 To Reserve your selection of coins:

Any information you e-mail is insecure and could be observed by a third party while in transit. If you are submitting credit card numbers or other information you would like to keep private, it would be safer to cancel the e-mail submission.

You may fax us the above information at: +1-650 855 9091

Your telephone number is optional - it is very unlikely that we will attempt to call you.

If you have any special requirements, such as special shipping, or you want us to hold the coins  for you to pick up, please clearly inform us in your correspondence.

When we get your order, we'll make sure that all of your coins are available and send you an email within 2 days (except Sundays and holidays) to confirm your order, notify you of the total cost (including shipping and insurance) and get billing information.

We will hold you selection for ten (10) days, until payment is received.



It is advised to wait for our order confirmation before sending payment by check, since we must determine Shipping and Insurance.

We take either:

Credit card numbers (with expiration date and cardholder name) should either be faxed or sent by e-mail.

While you are free to use e-mail, we would not suggest e-mail, due to potential security concerns. If you request it, we will keep your card number on file for future orders.


Shipping & Insurance:

Within the US you have the following choices:

We will quote both unless instructed otherwise on the original order.

We do ship coins out of the United States. Overseas shipping is, of course, expensive. For example a two pound package to Western Europe costs approximately $US 5.00 by boat or $11.00 by Airmail. (Please see International Considerations, below).

When we receive your order we will reserve the coins for you, determine the shipping costs and then contact you. An E-mail address for overseas orders is required, because of the timezone differences.


ALL shipments are sent Insured with a Return Receipt.

We will determine the insurance amount and include this in your order verification.


International Considerations:

An E-mail address for all overseas orders is required, because of the timezone differences.

Some countries prohibit mailing of coins.  All sales are subject to country restrictions.

International orders are, depending on country limitations, sent via Registered mail, not by Insured post.



Any item you are not completly satisfied with, may be returned.  All such items must be received by us within fourteen (14) days of shipment, in the original packaging and by insured post.
