Customer service needs to catch up with 21st century


the product seems alright. But I ordered for a special occasion 2-3 weeks in advance. While ordering I was presented with the option to pay in 3 equal monthly installments. The coin did not arrive on time for the occasion. When I called customer service they said, it'll ship within a few days. Again waited for a week and called once again. This time, they said that monthly installments need to be paid before shipping. Why couldn't they have informed at the time of ordering or even the first time I called them? Each time I call them, it take 10-15 minutes for them to look up the order and figure out a response. Despite knowing that they messed up the shipment, there was no acknowledgement of the fact that they could have done better, neither did they have any apologies. When they send the shipping tracking number and I open the link, it says shipment not found. They need to get it fixed with Canada Post or whoever they ship with. All in all, terrible experience. I'd rather buy from somewhere else where the payment and ordering process is more transparent and customer service has some empathy.

let's get better customer service



My son & daughter-in-law loved this gift for their new baby


Gift to my first grandchild, born in 2017, recognizing the worth of family.


St. Albert, Alberta


Great way to express how "precious" a new-born is


Gift for new-born


Ottawa, ON




This product is reasonably priced for the content of gold it contains. The coin is beautiful, well crafted, highly prized, and together with an attractive display case. I believe that this coin will increase in value, as gold continues to rise, and the mint's inventory of this product decreases.


Jersey City, New Jersey








Perfect gift!


Perfect gift for the birth of a child in 2017! Would have preferred to have spent half of this but didn't want to present anything less than pure gold...when I saw the coin it was larger than I expected and is impressive!






It's the gift from my father to our baby. He specifically asked for a gold coin to appreciate the value and also highly commented on its craftsmanship and design. We are very pleased.
