Shipping Gold to Puerto Rico
I sold a 2016 gold commemorative coin on eBay for ~$1400. The buyer is located in Puerto Rico, and has excellent feedback over many years, so I'm not concerned about the buyer.
Would you recommend shipping this item Priority or Registered? I feel that shipping to PR may be slightly riskier than the continental US, and want to make sure I'm covered in the event of loss. My concern is that USPS might classify the coin as gold bullion—not a numismatic item—in which case it would not be covered by insurance unless registered.
Any advice from folks that have had experience with this?
Nothing is as expensive as free money.
