evergladesUpdated figures are now available for the United States Mint’s circulating coin production through the month of November 2014. The production totals for the Everglades National Park Quarter have also been provided.

During November, the US Mint produced 958.78 million circulating quality coins at the Philadelphia and Denver Mint facilities. This represented a decline from both the prior month and the year ago period. During October 2014, production had reached 1.17 billion. In November 2013, production was 991.14 million.

    Has the mint reminded ANYONE that the Sac $1 C&C is now available to order?

    I think the reminder button is there only to collect email addresses to add to their list. Don’t ask why they want it – they probably don’t know (but if you call CS, they would be happy to throw a guess up against the wall!)

    J Allen – I was asked to take a survey after my last order. I Gave them 3-6 out of 10 on all questions except ” How likely are you to order from the bUSMint again.” That got a 10, and therein lies the problem for them to be motivated to correct their issues. That and the fact that they have a monopoly, so a who cares attitude goes a long way.

    That said, when I can buy PCGS graded ATB pucks off the Bay for less than I have to pay the mint, maybe I should rethink buying from the mint.

    @GoldFishin, When you nibble on OIL let me know the price you get in at and then IF it drops a penny I will get in, that way I can Outperform you….

  3. Wes says

    Funny how many on here were exited when they found out the Sac coin was different. Now just complaints about how the mint has handled this. As far as I know it is and always has had a product limit of 50,000. Now I would be disappointed if they include the coin in another product. As far as limiting or canceling sales after they were received the mint has maintained the policy that they may do so.

  4. HarryB says

    @Goldfishin: yes FEDEX does prioritize what goes on a truck by revenue generation, my sister in law used to work for FEDEX in Memphis and told me that years ago. Smart post is FEDEX Ground, and they usually have 3-4 day delivery. My last C&C smart post delivery was with the post office 4 days. I live 120 miles from Memphis but the route most often taken per tracking is for FEDEX to send my delivers to Atlanta then transfer to post office for delivery in Alabama.

  5. GoldFishin says

    @HarryB- Cagcrisp is a likeable very smart guy with a wide range of expertise and I am also glad he chooses to share some of his insight here on MNB. The coin offerings are a little slow this time of year, so I guess it gives us some time to briefly explore some other semi-related topics.
    Like you, I also believe that the huge contract the USPS received from Amazon, which includes Sunday delivery, has delayed somewhat the delivery of their priority packages to some areas of the country. I have had several delays now with Priority packages going to the state of Texas. Others areas of the country seem to be running slightly slower than normal but sill ok.

  6. Peter says

    I wonder how many of current offerings will be ordered through the catalog that we all got in mail. Some people still rely on that.

  7. stephen m says

    cagcrisp, The oil went up in the 1970’s, $1.25 a gallon, the first I can remember. Since then it has made major moves south a few times but went back up in price fairly quickly. Long on oil now is good advice. If it drops in price a little more, buy a little more. Will the price stay low and for how long is the question?

  8. cagcrisp says

    @stephen m, In the past when oil dropped it was the Demand side that drove it down. Today oil it is the Lowest in 5 years and then we were in the Great Recession and unemployment was double digit, housing, auto companies, banks and brokerages houses were in need of bailing out. Today this is the Supply side that is driving prices downward. The bottom will be hit when the Saudi’s say it will be hit. How long it will be down will Again be determined by the Saudi’s. There are Trying to hurt Somebody and when they have achieved their goal they will take their foot off the brake…

  9. Bernie in FL says


    You are absolutely Right !!! We totally forget that the Mint is a government agency and therefor the bureaucracy must be astronomical. The darn place reminds me of two new cashiers at 7-11 trying to figure out the cash register and help you at the same time while making $7.25 an hour. What kind of customer service do you expect.

    Seems just about anyone with two neurons in there head could do better than them. OK, enough ranting for a day ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. maddogdday says

    Interestingly, the mint’s pending charge on my credit card for the 15 C&C sets that I ordered on 12/4 has disappeared as of this morning. I’m pretty sure that I’m not getting them if that’s the case and likely due to the new product limit change. I had ordered 10 sets on the 3rd which were shipped and are presently being routed all over the USA according to the Smart Post tracker and the date of delivery has been moved back to 12/15. Just glad I got the 10.

  11. GoldFishin says

    @cagcrisp- WTI couldn’t hold the overnight gains into the open, I will let you know. I read up a lot last night on Saudi related news.. they are getting a lot of heat from multiple sources and I don’t know how much longer they can hold up the strategy to the detriment of their regional and international allies. Considering they are also notorious equity investors, I guess they can keep it up until they purchase all the oil related issues they are after. ๐Ÿ™‚ I am going in with 1/3 positions. Still on the sidelines. Will advise. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I am looking at this kind of like silver, sort of wish it would go lower and stay that way long enough to average in and see some kind of base formed, but in today’s algorithmic world, seems all we get is V bottom recoveries. Hence, the catch an oily bloody falling knife scenario…. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  12. Frankie says

    The US Mint will place a temporary hold on your card whenever you place an order – and irrespective if it’s for items that are in stock, backordered or pre-ordered. The hold will disappear after a maximum of 5 days (credit cards, 3 days for debit cards in my experience).
    These are their business practices.
    Once you see that charge again on your card it’s safe to assume you will receive your order. In the meantime, stay calm & stack on… ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. NC_Stacker says

    “seems all we get is V bottom recoveries”

    Get rid of the Algo’s and it will return.

  14. Bernie in FL says


    LOL !!!

    But they are strangely similar, in that we must now Call to Cancel an Order. Use to have the simple Cancel Button……….

  15. Louis says

    They should have had a household limit from the get go, but as far as I know this is the first it’s being applied retroactively. On 12/4 it was not in effect but it seems they are applying it to those orders. And Smartpost is running 2 weeks now from shipment to receipt at least for me, which is much slower than any other type of shipments in my experience. My 12/2 Everglades shipment is now supposed to arrive on the 16th, and same with two others orders shipped a day or two later. Even UPS ground and USPS media mail are faster than that.

  16. Dave SW FL says

    FedEx needs a map! Follow up on my C&C order shipped 12/4 and made it to Grove City, OH (2 hrs from destination) and sat there 2 days. In their wisdom, they moved it on to Charlotte, NC. Still no ETA. Eight days and counting.

    You just can’t make this stuff up! Is it possible there is a company less efficient than the USPS? I guess so. Interesting carbon fingerprint on this shipment.

    Has the mint reminded ANYONE that the Sac $1 C&C is now available to order?

    Not once has that been fixed yet…IMO, REMOVE the option until it is functioning correctly…

  18. fmtransmitter says

    @Dave SW FL: Only thing I can think of is SOMEONE, who knows, lost a ton of money when the shipping was changed, HOWEVER it was changed and retaliation is the slow shipping we are incurring…Old way was normal time..

  19. Louis says

    And if you think that is bad I have a DHL package from Germany (which is usually ultra-reliable like Germans) and it came here, cleared customs, sat around a few days, and then they sent it back to Germany, where they are now preparing to send it to me again! Maybe second time will be the charm.
    Wake me up when the holidays are over.

  20. Dustyroads says

    OT, but since a few of us have been talking oil, and for good reason, I thought I would bring up the massive 1 billion barrels of production from Eagle Ford in South Texas. I have a tendency to play devils advocate on go against the stream at times, so I can’t help but to consider the possibility that the Saudi’s are not entirely the culprits in this oil slam down we are watching, but are in a reactionary move against an aggressive move born right here in the USA.

    Here’s a story I pulled up on Eagle Ford if you are interested:

  21. Raphael says

    Bottom line for me, is the Mint touted how it’s new web site the was latest and the greatest. But expect for handling the rush of orders when new items are released, not only is it no better then the old site but in many ways less customer friendly. In other words one step forward and two backwards.

  22. Raphael says

    As proof of my comment, I get more information on the mint from this blog, then the mint itself, should be the other way around.

  23. Chuck says

    Talked with the Mint and it sounds as though orders that have been on hold should start shipping around 18 Nov.

    We’ll see.

  24. fmtransmitter says

    @Dustyroads: You will never know the real story by reading ANYTHING online on things of this nature, it’s all behind closed doors IMHO…

  25. CoachMike says

    I sent in the remind me last week and again when it came up the other day for the C & C. I did get an email notification yesterday. But it said the Kennedy clad was back in stock, not the C & C that I requested??????

  26. MarkInFlorida says

    Hey Sith, on the last thread you said:

    Sith says
    DECEMBER 10, 2014 AT 11:06 AM
    @MarkInFlorida โ€“ They stopped sales of the 2014 platinum proof in October.

    But it was just released Oct. 20! How many have been sold?

  27. cagcrisp says

    If you’ve heard the Expression “Not worth a Flip”. I just watched an Auction close with 10 bids for $25.00. Selling a single CC for $25.00 with 13% fees and a couple of bucks shipping cost, initial cost, allocated purchase shipping cost, time and effort listing, time and effort packaging, time, effort and gasoline going to the post office and you end up with less than $5.00 profit for a single sale. Not worth a Flip…

    IF it was me I would pull the $1 dollar bill out. That way you will always have a dollar…

  28. Louis says

    @FM- Thanks, buddy.
    @Chuck- Maybe, but if it they are going back and applying the limit of 5 to orders placed then, a lot of them will be cancelled. It’s a crapshoot basically. But I know I have a few sets on the way and 1 in hand, so it’s alright.

  29. The Real "Cool" Dave says

    Those rogues at the Mint are always sending or “popping” up a survey and asking me to take it; I don’t know why they bother?

    I have actually called them at their official phones (not CS) and I get voice mail and I leave a message, not once have they called me back.

  30. Peter says

    As of right now there is no indication that the mint is canceling orders for the C&C sets purchased on or before 12/4. If they do that then you can call it an unfair practice as the rules cannot be changed retroactively after the sale was completed.

  31. Dustyroads says

    fmt, You’re right, and I don’t put much stock into articles I read, I was more interested in the 1 billion barrels fact. That’s a lot of oil
    A couple years ago I let tomtom give me a shorter route north from where I live into the Texas hill country region for a vacation on the Rio Frio river. Boy was that a mistake, I must have driven on the most desolate road in Texas and dealt with oil trucks and machinery for and hour and a half. It’s has been a boom. I in fact own 50% mineral rights on a large piece of ground which has been tested and confirmed the presence of gas under it, but no drilling yet. It has been profitable over the last decade in that I have been able to receive close to $20,000.00 just to hold the land for an oil co. owner out of Laredo. Maybe in the future I can get some drilling started on it. Anyway, enjoy that clear Florida water.

  32. jj says

    i got a 1946 nickel back in change today. i thought that was cool. just one year away from the wartime silver nickels.

  33. fmtransmitter says

    @Dusty: There has been rumors forever that the GPS were set up to make actually waste more gas by the oil companies, that is funny story. I hope you hit black gold and make millions!

  34. Blair J Tobler says

    jj – it is cool – I got a ’51 dime in change at Dunkin’ Donuts the other day. It’s been a along time since I last found a silver coin in change.

  35. HarryB says

    I ordered 2 more C&C sets, up to my HH limit, 12/10 at 7:30 PM. Shipping notification email just came. Glad I am on leave today so I could post.

  36. paddy says

    The five c&C sets I purchased yesterday Shipped today….This will be interesting….Will post time of receipt.

  37. SilverFan says

    Maybe the sets ordered yesterday and shipped today are returns…lol. You have to love the new IMPROVED ordering system. Go Mint!

  38. Dave SW FL says

    Shipping update
    C&C set in last 5 days went from 2 hrs from destination NE Ohio to PA, to Charlotte, and now back to PA. It’s like watching a ping pong match! Just unbelievable ๐Ÿ™

  39. cagcrisp says

    Those of you that were wanting the CC in a Slabbed 69 you can get what you want on the bay for $74.95. One vendor has Sold 15 of the 29 listed as being Sold. Currently he has 6 or 13 Available for Sale. Under the One BIN that he has, he has 5 available…

    IF you wanted one at $99.95 you have to love one for $74.95. He has Sold as Low at $65.75 as an Auction. Just a minute ago he Sold one for $70.00 at Auction…

  40. Brad says

    Dave SW FL,

    Man, that is just plain crazy. If you had known this would happen, would you have just driven the 2 hours and tried to pick up your package in person?

    I hope by the time your package finally stops at your house, it doesn’t look like it’s been ran over by a truck a few times!

  41. Teach says

    So people who ordered the C&C on the 10th are receiving emails that their order has shipped but people who ordered on the 4th are being placed back into BACKORDER status. Does anyone know what’s going on? Do I need to call the mint or is this a lost cause?

  42. Dustyroads says

    Why on earth are the most recent C&C orders shipping first? Like NC_Stacker’s order on the 4th, mine is now finally in “backorder” status.

    fmt, That would be nice, but I have no idea when or if that will ever happen. There is a very large gas field 4 miles to my north with dozens of wells pumping. If it happens, that would be nice, but I’m prepared to work till I drop.
    You see me telling you to enjoy the water there, I really mean that, we have a beautiful barrier island here that is a tourist attraction connected to the mainland by a causeway. The water here is quite murky due to it’s close proximity to the Rio Grand river, off shore it’s not so bad. The last time I was in Miami we left out on a cruise and I will never get over how beautiful it is there.

  43. Dustyroads says

    My order was actually on the 3rd, and now listed as “backordered” with no ship e-mail. I’m now thinking that the Mint people are having some problems.

  44. Ikaika says

    Just a thought: Could it be possible the US Mint is adjusting the orders of those that ordered more than 5 sets earlier to 5 max? Maybe that is the reason for the delay.

  45. BillB says

    @Harry B., I worked at Fedex for 20 years in a number of fairly high management positions. I can assure you that packages are not given priority by revenue generation; that is not how the system works.

    @DaveSW Florida
    >>You just canโ€™t make this stuff up! Is it possible there is a company less efficient than the USPS? I guess so. Interesting carbon fingerprint on this shipment.<<

    I'm not sure what you are tracking, but I daresay you are misinterpreting it. You can say what you want about Fedex, but I can tell you it is anything but an inefficient company. Comparing it to USPS is a joke.
