Hi so it seems custom duty for coin’s imported from outside India and shipped to India is very high!

Anyone who been through this? Shipping to usa is hassle free but... Thanks!

Can't help you with taxes, but can tell you that in my experience, coins sent to India, even cheap ones, tend to disappear in the mail. There are a number of frustration threads on this subject. The only solution seems to be a friendly courier, at which point you are back to an earlier thread you started on crossing the border with coins.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Hi Peter thanks for the insight. Yes this is sad but theft seems to be a problem. Well other way is to purchase from Indian auction sites based within India. The downside is that most Indian sites don’t have great quality coins.
