I know this subject has been kicked around for years. However, this morning at my local Post Office I was told that USPS is no longer shipping “coins”; it’s on their “prohibited” list. I’m a small ancient coin dealer in Virginia. The majority of coins I sell are in the $300-$3,000 price range. I want to “insure” delivery and have the coins insured for full value in case of loss. In the past four years I have mailed 100’s of coins both domestically and internationally via the USPS. In the last nine months I have had two separate coins sales lost in transit – in the receiving country (Germany). Although I sent them Registered with declared value, I am told that “declared value” means nothing. Subsequently, USPS rent me refunds for the postage paid ($86. for both) but nothing for the value declared ($2,100). So now I’m in a rock/hard spot. How do I ship/mail my coins – domestically and internationally - so that they are insured for full value? I checked with UPS and was told that they will not ship ancient coins to Europe. So ….. ANY advice or “pointers” would be appreciated. Wash – Wash – Wash …. And stay healthy!
