Right on the Money!

By  Marcus

from Fort Smith, AR

5.0

I ordered seven coins and received them in flips. There were no fingerprints or tarnish, just the normal wear and tear dings. I inspected them carefully and compared them to my new 2015s and found they looked pretty good for their age. It would be nice if they came right from the tube as they've been passed around a little over 19 years. Again, they look pretty good for their age.

Pros

  • Attractive Design
  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Easy to Sell
  • Mint Condition
  • Recognized Brand

Great Key date in the raw!

By  Maxgus62

5.0

I wanted to start a collection of Silver Eagles, although I have a few graded coins, I wanted to start looking for coins in the raw to complete my collection without spending a small fortune. APMEX makes this possible with a wide selection of Silver Eagles graded or not at very reasonable prices. This coin met my expectations, as well as all the other coins that have purchased.

Pros

  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Mint Condition

Poor Condition, Large Fingerprint

By  Corey

from Ohio

1.0

The product came with a large obvious fingerprint on the obverse which I believe certainly does not qualify it as a BU coin. If I am mistaken please correct me. Regardless, I expected better and am incredibly disappointed.

Pros

  • Attractive Design

Disappointed

By  Kyle

1.0

I have to echo another poor condition review. My coin looks bad. I expect handling marks but this is crazy. I expected more APMEX. 3 out of the 4 items of my order were as described but this coin was just sub-par. I would have expected this coin if I bought a "Cull, Damaged, Etc"...but I did not. Maybe I have to high of standards.

Not for single coin buyer...

By  Honey Badger

If you are looking to buy "brilliant uncirculated" you should buy 10 or more so you receive brilliant uncirculated. I bought one of each year and it looked like I received someone else's unkempt set. Too bad because everything else I have purchased has been phenomenal. I hate to have to leave a poor review, but the proverbial "ball" was dropped on this order of 28 coins. I have purchased 10 eagles and 10 leafs in the past and coins were pristine. This time my expectations were way too high, I wish I felt as good as when the bulk orders arrived.

Pros

  • Recognized Brand
  • Easy to Sell
  • Attractive Design

Received an exchange for the original 1996 ASE I purchased. The exchange was in good condition. Some minor scratches but overall I am pleased. Customer service was excellent. Very fast response to my concerns.

Not Happy

By  Joe

from Mass

First coin I have purchased from APMEX, I am not happy with the condition it is in. Both obverse and reverse have scratches and the luster is worn off in places on both sides. I just started buying ASE and have several others and they all are in great condition.

Pros

  • Collectible (lower mintage)

Cons

  • Poor Condition

Holding history in your hand

By  James

from California

5.0

The most rare BU American Eagle, a true prize for a coin collector such as myself. I bought this coin to add to my Dansco coin holder and finally complete the entire 1986-2013 American Eagle collection! When this coin came in I could tell it was well taken care of and was completely spotless. Home run APMEX!

Pros

  • Mint Condition
  • Recognized Brand
  • Collectible (lower mintage)
