Availability of items.

We make no guarantee or promise that items you wish to purchase are available.  

Quite a bit of effort is put into keeping this website current, but it is a large site with many HUNDREDS of items and sometimes there is a time lag between items on the site that have been sold, being actually listed as "Sold" 

Sometimes, in this time, a purchase request will be made for an item already sold.  That is life, sorry. 

Sometimes, we just plain forget that an item that has sold has not been marked that way on the website. Although we try to not to make a habit of it, we are human and oversights do sometimes happen.

If you miss out, we will make an effort to locate a similar item for you, however, many of our items listed are scarce and hard to get in the short term. The shopping cart is old, like us, and often does not work with newer computers.

Best to IGNORE the cart and send an email with a purchase request for the items that interest you to oldcoins@senet.com.au

This will usually result in fast, efficient service.


Mail order is not a particularly fast format, although, we can get items to you quite quickly by Express post.

If you want the goods today, drive to the city, find a shop and pay the retail prices, which are nearly always more than the prices listed on this website. 

Mail takes 3-7 days by registered post within Australia FROM THE DAY WE POST IT, so any transaction through mail order outside SA is likely to be a 10+ day exercise.

Please keep this in mind when buying via mail order.

Express Post (usually 1-2 days delivery time) is available for most items and we do tend to send more and more material by Express these days.

All items sent by Registered or Express Platinum mail are covered by our private transit insurance to their full value at (usually) no extra charge to you. 

GST PAID, the dear, lovely GST is fully paid for Australian buyers, it is included in the price. 

What all this means is that the price you see is the price you pay. 

The only extra cost  we charge is for postage on items under $750 or postage on gold coins or silver bullion.

We are a Registered Business with an Australian Business Number  and we will supply a GST invoice to any likewise ABN registered business that requests it...  If you are keeping coins and stamps as Superanuation and your fund has an ABN, then we will supply a GST invoice on your request. Other than that we do not usually supply GST details or invoices, unless requested. 

We pay income tax and GST on all items sold and keep an order book that records every mail order transaction we make.
