BEST SHIPPING OPTIONS
Depending on the size and time sensitivity of your shipment, Eurosender offers several options to choose from.
If you are interested in sending a single coin by courier that is not of great value, you should first make sure the coin is properly protected.
Follow these guidelines when mailing multiple coins together:
As stamp collections are usually stored in special stockbooks or stamp albums, we have prepared packaging tips for shipping a postage stamps album in a box:
If you are shipping a stamp as it is without any commercial value and without special coverage and outside of the album, you can book the envelope service. It is the fastest option for sending postage stamps internationally. Depending on the selected route and time of booking, the delivery can take 24-72h. You can contact our managers if you need a same-day collection.
Many would try and send the coins inside the package, among other personal belongings, such as clothes. As the EU is a trade free zone, there is a chance the item will not be discovered inside the package, and your shipment may arrive safely to its destination. However, when shipping outside of the EU, the box must go through customs; thus, scanners. The customs officers may discover the coins and confiscate the shipment. Bear in mind that if you do decide to send collectable coins by courier, you are doing it solely at your responsibility.
If the coins you are shipping are only for collectable purposes, you can describe your package as containing numismatic collectables.
Unfortunately, as coins and valuable stamps are included in the list of restricted and prohibited items of most courier companies, insurance is not applicable in case of damage or loss. Therefore, we strongly suggest paying extra attention when packing coins for shipping overseas and to always opt for traceable shipping services.
Take into consideration these guidelines when shipping coins and stamps domestically and internationally. Nevertheless, please consider that following them does not guarantee that the courier company will transport your package without restriction. In case you decide to ship stamps or coins abroad by courier, Eurosender will not be held responsible for any damages caused by the transportation of your shipment.
