Coins UK Orders
Orders can be placed either online through the website or by telephone on the number provided on our contact page. Sales or buying offer prices will be fixed at the time of order placing and can not be altered thereafter, due to the fluctuating nature of precious metals prices.
All orders must be paid in advance unless a deposit and payment schedule has been agreed in advance. Collection can be made by pre-arranged appointment with proof of identification.
We do not keep most items on site, other than certain items that have been pre-ordered, or already sold awaiting shipping. It is therefore not possible to collect any goods other than those already pre-ordered, reserved and packaged for collection.
Cancellation and Returns
The right to cancel under Regulation 13 of the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 does not apply because the price of all goods that we sell is dependent upon fluctuations in the financial markets that are beyond our control. This cancellation policy is applicable for in all pre-ordered order items. In special circumstances we can discuss cancellation of orders if you contact us as soon as possible. We believe in good old fashioned fair trade and word of trust – if you place an order and lock a price, we will honour that price. If you subsequently do not complete and settle your order, you may be black-listed from future trade. We will always aim to settle transactions in a fair and reasonable way.
We are always happy to provide you with a refund or exchange in line with your rights as a consumer. Any queries with your products received must be reported to us as soon as possible, on the same day of receipt, or within 24hours. However, if we feel that the coins do meet the standard and description/s as described, then we will be unable to provide a refund for the cost of any return postage. If we agree that a product is below standard we will provide an exchange if available, or refund, however the products must be returned in a timely manner and in the original condition and packaging in which they were supplied.

We do authenticate, photograph and log every item prior to placing them onto the web site for sale. All items are then assigned a tracking reference, placed into secure storage and once sold, will be double checked for the correct weight, grade and metal type/content. All itmes are double checked prior to despatch, packages are weighed, photograped and sent by insured, tracked courier or SD postage. We reserve the right to cancel orders in the event of any un-forseen circumsatnces, although this is very rare, if we do need to cancel an order, we will always return the full funds paid.
