The Scoin Shop and The South African Gold Coin Exchange have a strict no cash refund policy as the advertised prices of all products fluctuate from day to day due to their intrinsic gold/silver value which is directly linked to the gold/silver price.

6.1 Although the Seller attempts to act as a market maker in respect of coins and medallions which it sells, the ability of the Seller to sell coins and medallions will be determined by the specific market conditions
prevailing at the time of the proposed trade exchange. This also includes, but not limited to, supply and demand, gold price, exchange rate, and the need for the Seller to obtain a sufficient margin to cover its own costs in reselling such Goods that may be bought back.
6.2 The sale of Goods back to the Seller will only be accepted by the Seller with the Seller’s prior written agreement and then only at the Seller’s sole discretion, and at such a price that the Seller at their sole discretion will determine and agree with the Buyer.

You hereby acknowledge that you understand that you are using the information herein as your own risk.
9. Krugerrand V Collectable Coin Prices
9.1 A Krugerrand’s value is linked to the gold price whilst the value of medallions and rare coins are determined by the precious metal component, the rarity of the coin and the market interest in that particular coin/medallion at any given point in time. Although all products are a long-term wealth preserve venture, rare coins require a longer period to yield the best results. The purchaser hereby acknowledges that they understand the difference between the various product prices.
10.1 Quotations are valid for seven (7) days for all coins/medallions with the exception of Krugerrands and no binding contract shall be deemed to have been effected until the order arising out of the quotation has been confirmed in writing by the Seller’s acknowledgement and acceptance of order.

12.3 The Seller reserves the right to charge interest at the rate of 4% over the prime lending rate from time to time of Standard Bank on sums outstanding after the stipulated date and for the avoidance of doubt time shall be of the essence in respect of the payment conditions.

Interest will be charged in accordance with clause 12.3.
14.5 The Buyer’s right to possession of the Goods shall cease if he, not being a company, is unable to pay his debts when due or is made bankrupt or if he, being a company, does anything or fails to do anything which would entitle a receiver or administrator to take possession of any assets or which would entitle any person to present a petition for winding-up.
