Return and Exchange Policy

Marc One™ does offer options and a limited 5 day return policy for non-bullion (bullion products* defined below) products. The 5 day period starts after courier proof of delivery to you or your agent. If you plan to return your purchase we require a phone call AND an email to: within this time frame.

Non-bullion common date coin(s) or “generics” – may be exchanged within 5 days of receipt for the same type of common date coin but not always the same date if you are unhappy with your “generic” purchase for any reason. In this swap, the grade of your new coin remains the same however your new coin is just different and hopefully to your liking. If you are still not satisfied, you will be issued a full refund upon the return and receipt of your purchase to Marc One™. 

Non-bullion Rare coin purchases. If, within 5 days after delivery, you are unhappy with your rare coin purchase an exact date exchange may not be possible as rare coins tend to be more unique by nature. If this is the case you will have the option of a full credit towards any other new coin purchase at Marc One™ or you may have a full refund.

After 5 days in your possession exchanges are welcome however Marc One™ will credit your account in such a trade at our bid/buy price towards your new purchase.

After 5 days in your possession full refunds will not be given. Marc One™ will offer to purchase your coin(s) from you at our current bid or buy back price.

After 5 days it is disclaimed, these above actions may result in a loss to you.

Bullion Product* Sales at Marc One™  are final and non-refundable. Marc One™ will make market offers to buy all bullion or bullion related products back based on the spot metal price at the time of return. It is disclaimed: this could result in a loss for you even if the market has gone up.

Risk and Risk Management

Numismatic items, coins and bullion and related items can and sometimes do lose significant value. In a worst case, like a market collapse, this could be as much as 50% of your cost. Numismatic items, coins, bullion and related items can appreciate in value; however, this can take 15 years or more. Marc One does not recommend you buy coins unless you have discretionary, extra money. Marc One does not recommend more than 15% of your family’s net worth be spent or invested in numismatics, coins, bullion, etc.

In addition to rare coins and bullion we believe a prudent, rounded portfolio should include: Cash in FDIC insured bank accounts, Real Estate, low risk U.S. stocks, Government Bonds and Fine Art. In some specialized cases, trading cards, rare wine and rare automobiles. We believe it is prudent to be diversified across and through different categories as not all investments are liquid at all times.

Disputes and How to Solve Them

Call us first. 1-800-346-2721. In our opinion, there is no better place to resolve any problem than with us. However, any dispute which can not be resolved informally shall be submitted to binding arbitration before the Professional Numismatists Guild (PNG) located in Fallbrook, CA. The PNG can be found at WWW.PNGDEALERS.ORG

Having conducted business with Marc One it is agreed neither party is entitled to recover consequential or punitive damages or attorney fees from the other party.
