We have noticed an upsurge in copycat/fake collectibles due to the popularity of some releases.
If you have received an item that you believe is not genuine, please let us know the URL of the website you bought the item from and we will alert the brand owner.
Please do not post this URL on social media as this will increase traffic to their link, potentially increasing the fake product's reach.
If you are unsure whether an item you have seen is a genuine New Zealand Mint release, please ask the retailer to provide further photographs of the product you will receive - this should not be an issue if the product is genuine. Please inspect these closely and cross-reference with the photographs we supply on our website.
The RRP pricing on our site should also be an indicator of genuineness as items should be around this price point. As is the final weight of the product. Some fakes are also missing key details on the packaging such as specifications.
You can find a catalogue of some releases on our blog for reference.
