MINT PUBLISHES RULE CLARIFICATION FOLLOWING WSJ'S ARTICLE ON COIN SCAM

Following last week's Wall Street Journal article highlighting an frequent-flyer miles scam involving postage-free purchases of coins, the U.S. Mint published an email with this notice about the program. -Editor

Native American Dollar Mint announcement

Native American $1 Coins have been made available again on the United States Mint's Circulating $1 Coin Direct Ship Web site. These circulation-grade $1 coins are available in boxes of ten 25-coin rolls. There is no charge for shipping and handling.

The intended purpose of the Circulating $1 Coin Direct Ship Program is to make $1 Coins readily available to the public, at no additional cost, so they can be easily introduced into circulation -- particularly by using them for retail transactions, vending, and mass transit. $1 Coins are 100% recyclable, last for decades and save the Nation money. (Please note: The immediate bank deposit of $1 Coins ordered through this Program does not result in their introduction into circulation and, therefore, does not comply with the intended purpose of the Program.) Quantities are limited.

QUIZ QUESTION: where is the DATE on these coins? -Editor
