Terms of Use



Transactions via the New Zealand Mint (NZ Mint) Website are carried out in New Zealand Dollars (NZD). A range of other currency estimates are provided for our customers and conversion rates used on our website may differ slightly from rates published elsewhere.

If your purchasing currency is not your native currency, your final bill will be determined by the exchange rate applied by your credit card company at the time the charge is recorded, plus any fees applied by your credit card provider.

For payment by bank transfer, if your ordering currency is not your native currency, your final bank transfer payment total will be determined by the exchange rate applied by your bank, plus any fees applied by your bank.


Sales Tax

All sales to persons outside New Zealand (NZ) are exempt from New Zealand Goods and Services Tax (GST). For NZ domestic sales, all products of 99.5% pure metal or higher (gold and silver coins, medals and bullion) are exempt from GST. However, products incorporating other materials in their manufacture (including coins on stands, jewellery, and the like) are subject to the standard rate of GST applying at the time of sale.


Duties, Taxes and Customs Clearances

You may be subject to import duties, taxes and customs clearances levied by your country or other overseas authority once a shipment reaches your country. These charges are not included in the price. You should contact your local customs office for further information on applicable duties, taxes, restrictions and fees. NZ Mint takes no responsibility for the payment of these duties, taxes, restrictions or fees.


Payment Process

It is a strict policy of NZ Mint that all purchases must be paid for prior to shipping of the products, regardless of the value.

Purchases of Gold Coins of a size over ¼-Ounce cannot be made by Credit Card.Our preferred method of payment for these is via bank transfer.

Credit Card

Purchases are subject to an upper limit on value and we reserve the right to change the limit from time to time.

We reserve the right to refuse to accept Credit Cards on the basis of Country of Origin, issuing bank or upon the recommendation of our payment processor. If your payment is refused, you will be notified by DPS or NZ Mint. All purchases unable to be handled by Credit Card are to be paid by Electronic Bank Transfer. Arrangements for this procedure can be made by contacting sales@newzealandmint.com

The name "NZ Mint Ltd" will appear on the cardholder statements for any transactions through this website.

Bank Transfer

Payment for Bank Transfer purchases must be received within 7 days of order. Payments not received within 7 days will result in cancellation of the order - without notice.

Incorrect Customer Information

NZ Mint is not responsible for any customer input errors and/or typographical errors in your name or address when you enter it in the shopping cart or on your mail order form.

The customer is responsible for verifying all information is correct before submitting an order. When you receive your automatically generated email invoice (this is generated when you submit your order), be sure you read it and if you find any errors, contact us immediately by replying to the return address in the email.

We use the address you give us when you place your order. This shows up on the delivery details of your invoice if the address is different from the customer's address. We verify that the address given on your order matches the address on the shipping label before printing the shipping label and affixing it on your package.

If you have a typographical error, such as a wrong house number, apartment number, street name, and the like and do not contact us before your order is shipped, NZ Mint cannot be held responsible if your order is shipped with the incorrect information on the shipping label and you do not receive the package. We have no way of knowing a name/address is incorrect due to such an error, neither does the Postal Service of your country.

NZ Mint will endeavour in all cases to have returned any shipment that is not delivered, but if this is not possible the responsibility and onus remains with the purchaser.

If for any reason an order is returned to us with an incorrect address, customers are responsible for paying the postage costs to send it to the correct address once we receive it back. If we receive your order back as undeliverable, we will verify the address you gave us is on the shipping label and you will be contacted via email. Payment for the postage to resend the package to you will be due within seven days of sending the email. No refunds will be given if this occurs.



Choose carefully as we do not refund if you change your mind. If the goods are faulty we will meet our obligations under the Consumer Guarantees Act. NZ Mint abides by NZ's Consumer Guarantees Act 1993 and the Sale of Goods Act 1908.
