This is the first release in the new Birds of Prey series from the Royal Canadian Mint, depicting the spectacular peregrine falcon. These birds, roughly the size of crows, can reach speeds of more than 200mph, making them the fastest animals in the world. The obverse of these .9999 fine Silver coins features the profile of Queen Elizabeth II, designed by Canadian born Susanna Blunt, along with the year and face value of $5 (CAD). This Silver coin has a limited mintage of 1 million coins, which adds to its appeal and collectibility.
To ensure our customers receive only coins that have remained unopened from the Royal Canadian Mint, APMEX has created a process to guarantee these coins are direct from the RCM 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 "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® 2014 1 oz Silver Canadian Peregrine Falcon 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 Royal Canadian Mint.
MintDirect® is a patented process that provides you the assurance this product has not been opened, sorted or searched. Click here to learn all about MintDirect® products from APMEX.
