Most frequently asked questions when shipping coins abroad

Is it legal to mail coins or send them by courier service?
Most courier companies and Post offices include coins, as well as collectable coins in the list of restricted items to ship. However, many people still decide to send them on a daily basis at their own risk. When opting for mailing coins with national post offices or shipping them by courier, make sure they are properly packed and protected as insurance won’t be valid. Moreover, in case your wish to send the coins between different economic spaces where customs apply, be aware that your package may be inspected and duties may apply.
How to describe my coin package when shipping abroad?

If the coins you are shipping are only for collectable purposes, you can describe your package as containing numismatic collectables.

Does insurance apply when I am shipping coins abroad?

Unfortunately, as coins 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.
