Well, whaddaya know? Apparently the U.S. Mint sells new John Adams dollar coins, in lots of $250 and $500, with free shipping and handling. And they will let you use your credit card so it will show up as a purchase and not a cash advance.
Like free money. Well, not free money, but money “at cost.”
Apparently the Mint is doing this to encourage the circulation of new dollar coins. The coins last longer than bills and so saves printing costs over time. There you go — you can buy fresh minted cash for free and do a civic service (of sorts) at the same time. Good to know.
