I got the same email for my order. I called the Mint and was told that my order had already been processed and that I would soon be receiving a tracking number via email.

When I asked why I received the email, I was told that it was just a confirmation notice so that I would call and confirm the order due to the time delay. If that's true, it seems like the Mint could send a more appropriately worded email than one indicating that the order couldn't be processed and could be cancelled. I'm not convinced that was the reason - could be a glitch in the system.

BTW, The Mint web site shows my order as "Processing."

Just received another US Mint email...As I thought, the cancellation email from this morning was sent in error - a system glitch.

All should be fine for those that have ordered the coin and medal sets.

My five Coin and Medal sets arrived today - they all look great!

I like the Mint's decision to use the standard silver dollar planchets for the medals vs. the larger one-ounce ASE planchets - it makes for nicely-matched sets.

The packaging, as expected, is rather plain (the standard clamshell cases used for other two-coin commemorative sets) but it works.

I'm glad I ordered one of each set. Yes, I now have more WWI Centennial proof SDs than I need, but it's a small trade-off in the grand scheme of things.

I can't post pictures this evening...maybe tomorrow. Just wanted to post that the sets are being delivered!

Would have made for a nice five medal and dollar set, too.

I am starting to regret not doing it myself.

Although it was apparently a mistake, it looks like the Mint's email requesting folks confirm their orders resulted in a wave of cancellations. The production report for this week indicated a -2,900 (-4.8%) drop in the total medals ordered. Total medals ordered have now dropped about -8.1% from the peak number that were ordered (62,660 at the peak, and now stands at 57,606).

I only got the Coast Guard medal since I liked the design. Looks great in person.
