Home Terms & Conditions
We are a Registered Business in Virginia. All non-bullion orders to Virginia addresses must add 5.3% Virginia sales tax. This is done automatically at Checkout. Send us within 10 days of purchase your valid Virginia Resale Certificate for a refund of your sales tax on any non-bullion items purchased for resale. We reserve the right to cancel any order for any reason. We reserve the right to modify these Terms of Sale as needed, with no prior notice.
The Commonwealth of Virginia recently passed a sales tax exemption to Virginia residents for "bullion purchases" in aggregate totaling over $1,000, effective July 1, 2015. This defines such purchases as: refined to least 90% gold, silver, or platinum; varying with the price of the underlying metal and not on rarity, condition, age, or other external factor; and selling for a price that does not exceed 120% of the underlying value of the precious metal. Since all of our gold, silver, and platinum coins have absolute and conditional rarity and numismatic premiums exceeding 120% of their precious metal content, the exemption does not apply to our inventory. We look forward to the day when the Commonwealth passes a blanket sales-tax exemption for all rare coins and paper currency, which would greatly benefit both Virginia businesses and the Commonwealth of Virginia as well.
We accept orders only from addresses within the United States. This is due to increased postage and insurance costs, possibility of loss, and complex customs requirements for shipping coins outside the United States. We apologize to our international visitors in advance. All amounts are in U.S. dollars (USD).
—Personal/Certified Checks, Cashier's Checks, U.S. Postal Service Money Orders. Personal/certified checks, cashier's checks, or U.S. Postal Service money orders are accepted for U.S. orders only. We will hold them for 10 business days to clear normal banking channels before your purchases are shipped.

Simple! We offer a seven-day, no-hassle return policy for any nonbullion item purchased, no questions asked. Items must be returned to us in their original condition and packaging. Return postage and insurance are the purchaser's responsibility. Because of volatility of precious metals markets, we do not offer refunds on bullion items ("raw" silver, gold, and platinum American Eagles; bullion gold coins; silver or gold bars, rounds, etc.).
We love coins and know you do, too, and we want you to be happy with every purchase from VDB Coins. We aim for personal service, numismatic expertise, excellent quality, and 100% customer satisfaction. Thank you for your patronage and your interest in our business.
At VDB Coins we like to keep things simple. We will never knowingly share any of your personal information with anyone outside the company, except as may be required by law. Simple.
