Product Display/Colors

PGS Gold & Coin and American Coin Collectors attempt to display product images shown on the site as accurately as possible. However, we cannot guarantee that the color you see matches the product color, as the display of the color depends, in part, upon the monitor you are using.

Use of Stock Images

We often have multiple quantities available of many of our most popular products. As a result we often use “Stock Images” to represent the actual product. When a “Stock Image” is used to merchandise a product, that use will be disclosed as follows:  The “Stock Images” used in this Description are an indicator of the quality of the item you will receive. The actual item you will receive is guaranteed to be as described and depicted.

Errors and Omissions

Prices and availability of products and services are subject to change without notice. Errors will be corrected where discovered, and PGS Gold & Coin and American Coin Collectors reserve the right to revoke any stated offer and to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions including after an order has been submitted and whether or not the order has been confirmed.

Pre-Owned Vintage US Mint Products

Except for current year products, nearly all of our US Mint products have been previously owned. Unless otherwise disclosed, all of our US Mint products come with their complete original packaging. We inspect all pre-owned US Mint products prior to offering them for sale. We only sell sets that have passed our inspection; the coins are typically free of excessive hazing, spotting, or distracting toning. While the items are typically in very good condition for their age, these vintage products are not new.

Bullion Products

Orders for Bullion products cannot be Cancelled or Returned for any reason. All Precious Metals Bullion product prices fluctuate constantly and prices may go up or down after your purchase. Price adjustments will not be made after your purchase commitment is locked-in regardless of subsequent price increases or decreases. Bullion coins, bars and rounds are mass-produced and are not manufactured to the same quality standards as collector coins. Bullion items are often shipped from the mint in bulk rolls, tubes or bags and even freshly minted items will have imperfections.

Precious Metals-based Product Pricing

All Precious Metals-based Product prices fluctuate constantly and prices may go up or down after your purchase. Price adjustments will not be made after your purchase commitment is locked-in regardless of subsequent price increases or decreases and no Refunds or Exchanges may be made for any reason.
