If you don't mind me asking, why is it that shipping costs $6 for one coin?

If the shipping didn't cost so much I might be more inclined to purchase one.

I am using Priority Mail Flat Rate mailers - same shipping cost regardless of number of coins.

Most people order more than one coin (and possibly for the very reason you cite - it's not as cost effective to pay that for orders of single coins).

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper or hardware wallets instead.
