be wrong.

  145. Larry says

    Compared to the last crazy issue, which would have been the enhanced Sac, the amount of comments seems to be way down. Are we getting used to this or is there less interest in this set?

  146. thePhelps says

    Louis and FM…I mentioned those rounds when they were first announced and again last week when I got mine. Those are well worth the $43 for 2 ounces of silver… the ship and waves are really pronounced and a HR round for that price…I want more. “probably”

  147. Louis says

    Thanks, CC. I am going to call and ask if/why they changed policies.

    Phelps- I am in the same boat. I just wish there were a capsule for them.

  148. Mr. Kairu says

    @The Phelps and others…
    Yeah I bought three of those Privateer Rounds also. They are amazing! Got the first one and I needed more so bought two more (one for son down the road and another possibly for pocket piece). I plan on raising my son thinking they were handed down from pirate ancestors and contain cursed powers. 🙂

  149. mark says

    Just called Denver shop. Said you have to order directly from U S Mint. Because of household limit.

  150. Teach says

    @Louis – please let us know what you hear back concerning their current policies.

  151. D Rittenhouse says

    The Mint made this statement on Facebook about the MoD Special Silver Sets:
    “they will not be available at our retail locations.”

    Since the Mint operates only a single retail location (its store inside the D.C. HQ), the plural “locations” would have to be interpreted as including the Philadelphia and Denver contractor-operated retail locations.

    https://www.facebook.com/UnitedStatesMint/photos/a.331791684458.184447.103695769458/10153306523659459/?type=1&theater

  152. Teach says

    I think the reason for less comments was due to the EU Sacs being a surprise offering. No surprise here. Plus all of the mystery when ordering the Sacs. Windows opening and closing on sales. There were just things happening that we hadn’t experienced before. Maybe that is why there are not as many comments. I wouldn’t think it would be due to lack of interest, sales seem to be as strong as expected.

  153. mark says

    Told the guy at the Denver shop. Somebody has them in hand on ebay already. His response was WOW dont know how he got them already..his final word was (Interesting).

  154. Teach says

    First day FS slabbed DC dimes! Good thing everyone didn’t know about the DC shop selling these sets, it would have been like Chicago ( Gold Kennedy ) all over again 🙂

  155. Dustyroads says

    Called the DC Mint store, MoD sets were indeed sold from that location at noon.

  156. Louis says

    Dusty- But did they say any where left? They told me yes, but they guy who answered was not one of the folks I usually talk to, and I wonder if he was confused. Seems very odd to post a note on FB and then do the opposite!

  157. mark says

    I think the mint has some explaining to do. If I would have known that I would have hired homeless people and brought them in by the bus load.

  158. Teach says

    The DC shop must have been selling more than the HH limit at their store because the guy on eBay has 10 available for sale right now. Unless he had someone else go in and buy more for him.

  159. Louis says

    I would have jumped in my private jet and hired out of work actors to run across the street and scream “they have the MOD sets”!!! and then bought a nice mansion with the profits.

  160. mark says

    They were indeed sold there. The guy on ebay says he has the receipt from the DC Mint.

  161. GoldFishin says

    OT- Received my Kisatchie bullion pucks from Provident today. I have to give the US Mint a shout out for so drastically improving the quality over the Everglades and Homestead coins. I would not be surprised if we see a couple of 70 grades come out this offering.
    Also I don’t know if anyone has noticed, but the large pine tree on the left and the tall grass at the bottom of the Reverse create a really large “L”. To me it really jumped off the coin, had never noticed it until I had them in hand. Maybe it was the strong tea I just drank! 🙂

  162. Boz says

    I would have told my friends at the Amtrak police to come down at 2 minutes before noon and force the waiting line to relocate across the street. Then make a video of people falling down in the street and sell it to America’s Most Funniest.

  163. JBK says

    If they intend to chase labels then the joke might be on those who bought in person in DC. I am pretty sure the dollar coin will not be slabbed as being from the special set since they are not sealed in a shipping box.

    If they just want to sell raw (which is how I collect them) then it is not an issue, of course.

  164. Ikaika says

    Person on the Bay selling the MOD has this note: “Brand New – Purchase on 5/4/2015 12:06 PM from DC US Mint Store. Receipt indicates purchased on 5/4/2015 11:06 AM (instead of 12:06 PM)”

    Question: DC is Eastern time. US Mint started the sale at 12:00 pm EST. Why would the receipt be 11:06 am? Doesn’t the mint go by EST? Or only for internet sales?

  165. Teach says

    My guess is that they didn’t change the time on their register when they were to spring ahead one hour.

  166. fmtransmitter says

    Where’s the guy with the you-tube video of coins falling out of his mouth? He always posts a quick video of in hand products he gets from the D.C. shop….

    Still not OOS. Not good for those planning on retiring on the Sales Proceeds…

  171. TMMSR0127 says

    Cag:

    I am surprised that there is not an OOS yet. I really thought that there would be a quick sell out considering the fact that 15,000 buyers maxing out their purchase of five would very quickly wipe out the 75,000 available. Oh well I have been wrong before, and I will be wrong again…

  172. Brad says

    There’s no way that all 75,000 of these sets have not been sold yet. A lot of orders are going to be cancelled due to lack of inventory. The problem is, it may take 2+ months before that happens. The Mint really shouldn’t string people along like that.

  173. D Rittenhouse says

    I wonder whether this person realizes he’s the only one here actually talking about wild profits.

  174. Dave SW FL says

    We need a statement of how many sets were available for sale today.

    Also, a statement of who made the decision to sell these at the DC store after the release stating they would NOT be sold there.

    Is ANYBODY in governmental positions accountable for ANYTHING anymore??

  175. cagcrisp says

    They have 5 more back in Inventory to Sell. I just Cancelled my order…

  176. GoldFishin says

    Earliest reported order#03186xxx 12:01EST
    Latest reported order #03209xxx 2:18 EST

    That’s about 23K orders if my math is correct…..I would make an educated guess that there were at least 2.5 sets per order, probably closer to 3. For every customer that buys one or two sets, I believe there is another customer that purchases the max 5.
    8/3= 2.66 multiplied by 23K comes to around 61,180 set sold by 2:18 est. I think this is a rather conservative estimate. I expect if we are not sold out already, we will be by tomorrow sometime.

    From the posts here on MNB when backorder status was first implemented I would guess there were in the neighborhood of 40K units sold. I am thinking maybe that is what they had in stock ready to go, could be less than that. Again, just guesses based on the posts here….don’t shoot the messenger. 😉

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/2015-March-of-Dimes-Special-Silver-Sets-unopened-box-of-5-PRE-SALE-/181735204340?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2a504325f4

  177. Louis says

    By now it should be apparent to anyone who has followed the changes to the Mint’s site that there is an ongoing problem with how products are tagged as out of stock, backordered, etc. My first article for Coin World was about that very issue and was written in part in hopes it would have some impact, but it continues to be an issue. So no assumptions can be made from the lack of OOS. It seems pretty safe to say they either sold all the sets that were ready and then backordered it, or may have sold all of them already, in which case those ordering now will be disappointed.

    I did my part to try to get things straightened out, but the Eleanor Roosevelt situation alone showed it is still a problem.

  178. SilverFan says

    cagcrisp says
    MAY 4, 2015 AT 7:47 PM

    They have 5 more back in Inventory to Sell. I just Cancelled my order…

    Why? If a few sets were sold in DC, that means that they have stock on hand and should ship soon.

  179. Louis says

    Dave SW FL- I agree there is a contradiction that needs to be addressed and will try to find out what happened, but how accountable are people in non-governmental positions these days? When CEO’s run their companies into the ground, or help cause a global economic crisis, what happens? They get paid even more than they did before and get bigger bonuses. So there are problems all around esp. at the top.

  180. Barry says

    @Goldfishin- Sorry for the delay in responding. I had a family issue for a couple days. Thank you for the reply. The Guardhouse capsule was labeled 39mm but, it fit a 38mm Canadian Maple Leaf coin. I bought a silver round ( Hercules _ Mares ) that they mint and they list it as 39 mm. The round didn’t fit the 39mm capsule. Their is an issue with the capsule ( labeling or Manufacture ) or ,the round is a little oversized, Provident denies any error on their part and only said to order Airtite capsules on future orders.

  181. Tinto says

    @Louis

    And those at the top make sure there are layers and layers of defenses (all at the expense of share holders) between themselves and accountability IMO

  182. GoldFishin says

    @Louis- I think we agree on a couple of points(see above post), I would pay absolutely ZERO attention to whether or not the Mint has placed the MOD set as OOS, Sold Out or Backordered. Recent history has shown not only are they not timely or even erroneous with these indications, but sometimes completely ignore them and offer more supply once an offering has been listed as Sold Out.

  183. cagcrisp says

    @SilverFan, I got my order in Before the BO was shown so I don’t think I would have any problem getting my coins during the initial shipments…
    I have strict criteria for what I do. Not having an OOS 8 hours after Initial sales started was a criteria that was not met. I understand what Louis and GoldFishin are saying. I just think the Mint will put up an OOS before they hit the 75,000 mark…
    I was going to give these away anyway so it wasn’t a big deal to me one way or the other…

    Good luck to those that have purchased them…

  184. Dave SW FL says

    Thanks for your efforts, Louis. Hope your connections can shed some light on the subject at hand.
    I guess I am just an old fashioned fool, as I was raised to expect only the best from our public servants and to always do the right thing and and give my best as a public servant (which I am proud to say I did for 33 years.) We do live in different times. I was lucky to grow up In the 50s!

  185. says

    FM – while I’m flattered, no it wasn’t KCSO.., I’m just catching up on all the fun you guys had this afternoon; besides, I really couldn’t bring myself to spend $61 on two dimes that I don’t collect and a $1 Comm that’ll be had at auction a year from now for $30+. Though with that said, I did over pay too much for two HR Kooks today, go figure, so as we say, ” buy what you like. ”

    GF – “….don’t shoot the messenger” – ah man, you always have this stuff figured out! 🙂

    A couple of week ago, someone asked if anyone has experienced $1 BHoFs in PCGS coffins tarnishing? The answer is “Yes” – it’s a light tan/orangie tarnish that has developed on the Observe predominately starting on the outter rim at the 7-8 o’clock position and lighter inward. It looks like crap and I’m F’n p’ed as these were my graded ones that were perfect. Needless to say, I stopped collecting any moderns slabbed, to include P Pucks, and it’s OGP for me from here on out.

    Is it 2016 yet???? Good luck collectors!

  186. Louis says

    @Dave SW FL- Thanks. I know what you mean and when I worked for the gubamint at a couple different agencies almost everyone was top notch except some of the managers who were in way over their heads or had no idea how to deal with people. I guess my point was I tend to see the same flaws of human nature in all walks of life and that hear so much criticism of feds all the time that fails to recognize 1.) all the incredibly dedicated federal folks many of whom risk their lives every day 2.) that the private sector has more than its share of problems Okay, back to coins………All this typing has aggravated my carpal tunnel, so I will stop hogging the blog.

  187. cagcrisp says

    @Keep Calm & Stack On, Good to see that you are still reading the Blogs. Hope you had a chance to get some of the bullion Turkey pucks. I got 4 tubes in today for some Turkey hunter friends. All look good to me, however, these are my first so I really don’t have anything to compare them to…

  188. GoldFishin says

    @KCSO- Awesome to hear from you! I could have saved you some money on the Kooks. You could get them a couple of hours ago on Ebay for much less and free shipping on the 1 oz coin. Gone now…but they were still too rich for me.
    I remember the discussion we had here about PCGS holdered gold coins tarnishing. I have concluded I will only buy NGC holdered gold coins or keep them in OGP. I have been lucky so far with my PCGS gold coins. I had a few classics that have darkened quite a bit since I bought them, but at least they aren’t hunting vest orange.
    Hope the new job is going great and thanks for checking in. It has been somewhat slow around here without all the extra chatter! 😉

  189. Jeff says

    It looks like the helpful folks at the fulfillment center are still not clear what the various tags actually do as far as letting orders be processed.
    After several weeks of not being able to order the 3 coin Marshals set,it is available to be ordered (on back order) with 251 still available based on last week’s sales figures, but the Silver proof dollar is ‘Currently Unavailable’ (more may be available at a later date) with in excess of 370,000 remaining silver dollars (across all options) remaining as authorized.
    Who makes these decisions?

  190. fmtransmitter says

    KCSO: Shoot an email to them and tell them your issue. They want to keep you and may beholder and fix for you with preservation. Not sure but I have heard this many times and my prized coins are in NGC and any older, like way older pcgs are with as much patina as they started with. Great hearing from you. Buy the stabbed dimes six months from now. Great job on hr kooks. Say hi once in awhile.

    Salivate Metals is the man! Gotta love that enthusiasm!

    GF- Talisman has the 1 oz kooks for $70 and I am getting the 5 oz from Downies for issue price (about $330) and free shipping. Were they cheaper than that on eBay earlier?

  193. fmtransmitter says

    BTW, Royal Mint agreed to send me a new butter box that was crushed in shipping free of charge so kudos for standing behind your product. Was assured packing would be done right to avoid same mistake.

  194. fmtransmitter says

    I just watched his latest video about them Louis. He wasn’t able to mention those prices. AUDirect was $440.

  195. fmtransmitter says

    I always get my kooks slabbed a few months later for my registry set for about same price.

  196. GoldFishin says

    @Louis- with shipping same price on 1 oz, Kook(same seller) , the Downies price on the 5 oz is cheaper. I was comparing the 5 oz price to DirectCoins, which was quite a bit more expensive, even with the AUD/USD conversion. Nice buys on both for you…still too rich for me on the 5 oz, but I did purchase a 1 oz Piedfort.

  197. merryxmasmrscrooge says

    Now saving for the gold Jackie Onassis coin, hope gold is down then.

  198. CasualCollector says

    @GoldFishin
    Interesting guess as to product sold and amount left when the “Backorder” sign went up.

    I had a spreadsheet of order numbers (but I am guessing 2/order only because I feel alot more eople order one at a time — just a hunch).

    My guesses were close to yours.

    1) about 25k – 30k on hand ready to ship
    2) when the “Backorder” sign came up, I think they had about 40k to 45k left to sell
    3) based on slow-down of ordering (my friend placed an order late last night and told me his order number), I think they still have about 15k – 20K left to “Backorder” (just a guess)

  199. thePhelps says

    I suggested yesterday they would have about 50k on hand to sell. I still think that is probably close. I think many early buyers would have been in for the max number – prior to the BO. Compared to many of the recent offerings – this had a very manageable price to max out your purchase if you are looking to resell – which it appears many had plans on doing. Personally – I only wanted a couple of sets – which is what I ordered.

    – Ordered 1st MOD set @ 12:38 EDT and 2nd set @ 1:22 EDT. Set 1 is “backordered,” Set 2 is “processing.” I must have these two dimes to rub together for my Roosevelt Dimes collection.

    – By year’s end, I predict that anyone who wants these special dimes will be able to buy them directly from the Mint because it will include them in products such as the “2015 Limited Edition Silver Proof Set” and who knows what other combos. It would not be the first time the Mint pulls such a stunt without full disclosure at the start.

    – KCSO: Good to see you. Glad you’re still around. Sorry to hear about the bhof tarnish. I’llck mine at the vault next time I visit, but they’re all in NGC holders or raw.

    – What will the market do with the growing pile of unwanted MOD silver dollars that aren’t sold for melt prices?

  201. Larry says

    @ Clark, directly from the mint’s website ” These coins are only available in this special silver coin set commemorating the 75th anniversary of the March of Dimes”. So unless the mint is making a boldface lie, this will be the only way to get these dimes from the mint.

  202. Blair J. Tobler says

    Stuart Bradley – Thanks for the heads up. That certainly works better for my budget than all of them coming out in December as was previously reported.

    “We’re going to determine how many we’re going to get for our customers,” he said. “I try not to get too carried away with getting too many because I want the collector to get their hands on it as well. It’s better if everyone gets one instead of one person getting 100.”

    With a household limit of five sets, Crane said that L&C Coins will do their best to have a supply of them as well.

    “We’ll have to buy many on the secondary market,” he said. “We’ll have to at the end of the day.”

    man – has anyone seen the boatload of Looney Tunes Coins released overnight? I’m surprised that they didn’t extend their Superman line? I think will TUNE this series out.

  205. Clark says

    @ Larry–The operative word here is “SET” and the Mint is very practiced in the art of playing SET limits against mintage limits for marketing purposes. We know there is a firm mintage limit of 500,000 MOD silver dollars. We do not know if any mintage limit exists for P and W dimes.

    The Mint’s product description for the DM5 MOD set states, “Only U.S. Mint SET in 2015 to include a reverse proof silver dime from Philadelphia and proof silver dime from West Point, along with March of Dimes proof silver dollar.” This statement gives the Mint flexibility to create any SETS that do not contain these three particular coins. It’s already produced different MOD SETS so far: two containing just the MOD dollar (DM1 and DM2) and now this 3 coin set (DM5). I wonder what DM3 and DM4 will be?

    For example, later this year it could sell a SET of just the P and W dimes, the P and/or W dimes in combination with other coins that are not the MOD silver dollar, etc. The 2015 Limited Edition Silver Proof Set seems like a good candidate.

  206. Micro says

    I agree with Larry that the wording in the description explicitly limits the dimes to only this set. If the mint subsequently makes them available in any other form they will be liars. Not that that will necessarily restrain them.

  207. Louis says

    JagFan- I agree on the Tunes. Did you see the one for 50K? Dollars, that is! But there is one new RCM product I like, the new bald eagle fractional 4-coin set in a box. Only $150 delivered from Gatewest and they say they are in stock.

  208. Broadwing says

    I liked the comment about the sets versus total mintage for these dimes. Realistically I can’t see the mint holding this mintage at 75,000 coins for each dime., when they can make more money off the collector. Heck they have been sucking us out of money for years.

    I don’t collect for a profit but it would be nice to get back what I paid when the time comes to cash in my collection. Unfortunately very few of my modern coins and sets will pan out.

    The commemoratives especially have been losing value. For awhile I got one proof/unc of each yearly issue sine the Buffalo Dollar came out, all silver issues and clad 50 cent pieces also. Now I only buy it if I really like it. The designs lately are not very motivating since the BBHOF coins. The U.S. Marshall coins are okay but the MOD is a real dog in my humble opinion just like the Civil Rights coin was.

  209. Louis says

    Phelps- It is a nice design and about 2 oz of proof silver and mintage of 7500. Not bad overall. And it comes in a nice wooden box.

  210. SteveF says

    The description tab makes it very clear:

    “For the first time, the U.S. Mint will issue both a reverse proof silver dime from Philadelphia and a proof silver dime from West Point. These coins are only available in this special silver coin set commemorating the 75th anniversary of the March of Dimes. The set also includes a 2015 March of Dimes Proof Silver Dollar.”

    There’s no room in this statement for the coins to appear elsewhere.

  211. Dave SW FL says

    I would hope that the decision making team at the mint would consider how many customers they would permanently lose if they sell these dimes in any other way which takes the mintage beyond the limits set up in the MOD set?

    I will state right now that I will NEVER buy another numismatic product made by the U.S. Mint if they pull those kind of shenanigans !! The DC store sales have me on the fence as it is.

    When you lose faith in the government, the results are not pretty. At this point in ti,,e every agency should be trying harder than ever to maintain the respect of the American citizen.

    I’m getting off my soapbox now.

  212. Dave SW FL says

    There are certain words which seem to automatically put your comments up for moder a ti on!

  213. SteveF says

    @Dave SW FL, was that for me? possibly something to do with my e-mail address?

  214. fmtransmitter says

    Thanks Louis! You need a YouTube channel so we can see some of your coins in real life. I feel that is lacking for this hobby. Real pictures/video really helps other’s decide if they want or not if you have to buy online and cannot travel as in your case and many others I assume…

  215. Mammoth says

    Ordered mine this morning.
    Estimated delivery date: Aug. 14

    I don’t mind the wait, since these two dimes will be a rarity for the Roosie series.

  216. Dave SW FL says

    Steve F
    No, just sayin every time I mention the word ” gubbermint” , my post goes under moderation.

  217. ray says

  218. Christopher Williams says

    I brought my laptop to work to order these coins and ordered from my car in the parking lot. I assumed I would have a difficult time logging on to order the March Of Dimes 3-Coin Set, but I had no issues at all.

    I received my coins on May 7th.

  219. Cochisz says

    recieved my two sets of March of dimes coins in the mail today,much earlier than they told me on the web site. They told me to expect delivery on the 20th of August got them today. 06/20/15
