APMEX created the MintDirect® process to guarantee these coins are direct from the San Francisco Mint to you. Silver Eagles are produced at the San Francisco Mint in smaller numbers than other U.S. Mint locations. MintDirect® is your symbol of guarantee these coins remain packaged in tubes taken directly from the sealed green "Monster Boxes," as they were delivered.
- Each coin contains 1 oz of .999 fine Silver, for a total of 20 oz Silver.
- Obverse: Adolph A. Weinman’s design showing Lady Liberty draped in an American Flag, walking gracefully as the sun rises over a ridge.
- Reverse: A heraldic eagle is shown below 13 small stars, representing the original colonies.
- Sovereign coin backed by the U.S. government.
Protect and store your tubes in secure U.S. Mint Monster Boxes.

January of every year, the United States Mint is required to deliver coins that carry the date of the new year. Accordingly, the dies used to strike the coins from the prior year are destroyed and new dies are engraved, prepared and deployed to strike the coins for the new year.
Because the coin dies wear down over thousands of strikes, the detail of the engraved die that transfers to the newly struck coin begins to flatten, and the quality of the finished coin diminishes below standards. At this point, the dies are replaced. For each minting press, new dies may be required multiple times each year. Once the new dies are installed, the strike quality (the detail transferred to the newly struck coin) returns to its maximum. There is no public notice that dies are changed, and each minting press changes dies at different times required by die wear.
Each new year, the Mint engraves new dies prominently featuring the date of the new year. As APMEX is a U.S. Mint authorized purchaser, its personnel have observed the die making process at the U.S. Mint.
Because each new year brings new dies, APMEX has designated all MintDirect® products delivered by the U.S. Mint in January of each year as MintDirect® Premier. Each MintDirect® Premier tube is an unopened, sealed original Mint tube that is individually labeled, designating the coins as Premier. The MintDirect® Premier designation may not be recognized by external grading services. APMEX will only have a limited number of MintDirect® Premier products each year.
All MintDirect® products delivered in any month other than January will carry the usual MintDirect® label designating that the original U.S. Mint tube has not been opened since the coins were packaged at the Mint and accordingly are unsearched and unsorted. MintDirect® is a process exclusive to APMEX that guarantees these 2014 Silver Eagles come directly from the San Francisco Mint and have remained unopened.
