APMEX uses a special machine to ensure the products you receive are completely sealed once they are removed directly from the mint boxes. The mint tubes are placed on a 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. 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® 2015 1 oz Silver Red Tailed Hawk coins.
Once checked for quality, 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.
The MintDirect® process provides you the assurance this product has not been opened, sorted or searched. Learn more about MintDirect® products from APMEX.
The history of Canadian Silver coins
The producer of these 2015 Silver bullion coins, the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM), was established in 1908. The Royal Canadian Mint also produces the Birds of Prey and the Wildlife series, The RCM extracted Silver for these 1 oz Silver coins and other Silver products using a number of methods. One of these methods was recovering Silver in unrefined Gold because they were unable to refine Silver on the premises. The most recognized Canadian Silver coins, the Canadian Silver Maple Leafs, were first produced in 1988. In 2006, Silver was finally able to be refined on-site when the Royal Canadian Mint opened a state-of-the-art Silver refinery.

When buying Canadian coins it is important to understand numismatic value.
When buying Canadian coins and other Precious Metal coins, you will often hear the term numismatic value. Some people buy coins for their metal content, but generally, numismatic, or collector value strongly factor into the decision to buy coins. Numismatic value means coins are worth more and have a higher premium, either as a result of rarity, historical value, beauty or collectibility. Although coins that are collectible have a higher premium price over the Silver spot price, due to their collectibility, in the long run they can increase in value above and beyond the Silver spot price.
