Security is a top priority at the Austrian Mint and the Internet is no exception. We do our utmost to protect your personal information from being accessed by unauthorized individuals.
Our Online Shop has a VeriSign certificate and with AES-256 it is encrypted to a very high degree with 256 bits. Please make sure that the address bar of your browser starts with https://. Modern browsers show the first part of the address bar in green.
We do not save any credit card information. Credit card payment is done via an interface directly with mPay24 GmbH. For your security, we only use the systems Master Card Secure Code and Verified by VISA for credit card payments. With these security systems the payment is only approved once you have entered one of your passwords, which only you can access. If you are not yet equipped with any of these safe payment methods, please talk to your bank and have the security on your credit card upgraded today.
3-D Secure: Making safe payments on the Internet
In order for payments on the Internet to be as easy and secure as possible, special procedures have been developed called Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode. The collective term for these secure payment methods is 3-D Secure.
Register for a 3-D Secure password for your credit card free of charge and enjoy the utmost security when shopping online!
How 3-D Secure works
When you register your card at no extra cost you choose any 3-D Secure password. Every time you pay online with your credit card, this password will be requested provided the dealer also participates in the 3-D Secure system. This lets you identify yourself beyond a doubt as the proper owner of your credit card because you are the one who knows your password.

By observing just a few simple tips you can easily increase your personal security when ordering over the Internet:
Recently there has been an increase in reports of cases of fraudsters using fake messages (e-mail, Facebook messages, etc.) to ask for money or the payment of outstanding invoices by pretending to be friends, relations, colleagues or superiors of the recipient.
If you receive demands of this nature and the names of the senders sound familiar to you, you should check the authenticity of these mails by contacting these persons via other channels such as by telephone or by text message. The Austrian Mint advises you to exercise extreme caution in such cases as we are unable to replace any losses you may incur.
