Each 2019 1 oz Gold Australian Shipwreck Batavia Coin in this product listing comes in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The coins are housed inside of special triangular-shaped protective capsules to match the shape of the coins. Additionally, the gold coin release in this series comes with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

The Batavia sailed from Amsterdam in October 1628 full of trade silver and gold headed for the Dutch East Indies capital of Batavia, now known as Jakarta. Mutineers steered the ship off course though after rounding the Cape of Good Hope and it eventually shipwrecked on a reef near Western Australia’s coast.

On the obverse of the 2019 1 oz Gold Australian Shipwreck Batavia Coins is a depiction of Queen Elizabeth II as designed by Jody Clark. This appears at the top with inscriptions of “Elizabeth II,” “Australia,” and “2019.” Below the Queen’s effigy, the scenes of chaos that played out after the wreck are depicted.

When the Batavia struck the reef, it quickly sank and capsized resulting in the death of 40 people by drowning. The total passenger and crew roll included 341 souls. While the captain and a small crew went in search of fresh water, mutineers tried one last time to take control of the situation and eventually murdered 110 other passengers for not following along with the attempted mutiny.

The reverse of 2019 1 oz Gold Australian Shipwreck Batavia Coins features the image of the ship after its construction. The ship was built in Amsterdam in 1628 as the flagship of the Dutch East India Company. When you flip the coin upside down, the reverse design makes it possible to read the inscriptions but places the ship in its capsized position in a nod to its ultimate fate.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
