PLEASE FOLLOW THE STEPS BELOW TO AUTHENTICATE YOUR MINT & VAULT PURCHASE.
Check the outside product packaging, it will have an official Mint & Vault wax seal (as shown below).
Please make sure the seal is not missing or broken and matches the wax seal design below (the color of this wax seal may vary, but the design must match the example below).
Official Mint & Vault Wax Seal Example
Check the ART number "MV" number that came with your product. It will be found on the back of the authentication card made from hard, rigid paper that came with your purchase, titled the "CERTIFICATE of Authenticity" also called the "Certificato di autenticita". If your purchase does not come with an authentication card, you will find your ART number printed on the outside packaging, starting with the letters "MV".
Valid ART numbers must start with the letters "MV" and are 15-digit alpha numeric.
Authenticate your "MV" number by using our ART Number Authenticator, which can be found here:
Authentication is quick. By entering your MV number into the search box and clicking search you will find out if your product is authentic, as well as find additional information about your product.

If your product is priced at or above $300.00 USD it will also include a second authentication number called a Certilogo number that starts with the letters 'CLG". Look for this "CLG" number on the back of the plastic certificate card that comes with your purchase, titled the "CERTIFICATE of Authenticity" also called the "Certificato di autenticita".
Please note: Products priced below $300.00 USD will not come with this Certilogo number, if your purchase is priced below $300.00 USD please refer only to Steps 1 and 2 above to authenticate.
Mint & Vault authenticates its products using Certilogo to guarantee the purchaser will always receive an authentic product. If your purchase carries a 12-digit Certilogo Code starting with "CLG" anywhere on the product or Certificate Card that came with the product please go to the Certilogo website to begin authentication:
Authentication is quick by entering your CLG code and answering a few questions and you will know within a few seconds if your product is authentic.
Certilogo Code Example: CLG 000 000 000 000
