Terms of Sale

All sales will be made through payment in Swiss
Francs, with the addition of a buyer’s premium of
20% on the hammer price. An additional charge of
2.5% will be added to the invoice of all successful live
internet bids. For all lots delivered in Switzerland
there is an additional Swiss VAT of 8% due on the
hammer price and on the buyer’s premium for silver
and bronze coins, and for medals. The purchaser is
responsible for all taxes and fees due for delivery of
lots outside of Switzerland. Payment is due
immediately following conclusion of the sale. Full
title to purchases is only obtained upon full
payment. A charge of 1% per month will be assessed
for delayed payments. Bids below 80% of the
estimated prices will not be accepted. Written bids
take preference over room bids.
Buyers are personally responsible for their own
purchases and cannot claim to act on the account or
instructions of a third party. Adjudication occurs on
the fall of the hammer and commits the bidder to
acceptance of the lot.
The lot descriptions, including the degree of
preservation, are opinions and made in good faith.
The authenticity of all coins is guaranteed. Justified
complaints can only be considered if made within
eight days of the auction. Upon receipt of full
payment, shipment of lots will be arranged for the
purchaser at his expense and risk. In general, the
usual conditions applied to auctions held in Zürich
apply here.
Due to delivery problems in the past shipments to an
address in Russia are no longer possible.
Exclusive jurisdiction for any legal proceedings shall
be Zürich 1. Although the Conditions of Sale are
provided in English, French and German, only the
German text is legally valid. The bidder accepts these
conditions of sale by the submission of a bid,
whether verbal or written.
