FAQs about Delivery and Shipping

Up-to-date information concerning "post office of your choice":

What does „post office of your choice“ mean?

This option is only relevant for customers in Austria.

Delivery to home address or to the post office of your choice

•            A consignment with an online value of less than €3,000 will be delivered to your home. Optionally, you can also select a post office for collection in the checkout.

•            A consignment with an online value between €3,000 and €10,000 will not be delivered to your home. You will receive a notification at your address from the post office where you can pick up your package (“yellow slip”). Optionally, you can also select a post office for collection in the checkout.

•            For security reasons, a consignment with an online value of more than €10,000 can be picked up at your nearest post office. You can define your nearest post office independently during the online ordering process. This gives you the choice of receiving your parcel at your place of residence or picking it up from a post office, e.g. near your place of work.

•            When selecting a post office of your choice online, you must provide both a telephone number and an e-mail address so that the Post can contact you.

Persons authorised to collect shipments:

•            Shipments with a value of up to €1,500 may also be delivered to/received by a substitute recipient (e.g. a relative, flatmate, etc.), provided there is no doubt as to their eligibility.

•            If the value of the goods exceeds €1,500, the parcel can only be picked up by the named recipient (after verification of identity by means of identification) or an authorised person.

Delivery takes place after the date of issue and receipt of payment in our account. If several coins issued on different dates are ordered at the same time, the entire order is not shipped until the date of issue of the last coin.

Our coins are highly sought after, and demand can often exceed the limited number of coins. Thus to ensure that as many customers as possible get a chance, we can only offer a limited quantity per person and household. 

Once your shipment is consigned to the shipping company, you receive an e-mail containing a link with the tracking number to track your shipment. This information is also shown in the "Order Overview" in your user account. The delivery person leaves a notice if no one is available.

If you have concluded a deposit contract with your postal company / delivery service or have selected an option with "UPS MyChoice" at UPS, each delivery is considered delivered when the package has been deposited at the agreed deposit location. In this case, any liability of the Austrian Mint in case of loss is excluded!
