Packing Instructions:

Please take the following steps when preparing your shipment to us:

Remove all references to gold and silver bullion on the exterior of the package. This includes your business name (if applicable) and product names and descriptions. This is an effective theft prevention measure.

Double box using cardboard boxes. Place one box inside of another. This will help protect your shipment should the outer box fail.

Pack your items tightly with solid materials like foam, newspaper or bubble wrap. Packing material such as peanuts easily compress leaving room for items to shift and cause the packing to fail.

Secure the lids of all coin tubes by placing a strip of tape across the lids to ensure that they do not come loose during shipping.

Tape all box seams with heavy duty strapping tape. The most likely place for packaging to fail is at the seams. Use a good quality tape containing nylon fibers or similar durable tape and ensure all seams are taped securely.

For heavy packages (over 30lbs), reinforce the box by taping over the entire surface with strapping or brown tape.

Use clear tape over your shipping label. Clear taping the shipping label reduces the chances that the label is damaged or marred. Damaged labels lead to delayed shipments.
