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 a lot 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. 

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 and often does not work with newer computers.

Best to 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 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. Also, try and find the range of items listed on this website in most coin shops... Good luck.

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.

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.

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. Other than that we do not supply GST details or invoices, unless requested. 

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

Orders or enquiries.

I am at the stage of my life where I don't really care to send things out of Australia.

Too much hassle with indifferent postal services, ridiculous postage costs, frauds and other issues, such as customs declarations, etc, yawn..

There are plenty of coin dealers out there who will ship internationally, so probably best to find one of them. 

Or, if you have a friend/relative in Australia, get them to pay for it by direct deposit or cheque, I can send it to them and they can send it on to you. I am an ANDA member since 1998 and will send what you pay for.


Any collections or bulk lots are sold as is, with any faults etc, however, we will listen to any reasonable query and make a fair attempt to resolve any problems. 

Single Items: These are sold as described from this web page. If the description is obviously wrong OR you are not happy for ANY reason, then a full refund will be issued, provided the item is returned within 30 days of the date you received the item. 

Send us your Want List.  We will try and assist with your particular wants.  Areas of strength are Ancient Greek and Roman coins, the English series from the Dark Ages to 19th century, also Colonial and Proclamation coins. We also keep a good range of Australian pre-decimal/decimal coins & banknotes in a more sensible price range.  

BUYING  coins, stamps and banknotes at fair prices. If we do not wish to buy your material outright, it can be professionally lotted and described by us on your behalf and sold through Australia's MOST RESPECTED auctions at Sydney &/or Melbourne venues at a reasonable commission. 

In MOST cases, we can offer a cash price and pay cash for immediate sale. Everything you have for sale purchased, not just individual items. Advice given on the values of your material in the current market, either for direct sale or through auction. CASH ADVANCES also available on top-grade material.
