Same here. Ordered 2 "No problem" coins. Honestly, not expecting much based on the illustration.....too soft and mushy.

Order 3 of each today. No problem carting, but checkout took a number of iterations.

That's an understatement!
I also got 3 of each (I think), but the checkout process took forever; so many retrys. I never did get an on-screen confirmation of successful checkout, but I did get a "We've received your U.S. Mint order" email and an order number. So I'm optimistic.

What a pathetic, dismal failure of an online ordering system.

When in doubt... don't.

Tried getting 3, but lots of website problems during checkout. Eventually my cart went empty and I got a text saying I'd receive updates, but no order confirmation. Didn't dare try to order again in case I'd accidentally duplicate the order and get them all cancelled, so I ordered the Morgans, which I eventually got. Doubtful on the Peace dollars, but that's what duplicates of the other coins are for. Both are unavailable now. Maybe after today the mint can fix their order status check, since that hasn't worked in a very long time.

Got 3 and 3 but took nine attempts. Kept getting the "page not found" which is ridiculous considering they went to so much trouble to fix these kind of issues. Anyway, I'm not counting my reptiles before they hatch. We'll see what shows up Oct/Nov.

I had to submit the order twice before it went through this time which is annoying but better than some past experiences where it just seized up and dropped my session. At least the 'reminder' text message went out a half hour before they went on sale instead of four hours after, which used to be the norm.

As John said, checkout was a dumpster fire. I was trying to purchase on an iPad as I am in Myrtle Beach for my son's baseball tournament. Got 3 of each in my cart, but couldn't check out. Then the website blocked me out saying thatbI was using a bot (I wasn't). Switched to my phone and after a couple of tries, checked out. Got my email confirmation with a bonus... the mint actually charged my credit card for the full purchase amount.
I swear, someday I will learn how to grade Peace Dollars!

I had the six in my cart on my desktop. Kept getting page errors on the finalization, where I put my text cell number. So I ordered the same 6 on my phone and checked out. Took a few times but it took. My desktop cart went to zero and I got the order confirmation email.

They turn off Order History during these times. It came back on and the order is there with the appropriate PROCESSING status. It should go to BACKORDER soon enough.

LOL. Have seen most of todays bidding up to about double cost and fixed asking prices fairly restrained around that for medians. Had not looked too closely back to the earlier ones. I think it is foolish to list them on eBay in auction. It is one thing to back order at the Mint. eBay buyers are less keen about waiting until October or November, particularly with how buyer protection works there.

It's what you get from the bottom of a bad bottle of wine -- kind of a beat-up, musty, in the bag, but shiny feeling.

Well, I got nuthin'. Spent 20 minutes online and had them in the cart but couldn't check out. After 20 minutes I threw my hands up and said F'it and walked away. Not the end of the world, at least that is what I keep telling myself :oops:

Update 1: Well, after my initial post above, my wife tells me there is a $187 charge on our CC from the US Mint. I signed in to the Mint site and see an order from today as 'processing", but still can't tell which one. Still haven't got an email from the mint. I can't tell which one actually went thru, maybe, kinda, sort a. Complete surprise I guess.

Update 2: Looks like the two Morgan P's went thru somehow.
