The United States Mint is launching a new retail solution for selling its numismatic coin and medal products.
The changes will affect shipments and orders during the period from Sept. 12 to Oct. 1, according to the Mint. No orders will be shipped from Sept. 24 to 30.
The Mint press release about the new system follows:

Sept. 19 — last day to place expedited orders; all orders placed after this date will ship Oct. 1.
Sept. 23 — last day orders will ship until Oct. 1.
