On notification of your alternative arrangements for collection of the Bullion, KJC Coins will adjust the purchase price of your Bullion by the amount of any shipping costs invoiced to you that you no longer require.

Bullion can only be collected in person:
(a) by you on production of satisfactory identification; or
(b) by your agent with your prior written express authority upon production of satisfactory identification by the agent.
