What is the Miraculous Medal Medjugorje Round made of?
The Miraculous Medal Medjugorje Round is made of .999 pure silver. 

Is there a minimum to order?
There is no minimum order. However, please know that very small orders will incur a shipping fee that seems high compared to the amount of silver purchased. This is simply part of the cost of shipping .999 pure silver as an insured item. Just as with most other products, shipping becomes more cost effective with larger orders.

How are the rounds shipped?
Your orders are shipped directly from the mint via FedEx or USPS priority mail.

Are the shipments insured?
Yes. Every box containing the Miraculous Medal Medjugorje Rounds or gift items are fully insured.

How quickly will I receive my order?
We cannot guarantee how quickly your order will be completed and shipped. However, on average, our customers receive their silver in less than 8 weeks from the time their funds clear our bank account. Read the Pricing and Orders Terms for the terms that govern each purchase and shipment. 

Is there sales tax charged on my purchases?
There are no sales taxes charged on precious metals purchases in the state of Texas, which means all purchases of the Miraculous Medal Medjugorje Rounds by themselves are sales tax free. 
The only instance in which sales tax will apply is for purchases of certain gift items by customers who live in Texas. If any sales tax applies, it will be shown in the shopping cart at checkout. Call us at 1-877-936-7686 if you have any questions. 

Are there credit card fees charged on my purchase?
Yes. If you purchase online by credit card, the credit card fees are included in the line item: Shipping, Insurance, and Credit Card fees, during the checkout process. Some companies build the credit card fees into the product price. We do not build credit card fees into the price of the rounds because we want to break out the different costs for you so you can see exactly what your hard earned funds are applied to.
Because of the unavoidable fees associated with credit card purchases, those wishing to make larger purchases of the rounds should consider purchasing by check or wire to avoid the credit card fees. 

What does “Spot Price” mean?
For a good explanation of spot price in layman’s terms, read our article “Spot Price – What does That Actually Mean?”

What is the difference between Bullion Quality and “Proof-like” Quality?
Bullion quality rounds are the standard round you will receive when purchasing the Miraculous Medal Medjugorje Round. The mint’s attention to quality and precision results in high quality, beautiful, bullion rounds, which are still offered at a low price over spot. Please understand, however, that bullion quality rounds are not the same as what some might refer to as “mint condition.” Bullion rounds will contain some minor imperfections, such as small scratches, discolorations, etc. All bullion quality rounds are made of .999 pure silver. The images of the rounds you see on this site are only examples of the round, provided so you may see what they look like. What you receive may differ in appearance. 
“Proof-like” quality rounds are produced with a higher level of attention to the preparation of the blank rounds prior to stamping, to the polishing of the dies that stamp the rounds during production, and to the finished product after stamping. The end result is a more brilliant, polished round free of some of the minor imperfections associated with bullion quality. Currently, the only “Proof-like” quality rounds we offer for sale are those included in the One Troy Ounce Special Occasion Gift Chest. “Proof-like” quality rounds are made of .999 pure silver. 

Why am I limited to 10 each when “Purchasing by the Ounce?”
The option to “Purchase by the Ounce” is offered as a convenience for customers who want to purchase a small, exact amount of rounds on an infrequent basis. With this option, you are able purchase a fixed amount at a known price. Because the price of silver can change between the time you purchase by the ounce and the time we are able to purchase your silver from the mint, we are not willing to take on that risk for large amounts. Again, “Purchase by the Ounce” is offered as a convenience for small, infrequent purchases. Anyone wishing to make larger purchases should utilize “Purchase by Amount,” “Set up a Recurring Order,” or call us at 1-877-936-7686. If we notice anyone attempting to abuse this convenience by attempting to submit multiple orders over short intervals of time or multiple orders during evening hours or weekends, Century Silver Exchange Inc. may, at its sole discretion, cancel the buyer’s order(s), and may deny the buyer the ability to make future online purchases. 

Why am I limited to a total of $2,500 in the shopping cart?
We like to deal personally with all of our customers to make sure you clearly understand the purchase process, especially when you are committing a larger amount of your hard earned money. Generally, when purchasing by phone there is no limit to your purchase amount, no matter the payment method.

What address do I mail a check to?
IMPORTANT: For your privacy and security, when mailing anything to Century Silver Exchange, address your envelope to C.S.E. If mailing a check, make the check out to C.S.E.  Do NOT use the word "silver" on envelopes, checks, or any other mailed communications to Century Silver Exchange.

How do I send a wire?
Call us at 1-877-936-7686 for wire information. 

Should I purchase only Miraculous Medal Medjugorje Rounds?
Yes! There is no other round in the world like the Miraculous Medal Medjugorje Round, and you will hardly ever find a specialty round as detailed and as beautiful for such a low price over spot. The one ounce rounds all have stamped on their face, “One troy ounce .999 pure silver,” which means they can be sold at the same wholesale value as any other specialty round. The spiritual and conversion value of the rounds makes them more attractive than any other silver round. 

What do I with the rounds? How do I use them?
Currently, silver is not being commonly used as a means of exchange, but we believe with deep conviction that this time is coming. The transition to silver as a means of exchange will have to develop when the need to do so arises. For now, the Miraculous Medal Medjugorje Round is used as a transitional means to store your wealth. You can certainly hand out rounds at your discretion to spread the carrying of the Miraculous Medal image – giving the rounds as gifts or in different encounters you have with people. However, always keep in mind your security when deciding who to give the rounds to. 
Spread the book It Ain't Gonna Happen and there will be a great demand for the miraculous medal Medjugorje rounds. You should be able to get an amount close to spot price from a coin dealer.
