I ordered another coin from HSN.. Their shipping is horrible. It was supposed to be delivered on the 5th. I called them earlier today and I guess they're delayed until the 30th. Didn't even tell me.

I ordered a clad and silver proof on April 8, knowing (at the time) I wouldn't receive the coins until about June.

Now I see the coins are completely sold out. July 7th and August 14th are the projected delivery dates for my coins.

These are doing VERY WELL on the secondary market, and being a sell out can only help that. Just makes me wish I ordered a few more.

The OGP of the silver proof dollar is already bringing $140+ on the bay (OGP price was $51.95 + shipping).

Is anyone selling the Silver Proof coin? I may be interested in a few depending on price.

Just cancelled my order with HSN. They extended the delivery date again without telling me.

This is what 'Tony'said via chat:

I am so sorry, but we are still working to fulfill your order. The delivery date for it has been extended again, to August 18. This is not common at all for us to take this long to get an order out.

Looks like prices have settled a little bit but almost doubling your money for the proof silver dollar is still nice.

Ordered:

2x UNC clad - Received Wednesday (one for me, one for my dad)
2x Proof clad - Received Wednesday
1x UNC Silver - Backordered
1x Proof Silver- Backordered
1x UNC Gold - Backordered
1x Proof Gold - Backordered

Silver stays with me. Gold gets flipped (I need a new AR-15). Placed my order about 2 hours after the Mint allowed ordering.

FINALLY got the clad proof half dollar in stock and ready to ship.

My silver proof dollar is expected to ship 06/26/2014.

Seeing as how that date has passed, should be in stock and ready to ship soon.

My clad half dollar has not shipped yet (nor have I been charged for it), although it says "In stock and ready to ship".

Also, my other two coins still say expected to Ship on Jun. 25 & 26. Over two weeks ago.

I'll probably be calling the Mint tomorrow.

I'm starting to wonder if I'll even get one, although I'd like to believe they would know by now if I missed out. When did you guys order?

Bought mine on April 8...pretty sure they were announced sold out not long after, but about a month and a half ago a US Mint rep claimed I was probably "safe".

I guess only time will tell.
