Denali National Park is located in the interior of Alaska. The reverse of the coin features a Dall sheep with Denali, also known as Mount McKinley, rising in the background. At 20,320 feet above sea level, Denali is the highest mountain in North America. Denali is also the third most prominent peak in the world, behind Mount Everest and Aconcagua.
Established as a national site in 1917, the park was created to protect wildlife populations such as grizzly bears, caribou, Dall sheep and moose. In 1980, the park was expanded from 2 million to more than 6 million acres, of which about 16% is covered in glaciers.
To ensure our customers receive only coins that have remained unopened from the United States Mint, APMEX has created a process to guarantee these coins come direct from the U.S. Mint to you. This process is called MintDirect® and it is your symbol of guarantee that these coins remain packaged in tubes taken directly from the sealed green "Monster Boxes," as they were delivered.
APMEX uses a special machine for the sealing process to ensure the products you receive are sealed completely once they are removed directly from the mint boxes. The mint tubes are placed on the 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 it. 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® 2012 5 oz Silver ATB Denali Forest coins.
Once completed, 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 U.S. Mint. Orders of 100 coins will come with 10 MintDirect® tubes in a "Monster Box".
The MintDirect® process provides you the assurance this product has not been opened, sorted or searched. Click for more details.
