I was one of those who had multiple errors: 20 minutes of gateway errors and "Page not found" when confirming order, but it eventually went through for 2 of each. Have the order confirmation and CC showed initial charge but no confirmation email. Given the number of problems I had, hope it delivers!

I also had 20 min of aggravation, having to go through the checkout process at least 10 times before I finally received an order confirmation.

I got 3 of each and have been offered 3 more of each at $105 a piece. So I'll have a bit of inventory on them which is nice.

I would need to sell for more than a $20 each over retail; I'm assuming you have walk-ins that just want that smooth Jackson for 5 minutes of their time and a few mouse clicks.

Seems like just about everyone was able to get what they wanted which is always good. IMO, the main difference why everyone was able to get them this time was the change from 10 to 3 on the HHL and not the site improvements. Still got the same multiple errors with multiple attempts. The Peace and two coin set are gonna be a crapshoot.

I agree on all points.

Yes, the infiitypost, I received a confirmation email and it still shows processing on the Mint's Order page. I have not been having the problems others have over the last three or four must have releases but today I did. Multiple error codes when I did the final confirmation button. Finally picked up three of each at 12:16 just before they sold out. Hoping to swap out.

I know a lot of people are complaining but a lot of us got the coin. Take as a fact of life the US Mint site will always have issues. Suck it up and deal with it. We all hate the mint as either the products are too expensive, the web site is super buggy and when ever there is a must have item the website will crush under the demand. It's all part of the process, you should at least be happy you didn't have to captcha them boats, bikes and hills like last time. Of the 4 must have items (2019 ,S-ERP, 2020 V75 ASE, Morgan CC and O and Morgan S and D,) I was able to get without paying the aftermarket premium. I know what to expect and I always go in with the assumption I won't get it and I'm happy when I do. Like a famous poster once said:

"Suck it up buttercup"

I got a "Click and Hold" button to prove I was a human... first time I've ever seen that.

I got both confirmation emails from the Mint. I bought the S's first, which went fast, and the confirmation came by 3pm. I bought the D's second which took resubmitting about a dozen times before going through. Order # was about 100k different than the first one. Confirmation email came overnight.

I did too. The funny thing is that it didn't work twice. I just got sent back to the login page. The third time it must have been satisfied that I'm human because there was no click and hold button.

Sorry, I could not disagree more. I was able to get both coins, for that I am happy. I do not accept that we should accept that the mint website will be terrible. How many times and how much money have they spent telling us that it will be better? It can and should be fixed.

We should all expect a checkout process that does not include all the errors we have become accustomed to. If the mint cannot solve their issues, they need to change the way they market and sell their product.

Having purchased the O, CC, D & S, I will be very upset if I am not able to get a P and Peace next week.

On a separate note, did we ever learn why they are selling these months before they are available to ship? What is the difference between doing it now vs. doing it in October and actually fulfilling the order?

But you got your coins and the system worked, so why are you upset?

And honesty there are only 180K of the Peace and 167,500 of the P Morgan, if you don't get them you didn't get them, its not like your life will end. Look yes its a shiny metal disk, I would be "Dang, have to pay extra, or I'll trade one of my duplicates". There is no guarantees that any of us will get the coins, there is more demand than coins, some of us will lose out.

For me, yes it was frustrating but I ended up getting my orders. So in the end all is good.

How can the mint fix this, its easy, mint to demand, BUT then there is no upside. Why would anyone try to buy these if there is exactly as many as people wanted. The cost would never rise and these would be like the majority of mint products a losing proposition.

These products cause the website issues exactly because there are more people wanting them then available. Its actually good because there is an upside.

As to whether the mint cares about the "average" consumer, that has been established LONG ago that we don't really matter. The mint would rather sell to the large dealers and let them sell to us. Its much cheaper selling 20K Peace dollars to the 20 large dealers they use rather than 180K to the "average" consumer. I used to work for a EVP that said to me:

"Don't complain and expect change, because the change won't make your life any better, it will make person who had to hear the complaint life's better"

You want a better website process. OK, we'll sell to the large dealers you buy from them, we have no more website issues, the US mint website is now fixed.

These Morgan's are the first time I've ordered from the mint in at least 40 years. Is it unusual for the mint to take orders now then ship months later?
I remember what seemed like an eternity for my brown box Ike's to come but I was a young impatient teen then. Now I'm a young impatient 60 some year old.
My biggest bad experience with the mint was getting a letter that the CC dollar I thought I bought from GSA sales wouldn't be coming because my offer wasn't enough.
