We reserve the right to refuse to supply products to any individual or company.

Your 14 Day Statutory Cancellation Rights

If you have changed your mind, you can cancel your order up to 14 days after the day on which you (or someone you nominate) receives the products, or, if you have ordered multiple products or lots/pieces (other than a regular delivery for products), 14 days after the day on which you receive the last of the products. If your products are for regular delivery over a set period you have until 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the first delivery of the products.

Our 14 Days No-Questions-Asked Returns Policy

In addition to your statutory rights, we provide a “no questions asked” returns policy which allows you to return any products (except personalized items), providing they are returned within 14 days of receipt, along with the invoice and in original condition. Please return your products to British Numismatic Treasury, Communication Centre, Par Moor Road, Par, PL24 2SQ. We will refund you the cost of the coin or commemorative using the same method of payment that you originally used. We are unable to refund your return postage cost to us except in the event that an item is faulty or was sent to you in error. It is strongly recommended that you obtain and retain proof of posting for all returned items (provided free of charge by the Post Office).

To exercise the right to cancel: you must inform us of your decision to cancel this contract by a clear statement (such as a letter or postcard sent by post, or email).

You will not have a right to cancel where the products have been made to your specification or personalised or you purchased bullion products at market prices which are subject to constant price variations.

Following receipt of your notice to cancel the contract, we will make reimbursements under this contract for payments received from you, including any delivery charges, as soon as we can. If you are exercising your right to change your mind in the 14 day cancellation period then your refund will be made within 14 days from the day on which we receive the products back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the products back to us. We will credit your account unless you instruct us to reimburse you using the same means of payment you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise. We will not charge you any fees for reimbursement.

The amount of your refund may be reduced if:

  • any products returned to us have been used or damaged, we may deduct an amount equal to the loss in value of the products, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. In some cases, the amount deducted may be equal to the full price of the products;
  • we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the products and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount; and
  • you selected a method of delivery other than standard delivery, and this cost more than the standard delivery, we will not reimburse the additional sum we charged you for this method of delivery.

We will not normally deduct any sums for damage caused to the outer layer of packaging where it was necessary for you to open the packaging in order to check the products.

In the event that a product is returned outside of the 14 day returns period because you have changed your mind, we reserve the right to refuse acceptance or, at our discretion, charge you a re-stocking fee of no more than 20 % of the purchase value (and deduct this from your refund). Furthermore, you will need to pay the cost of the return of the product(s) unless the product was faulty or misdescribed.

Prices & Payment

All our prices will be in GBP and as quoted on our website or as advertised from time to time, except in cases of obvious error. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could reasonably have been recognized by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any products provided to you. All prices include VAT (if applicable and at the then current rate) but exclude delivery costs, which will be added to the total amount due. Delivery costs shall be as quoted on our website or advertisements (whichever is applicable).

Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders for any products for which we have already sent you a dispatch confirmation.

Data Protection

Your customer details will remain confidential.

We will use the information you provide to us:

  • to supply the products to you;
  • to process your payment for the products; and
  • if you agreed to this during the order process, to inform you about similar products that we provide, but you may stop receiving this information at any time by contacting us.

You can update your information at any time by contacting us.
