Apmex Gold Coins Are The "BEST" Period !

By  David

from Burbank


I buy Apmex products because they have great coins at a very good price, free shipping and the best customer service.


  • Attractive Design
  • Recognized Brand
  • Mint Condition
  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Easy to Sell


from IN


The Buffalo gold coins are the best looking coins the US mint has made in a long time. I was dissapointed when they discontinued the fractionals but at least I was lucky enough to have purchased a few!


from MD


This is one of the lowest mintages coins the US Mint has produced in the modern era. Buffalo gold coins were only made in fractional sizes for one year in 2008, and this coin is the key to the fractionals. It is a coin to keep your eye on! Also, in the current market these coins carry the strongest premium when they are in their original government holders like this one.
