How Do I Safely Send Coins for Auction

The following is our best advice for how to pack and ship your coins to GoodLife Auctions.

Answer: Registered Mail

U.S. Postal Service Registered Mail is one of the most secure methods of shipping your coins. A Registered mail package has a "chain of custody" that means every postal employee that handles, or even touches the package is liable for it's safe delivery. With this service you can purchase up to $25,000 worth of insurance. As with any form of shipping there are a few guidelines we recommend you follow.

The following is a step-by-step guide to sending coins to us by Registered Mail.

  • Securely pack your coins inside a corrugated cardboard box. Make sure your coins cannot move around. Remember that the package can encounter very rough treatment during shipping. The more packaging material between the coins and box the better.
  • Place this box inside of another corrugated cardboard box. Use plenty of packaging material (bubble wrap, packing peanuts). You want the box to be completely surrounded by the packing material you use and not move around.
  • Per U.S. Postal Service you must cover every seam on the box with a tamper proof craft paper tape. You can find this type of tape at an office supply store. It is designed to be moistened before it is applied. Note: You cannot use regular plastic tape.
  • Address the package with a regular mailing label including return address. The postal clerk will issue Registered Mail labels and apply them to your box. Nothing on your labels should indicate the value of the contents. Do not use words such as "gold", "silver", "rare coins", or " numismatics".
  • Take your package to the post office and complete the forms for registered mail. Purchase enough insurance to cover the value of your shipment. You can insure a shipment worth up to $25,000. If your package is worth more than that you must send multiple packages.
  • The postal clerk will use an indiceia stamp on every taped seam of the box and will give you a receipt for the package. This receipt should have a round stamp which details when the package was accepted and which station accepted it. If something happens to the package this information is VERY important.
  • As soon as practical, send GoodLife Actions an email to inform us that your have sent a package. Please provide the package's tracking number.
