To ensure our customers receive only coins that have remained unopened from the U.S. Mint, APMEX has created a process called MintDirect® to guarantee these coins are direct from the Mint to you. Silver Eagles from the San Francisco Mint are popular because the mint stopped production on them in 1992 and didn’t resume until 2011! Each Silver Eagle contains 1 oz of .999 fine Silver.
MintDirect® 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 this 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® 2013 1 oz Silver American Eagle 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 United States Mint.
MintDirect® is a patented process that provides you the assurance this product has not been opened, sorted or searched. APMEX's guarantee of MintDirect® San Francisco Silver Eagles may not be recognized by external grading services. Click here to learn all about MintDirect® products from APMEX.
