Is it possible to return previously purchased collectors’ coins to the National Bank of Kazakhstan, and if yes, how?

Answer

Collectors’ coins are issued in a limited edition from precious metals (gold and silver) and base metals (cupronickel and nickel silver). They are intended for collection and development of the numismatic (secondary) market, where demand for them depends on a circulation, subject matter, design, workmanship and novelty of the technologies used.

The National Bank buys from individuals and legal entities only those collectors’ coins which were previously issued by the National Bank. Collectors’ coins of other countries are not accepted.

When buying back collectors’ coins made of base metals, a client is paid their face value. When buying back collectors’ coins from precious metals, an examination is carried out to determine content of pure precious metal, fineness and weight in grams.

When calculating a cost of bought back collection coins made of precious metals, morning fixing (price of corresponding precious metals in USD) and a KZT/USD weighted average exchange rate are taken into account. USD fixing of precious metals can be found at www.lbma.org.uk.

If an amount of buying back of collectors’ coins made of precious metals, determined by value of content of pure metal (with specified fineness and weight) in a coin, exceeds an approved selling price fixed by a resolution of the Board of Directors of the National Bank, a client is paid an amount of the initial selling price of the coin.
