Press release №56. On the Phased Transition to Online Sales of Investment and Collectible Coins
National Bank of Kazakhstan announces a gradual transition to online sales of coins of precious and non-precious metals in order to ensure the safety of the population in the current epidemiological situation. The transition starts in 2021.
At the initial stage, sales will be carried out both in the territorial branches of National Bank (hereinafter – branches) and through the online store of the NBK. The new and previously issued collections of coins will be available for purchase through the cash desks of the branches. The share of coins sold exclusively through the NBK online store will increase in stages.
‘Selling coins through an online store is a convenient alternative to purchasing them through the branches of the National Bank, especially for residents of remote cities and towns. People prefer buying coins online because it is time-saving and does not put their health at risk during this pandemic’, said Zhomart Kazhmuratov, the Director of Cash Circulation Department.
As a reminder, the online store was launched on the platform of the National Bank's website in the ‘National Currency’section in November, 2012.
Since the launch of online sales, the courier service EMS Kazpost, JSC has delivered more than a thousand coins from hand to hand. Delivery time and cost of coins depend on the buyer's place of residence and are calculated automatically according to the tariffs of Kazpost, JSC.
