The good and the bad of it.

This coin is a thing of beauty, I have been anticipating buying it. APMEX did an excellent job packaging and quickly delivering it. Now for the bad... my heart sunk when I opened the box. The proof platinum Krugerrand wasn't even in the capsule! Because of the rim, the coin surfaces were mostly protected, but there was one scratch on the mirror surface, and the plastic capsule was fairly scuffed. Because the box is sealed in a plastic bag from South Africa, APMEX has no way of evaluating or securing the coin without breaking the seal. I have since read many other reviews of the same thing happening with the Silver proofs. This is a blunder by the South African Mint that's epic. There's a note in the box with the coin that warns against taking the coin out of the capsule, and yet no one at the Mint thinks to put a 1 cent piece of foam or other insert to keep a multi-thousand dollar coin secure from rattling out of it upon delivery. As much as I loved the coin design, I couldn't stomach paying this premium to keep a damaged coin. APMEX representative was helpful in processing the return. Given the history, I highly recommend APMEX open, screen for quality, and secure the coin before sending it to the end customer. I might try again. Thanks for reading.
