Mint Direct - Your assurance of Precious Metals direct from the Mint.


The MintDirect® Difference

MintDirect® is a patent pending process created for you by the American Precious Metals Exchange, Inc. (APMEX) that certifies the precious metals received by APMEX are forwarded to you in the exact container as received by APMEX from a mint and sealed in a tamper evident wrapper.

How MintDirect® Products Benefit You

With MintDirect®, you have assurance that the precious metals you purchase are exactly as they left the Mint, untouched and unsorted by any person after leaving the Mint, in the same packaging as provided by the Mint and sealed in a tamper evident wrapper by APMEX so that you have evidence of the fresh and pristine nature of the precious metals inside.

How the Patent Pending Process of MintDirect® Works

Here's how the patent pending process of MintDirect® benefits you:

Step 1

APMEX receives deliveries of precious metals from many of the Mints of the world via secured delivery services.


Step 2

The precious metals are unloaded and placed in the APMEX vaults, which are located in the former Federal Reserve Bank building in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma now occupied by APMEX.


Step 3

Vault personnel carefully inspect the precious metals for certification.



Step 4

MintDirect® labels are prepared with a unique serial number for placement on each container of precious metals as received by APMEX from the Mint.


Step 5

Without opening the containers received from the Mint, the MintDirect® precious metals are then sealed in a tamper evident shrink wrap that identifies the precious metals inside the Mint container and carries the APMEX certification that you are receiving the original, unopened Mint container.


Step 6

The completed MintDirect® product evidences that you are receiving the original, unopened Mint container with precious metals that have not be searched, sorted or even seen or touched by anyone other than Mint personnel so that you have fresh, pristine precious metals exactly as they left the Mint.
