APMEX uses a special machine to ensure the products you receive are completely sealed once they are removed directly from the mint boxes. The mint tubes are placed on a conveyor leading into the machine and the sealing process seals both ends of each tube with tamper-evident packaging. If this tube has been opened in any way, you will know.
After the process is completed, the tube is removed from the machine and then checked to ensure the quality of the packaging meets our exacting standards. You now have a finished tube of MintDirect® 2018 5 oz Silver America the Beautiful coins.
Once checked for quality, the MintDirect® tubes are stored back in the vault until they are ordered by our customers. By using this process, APMEX can guarantee the coins you receive are in exactly the same condition and packaging as they were when they left the United States Mint.
Block Island National Wildlife Refuge
Block Island National Wildlife Refuge, named after the Dutch explorer Adriaen Block, lies 12 miles off the coast of Rhode Island on the Outer Lands coastal archipelago. The island was incorporated by Rhode Island in 1672 and today 40 % of the island is dedicated to preservation with an island population of 1,000 people. There are 17 miles of beach on the island and the 134 acres of conserved lands were established as a refuge in 1973. As recently as 2016 the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service approved the Great Thicket National Wildlife Refuge for managing shrub land habitat for the animal life in the Northeast. Together this land is an important area for migratory songbirds which pass by the island each fall, not surprisingly the island is a popular destination for birdwatchers.
