Comments about 2013 7-Coin Pure Silver Canadian Proof Set - Arctic Expedition:
This Arctic Expedition set was my first purchase from Apmex, but it won't be my last. I placed my order for this set and two days later, they delivered it and I live in Louisiana. Online, 7-piece silver and gold highlighted set looked so beautiful. In person, it is so beautiful! I love it. I could not be more pleased with my purchase or with the service and shipping from Apmex. They surprised me with their handling and shipping speed! Thank you!
