Do you want to help put more dollar coins in circulation? You can help! And it won’t cost you a dime — er — dollar more than you’d typically spend!
The United States Mint direct ship program lets you order $250 boxes of dollar coins without having to pay shipping fees.
The U.S. Mint’s direct ship dollar coin program brings a 10 rolls of 25 $1 coins in uncirculated condition.
Because the initiative is designed to get dollar coins in circulation, you aren’t supposed to deposit these coins directly into your bank upon receiving them, and they really shouldn’t be put into your coin collection, either.
However, if you’re interested in making a difference and don’t mind spending dollar coins, the U.S. Mint wants you to chip in on helping to make the dollar coin a real success story!
My love for coins began when I was 11 years old. I primarily collect and study U.S. coins produced during the 20th century. I'm a member of the American Numismatic Association (ANA) and the Numismatic Literary Guild (NLG) and have won multiple awards from the NLG for my work as a coin journalist. I'm also the editor at CDN Publishing (a trusted source for the price of U.S. rare coins), editor at the Florida United Numismatists Club (FUN Topics magazine), and author of Images of America: The United States Mint in Philadelphia (a book that explores the colorful history of the Philadelphia Mint). I've contributed hundreds of articles for various coin publications including COINage, The Numismatist, Numismatic News, Coin Dealer Newsletter, Coin Values, and CoinWeek. I've also authored nearly 1,000 articles here at The Fun Times Guide to Coins — and I welcome your coin questions in the comments below!
