F&Q’s - Frequenty Asked Questions
I have questions on how to pay for my products and your policies.
I wish to cancel my purchase, what are your policies.
I would like to purchase some physical metals for transporation to Europe or USA, etc..
We as a group not only have our vaults in Freeport Singapore, but we also have vaults in London. We can ship directly from London thereby reducing the cost of insured delivery substantially.
Please contact us directly for an accurate estimate of delivery to your particular region of the world. We can also give advice on local taxes and shipment delivery dates depending on the available quantity of the metals you are looking to purchase.
How are my goods sent?
We have a number of logistic agents we work with, including UPS, Brink's and FedEx. All our packages are sent fully insured and require a signature on receipt. Once your items have been dispatched, you will be sent an online tracking number.
Please note that packages are insured until signed for upon receipt at the delivery address.We can accept no liability for items once signed for.
How will I know when my order is being delivered?
You will receive an email following dispatch of your order which will include a tracking number.
I notice your price for Gold products is above current market price. Why is this?
The global spot price for gold is purely a paper based futures contract, based on inter-bank transfers of London-Good-Delivery Bars which are 400 oz or 12.5 kilograms in weight. This price is only available to large banks or financial institutions and does not include any brokerage fees, transportation, storage or insurance.
Smaller bars and bullion coins are always sold at a premium to the spot paper prices to reflect the additional costs of refining, production, packaging and shipping. Bullion coins-of-the-realm will vary in price depending on production supply and mint seigniorage against world demand.
You will find our premiums are extremely competitive and hence our products lower-priced compared to other dealers. The larger bars of 1 kilo are the most cost effective.
How will I know you have received my funds?
You will immediately receive an email from us to confirm receipt of funds have been received in our company bank accounts.
Transfer of funds 'once fully cleared' in our accounts will be immediately credited to your online-funds-balance in the relevant currency.
Do your bars come with an assay certificate?
All of our bullion bars are investment products and hence 24 carat and therefore have a 99.99% purity. The bars or coins all have their purity stamped upon them.
All of our bars have a unique serial number that is held on the refinery or mints database. Some of our smaller bars come sealed in tamper proof packaging. If a certificate is supplied, it will always be shown in the image and stated in the description.
All of our bars come directly from the mints or refineries and hence come with a clear paper trail of purchase.
Do you buy back bullion bars and coins that you have sold, which are not held in storage ?
We are happy to re-purchase any bars or coins that we have supplied at very competitive buy-back prices.
However as a company we will only be offering these product buy-backs to customers that hold their metals within our vaulting system in Le Freeport or in the London Vaults.
We will not be accepting buy-backs from customers who walk into our offices with metals. The purpose of this policy is we have the relevant paper trails directly back to the refineries themselves, where we purchased the metals in the first place as official distributors and delivered directly into the customer vaults.
