The USPS international rates depend on dimensions of the package.

The best way to determine postage costs is to pick a method from below and let us check the weight and dimensions of the package for a cost. There is no real insurance for international shipment of coins/medals or other items with direct monetary value. Insuring coins/medals is nearly useless and Registration often provides no help after it leaves the U.S.however the choice is yours.

Custom forms are required for all packages.

Please contact us for method and cost. We will package extremely well and send it however you specify. We will provide tracking information, but If you do not receive it we shall not responsible and cannot reimburse your loss. There is no insurance for international mail after it leaves the USA, even if registered. The safest method is by Express Mail Insured (usually 2-3 day delivery), for which each country has its own limitations on contents and value. Customs forms are required for all packages. What the forms say is up to you, but the declared value must match the insured or registered value to clear Customs. Dealing with your country’s Customs requirements, taxes and fees is your responsibility. For Express Mail your phone number is required as well as address.
