I thought I read on a different thread that the mint usually holds back a number of coins to fulfill any returns or QC issues. If so I imagine whatever coins were held back would eventually be sold. Any truth to that?
Quote: It's been completely sold out since the first day. The only thing that pops up are orders that had issues and by now it's just ones that had shipping issues and couldn't be delivered. There's nothing left otherwise
I was one of the unlucky people. UPS sent back my coin to the US Mint, because something was missing. Could not stop it, although I called them several times. No re-order or re-send possible although US Mint made a mistake, they just refunded me the money.

Really sorry to hear that. So I wonder what happens to the coin? The only sales after the initial date were for a few days after. Don't believe they've had any since. Don't think your coin would have made it back so soon.
Wyzeguy. Not really. On this with a limited mintage, 30K is all they made and all they can make. They won't be replacing orders if you return it for a QC issue you are getting a refund and that's the end of it. With the unlimited mintage stuff they will replace it. On this if there's an undeliverable issue even they will give a refund and sell it again to someone else, first come first serve once its back in inventory.
If it was an annual mint set I'd say you could return for replacement but not with limited mintage stuff unless they actually have plenty of it.
