    Would greatly appreciate it if anybody can help with the above question.

    Specifically, what are the regulations - for example import duties, amount limits, etc - when shipping coins from South America to the USA?

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    The US doesn't have import duties on coins. If they are bullion with a value over $10,000 it might be best to declare them. There are regulations on coins from some countries that can't be imported due to "cultural heritage" problems, but most of these are on "ancient" coins. And even those can be imported with the proper documentation that they left the country of their origin before certain dates.

    @Eduard Ask coin stores/dealers/collectors in your area. I do know of a big Peruvian collector who mentioned he has had issues and has had coins confiscated and not given back.

    I buy coins from all over the world....Italy, Malta, UK, Slovenia, France, Germany, Greece, Argentina, South Africa, Canada and have never once been charged any duties when I receive them.
    The longest shipping time was for a coin I ordered from South Africa, month and a half.
