    I cannot find it. Will they issue me with a replacement one or do I have to pay for a new one? Somehow I think it will be the latter...

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but they won't issue a replacement even if you pay for it.

    You can get a reprint if you meet certain criteria, basically that you live at the same address and your application is between 14 days and 3 months of the certificate being issued and that the original has not been lost.

    The reprint service exists because so many certificates went AWOL in between sending and receiving (!). I guess if it is within the 3 months you could claim that you didn't receive it. Otherwise - lost certificates won't be replaced.
