How do I make a payment via online check?

For online check payments, Golden State Mint must verify the buyer's identity, and account information for each online checking account that will be used. This information can either be securely stored within your account profile, or the information can be supplied at checkout and verified with each order. You will need to provide us with either a faxed or digital copy of a voided check, and a State Identification Card or Driver's License. Online check payment information (for unverified accounts) must be received within thirty-six (36) hours from the time your order has been placed.

Once we have received this information, we can begin to process your order. There will be a minimum of 6-10 business days of processing time, after your payment has posted to the account. While a check may be "available" in our account, it hasn't fully cleared your account. If there are insufficient funds in your account, we will not find out until the fifth business day. We therefore have to wait until the sixth business day to process orders paid by check.

How do I make a payment via bank wire?

Bank wires are accepted on orders of $1,000.00 or greater. If you choose to pay with a bank wire, you will be sent an email detailing the instructions. Bank wire payments must be received within 36 hours* from the time your order has been placed. 


* Weekends and Bank Holidays will not count towards your time allowance.

How do I make a payment via mailed check?

Once your order has been placed, you will receive an email with the mailing address. Checks should be made payable to "Golden State Mint", and contain the Invoice or Order Number in the memo field. Mailed check payments must be received within ten (10) days from the time your order has been placed.
