      That is pretty

      By Whacker

      from USA

      Comments about 1 oz Gold American Eagle (Random Year):

      I was skeptical about paying the few points of premium for an eagle. But after getting one in my hand, it was worth it. I like the fact that it's the most recognizable bullion coin on the planet. Over the course of a few decades, the few extra percent I paid will be immaterial to me if it helps sell to a lesser informed investor.

              More than just gold

              Comments about 1 oz Gold American Eagle (Random Year):

              Every other review is spot on about these coins. What I would like to add is that the beauty of these coins reminds me of the underlying strength of our country no matter what is going on at the time. We always find a way, and this coin reminds me of such.

                  There are many great gold coins but the American Eagle is in my opinion the most beautiful design of all and they are American gold. My random year coins were 2010s and were near mint condition. I am very happy with my purchase.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  Excellent interaction with online chat as well as phone contacts. Fast delivery, great discreet packaging, good pricing. What more can you ask for. Count me in as a loyal customer.

                      Comments about 1 oz Gold American Eagle (Random Year):

                      Coins are well-made and very recognizable (liquid). I personally like the color of pure gold rather than the reddish-pink hue in these alloyed bullion coins. They have an inflated face value of $50 (over the official $42.22), but the fact that they are minted by a government and possess a face value adds credibility to them. Excellent barter coins in the USA.

                      Service and delivery comments:

                      APMEX customer service is exceptional! I loved the manner in which the items were packaged and the obvious commitment to excellence displayed in the beautiful storage carton as well as the sealed tubes and labels. The outside cover of the shipping package was discreet and the product was packaged in a manner that kept the contents private. An added bonus was the attractive owner manual and care guide.

                          This is really just a gorgeous coin. I have silver eagles too, but the gold's luster looks amazing with the relief on the design. My favorite is looking at it in sunlight to really pick up the details.

                              I've placed four separate orders of (Random Year) Gold Eagles, a total of 5.25oz, since the April/13 smash down and I'm continually impressed with the service by the APMEX staff. Same day shipping on all orders, even when ordering as late as 2:00PM - Oklahoma time.
                              The coins have all been BU condition except for one which showed the tiniest scratch on the obverse. But that's fine as this product is not billed as a proof or collector grade coin, merely a bullion piece.
                              Of my purchases the years are truly random, ranging from 1991-2006.
                              This is one of the best gold bullion deals out there right now and I fully intend to place more orders with APMEX...
