Love these Big Hunks of Sterling SIlver

By  Fritz R

from NE Kansas


These big coins are a great way to collect silver; the design isn't all that fantastic (unless you're a huge Bolivar fan), but there is something about these large silver coins that just demands respect. These have a panache that smaller, generic silver does not. The ones I got were all clearly uncirculated and without distracting marks of any kind. Thanks APMEX!

i almost want to write a negative review to keep people from buying these so i can have them all to myself. If i knew how cool they were i would have bought all 4 that were in stock. They are absurdly huge for currency that was used in day to day life. Mine came BU in a plastic capsule. AWESOME COINS!!!!!!!!!!
