APMEX offers free shipping to our customers when you spend over $199†. We have no minimum order requirement; however, orders under $199 will be charged a shipping fee of $9.95.

Please note, Citadel orders under $500 will be charged a $9.95 shipping fee.
† Domestic orders only.

How long will it take to get my package?

APMEX generally packages and ships your order the following way (applies to domestic orders only):

  • Credit Card, Bank Wire, PayPal, Bitcoin or Bitcoin Cash Orders (containing Pre-33 Gold, kilo Gold bars, Jewelry, other items not designated with the QuickShip® logo or orders shipped to our Citadel subsidiary) - Ship within 3 business days following the date of confirmed payment.
  • Credit Card, Bank Wire, PayPal, Bitcoin or Bitcoin Cash Orders (not containing Pre-33 Gold, kilo Gold bars, Jewelry, other items not designated with the QuickShip® logo or orders shipped to our Citadel subsidiary) - Ship within 1 business day* following the date of confirmed payment.
  • All Personal Check and eCheck Orders - Order is held 4-6 business days after payment is processed before shipping. Additional holding days may be added if your bank delays confirmation of your check payment. Due to an increase in fraudulent activity, we no longer view bank/certified/cashier’s checks to be “as good as cash”. They are now also held for verification of funds.
  • C.O.C. Orders (containing Pre-33 Gold or Jewelry) - Ship within 3 business days following the order date.
  • C.O.C. Orders (not containing Pre-33 Gold or Jewelry) - Ship within 1 business day following the order date.

All these timelines exclude weekends and holidays.
* APMEX will provide our QuickShip® Program with next-day processing of domestic orders not including Pre-33 Gold, kilo Gold bars or Jewelry paid by credit card, PayPal, Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash or bank wires. Restrictions apply. Orders containing product(s) not designated with the QuickShip® logo may be subject to fulfillment delays.

How do I track my order?

Orders shipped after business hours, or on weekends, are not received by the carrier until the following business day. Once received, it may take 1-2 business days for your tracking number to become active. To set notifications via text or email, click the tracking link in your shipping confirmation email and follow the instructions. Delivery dates are not guaranteed and could be missed due to weather, grounded flights, or other unforeseen delays.

How long will it take to ship my order?

Once your payment has cleared, we will begin packaging and shipping your order. With some exceptions based on the order contents, many credit card orders qualify for our QuickShip® Program, providing next-day processing for domestic orders. This is an added benefit of buying Gold and Silver bullion with a credit or debit card from APMEX. Once your order has shipped, you will receive an email confirmation that includes the tracking number. This information can also be found on your account page.

Do you ship internationally?

Yes. Please see the International FAQ section.

How do you wrap your packages?

All our packages are carefully and discretely wrapped, typically in brown or white corrugated boxes and do not to give any indication as to the contents inside.

How is my order shipped?

Your sales orders are shipped by us by common carrier unless otherwise expressly agreed upon by APMEX and you based on particular circumstances, such as shipment weight or transaction amounts.

Is my package insured while in transit?

My order was delivered but is incomplete or I have some other issue with my order.

Notification of issues for tampered packages must be made within two (2) business days and any return request must be submitted within seven (7) days from the shipment date.

My package appears to have been damaged or tampered with. What should I do?

We recommend you refuse any shipment that appears to be damaged or tampered with as the shipping insurance ends once signed for and/or delivered. When refused, the package(s) will return to APMEX for inspection. If you have taken possession of a damaged or tampered package, please save all packaging and contact APMEX at (800) 375-9006 within 48 hours for further instructions. Failure to notify us of damage or tampering within 48 hours from signature or delivery date may impact our ability to cover your claim.

Does APMEX ever back order items?

Supply and demand problems occasionally occur in our business. From time to time, we have more buyers than sellers. If this should happen, we reserve the right to delay delivery up to 30 days (From your expected shipping date) to fill your order. Even if the price continues to rise, your price is locked in. We will deliver your bullion (Non-Numismatic) product within 30 days. If you ordered a numismatic or supply item which has previously sold or we are out of stock on, we will either place it on back order, attempt to locate another or a refund will be given. Should the value of your items decrease in that time period, you will not be entitled to any market gain.

Can you ship my order to a post office box?

Yes, orders shipped registered and insured U.S. mail can be sent to a P.O. Box. If a different shipping method is used, you must specify a street address for shipment. A signature may be required upon delivery of your package.

My package appears to be lost. What should I do?

If tracking has not updated for your delivery in at least seven (7) days, we may start a loss claim investigation. We must be notified of a lost package within thirty (30) days from the shipment date of your order.

Is a signature required for my shipment?

Packages we ship may not require a signature for delivery. If you want to ensure someone signs for your delivery, you can add a signature requirement to your order during the checkout process.
