That's what I do.  I ordered some mint sets, proof sets and silver proof
sets as well as a couple of medals a couple of weeks ago.  The S&H was
$4.95, still high considering the profit the mint makes on these.  They took
longer than usual to arrive but everything except the mint sets (which are
back ordered) arrived at the same time.

By the way, the mint has some nice medals relating to the bicentennial of
the mint for sale on its website. These are teh ones I bought.  One in
particular has several small images of various coins on it.  It looks really
nice and is silver dollar sized.
