        Comments about 1986 1 oz Silver American Eagle BU:

        The coin I received had black spots on the obverse side (minus 1 star). I have seen reviews for other BU coins and it seems that APMEX occasionally sends those out with spots on them. I am sure that they would have exchanged it, based on those same reviews I mentioned above, but I was not able to engage such exchange due to personal circumstances, so I'll be keeping the coin now that enough time has past. I have a graded version of this same coin, so I guess the one in the album would be a little spotty.

        Outside of the practice of sending spotted coins occasionally, I have no other issues with APMEX. All transactions I have engaged in (including one exchange) have been very smooth, and I have developed a good level of trust for APMEX over the last year or so. I have not been able to find a better, more reasonable or reliable dealer, so I'll keep doing business with APMEX, and recommend them to others.

            I purchased this 1986 1 oz Silver American Eagle because if was the inaugural issue for this coin. It is a beautiful coin as are all American Eagles and a great addition to any collection. It arrived in as close to BU condition as I could expect...no outward flaws.

                    I started collecting American Silver Eagles only recently. I really wanted to have the first year. The coin looks like it was just minted. Thanks APMEX.

                                I just received one of these as part of my first order. It is STUNNING and quite honestly, the picture doesn't do them justice! Besides being the inaugural year for the coin, it was also the year I got married. A nice momento for our Silver Anniversary! Thanks to all the people at APMEX who processed my order with obvious care. I look forward to dealing with you again in the new year.
