The Perth Mint Online Shop is the official online store of Australia's Perth Mint. It sells bullion and numismatic gold coins (including historic coins and replicas of historic coins), silver coins, base metal coins as well as gifts and jewelry. Many of the coins that the Perth Mint issues have a certain theme and are highly collectible. For bullion coins, the Perth Mint is famous for its Australian Kangaroo and Australian Lunar gold coins. The Perth Mint Online Shop delivers worldwide and even offers free shipping for orders of numismatic products over 400 Australian Dollars.
All products in the Perth Mint Online Shop are priced in Australian Dollars (AUD). International customers will be debited in AUD using the current exchange rate. Whereas the Australian Goods & Services Tax (GST) will be charged for all orders within Australia, international orders are GST free. International customers may however have to pay customs duties or foreign taxes depending on where they live.
Orders can be securely placed online 24/7. The Perth Mint Online Shop uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to encrypt data transmission and the secure EFTPOS network for all credit card transactions. After placing their order online, customers will receive a confirmation email.
International customers can pay for their purchases by credit card (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Diners Club), PayPal or bank transfer. Australian customers can additionally pay by cheque, money order and BPAY. Full payment must be received within 3 working days. Credit cards will be validated by having a debit of AUD 1 pre-authorised when adding or updating credit card information. The full order amount will be debited from the credit card within 24 hours after ordering. The AUD 1 pre-authorisation will automatically be reversed by the credit card provider within 2 - 5 business days.
The Perth Mint Shop offers free worldwide shipping for online orders of numismatic products (NOT for bullion orders) over 400 Australian Dollars. The shipping costs for bullion orders will be confirmed during the checkout process. International orders are generally dispatched via FedEx and cannot be sent to unmanned delivery points such as PO Boxes (but within Australia such orders are possible under AUD 1,000). Orders from Europe and/or the Middle East for more than 2,500 Australian Dollars can only be delivered to a business address. A secure carrier must be used for orders exceeding 30,000 Australian Dollars. Customers will be emailed all neccessary tracking information on the day that their order has been dispatched. A signature is required upon delivery.
The Perth Mint Shop offers refunds within 30 days of the purchase date to customers that are not completely satisfied or that have received damaged or the wrong goods. Before returning any goods, customers must contact the Perth Mint Shop to obtain approval to do so.
