Shipping costs include the amount charged by the carrier to Lion Coins, plus the cost of sufficient packing materials to ensure safe transit.
All sales will incur shipping charges. All shipping charges are for the account of the buyer, and must be pre-paid. Shipping costs are variable, and will be quoted prior to any sale. Any item, (or items) totalling UK£25, or over (not including any shipping or other ancillary charges), will be sent free of shipping charges if the shipping charges do not exceed 5% of the final price of the goods. If the shipping charge does exceed 5% of the final price of the goods, then that part of the shipping charge which is in excess of 5% of the final price of the goods will be charged to the purchaser. As a general rule, most heavy items will incur some excess shipping costs. This includes most books, and cased coins, and also multiple items of low cost coins.
Cheques, banknotes and other paper items will normally be sent post free
to U.K. residents, where the final purchase cost of the items exceeds UK£15.00.
For residents of the rest of the world the final cost of the purchased items
must exceed UK£20.00. Where the final cost
exceed £15 (UK) or £20 (RoW) there will be a shipping charge of £0.90 (Small
items) or £1.20 (Large items) within U.K. or £1.50 for the rest of the World
As with most things certain restrictions apply, but we aim to give a service which is fair to all.
We endeavour to send out all items by the day following payment, and use first class post, (Air Mail for international shipments). If we need to use a second class service, this will probably be to reduce your costs, and your agreement will be sought before despatch.
