Only coins received in the first 30 days of release from the U.S. Mint are eligible for the MintDirect® Premier designation. This provides assurance that these 1 oz Platinum Eagles are among the best struck releases of the year.
The 2016 Platinum Eagle is just the second bullion release in the series since production was suspended in 2008.
APMEX individually seals each MintDirect® coin to ensure the authenticity and condition after the coins are removed directly from the mint boxes. Each coin is placed in a protective, non-reactive plastic polymer authentication card to protect your coin’s finish. This process seals the coin within the card, creating a tamper-evident package that guarantees your investment indefinitely. Learn more about the tamper-evident process here.
- Each coin contains 1 oz of .9995 fine Platinum.
- Packaged in an RF-welded plastic polymer case (2 1/2" x 3 1/4"), protecting the coin's finish, with included authentication card.
- Multiples of 10 and 20 will come housed in a clear plastic clamshell box sealed with a plastic band.
- Each authentication card features the MintDirect® Premier designation, ensuring it comes directly from the U.S. Mint to you.

Bullion Platinum American Eagle coins were produced from 1997 until 2008, when the Great Recession forced the U.S. Mint to suspend production. Though the Proof Platinum Eagles were continuously minted, the bullion version was not produced again until 2014, selling just 16,900 Platinum Eagles.
Because each new year brings new dies, APMEX has designated all products delivered by the U.S. Mint within the first 30 days go through the MintDirect® process as MintDirect® Premier. This designation may not be recognized by external grading services. APMEX will only have a limited number of MintDirect® Premier products each year.
APMEX has created a process to guarantee these coins are direct from the U.S. Mint to you to ensure that our customers receive only authentic U.S. Mint coins. MintDirect® is your symbol of guarantee that these coins were processed from tubes that come straight from mint-sealed "Monster Boxes", exactly as they were delivered, providing peace-of-mind when buying, holding or selling.
APMEX individually seals each MintDirect® coin to ensure that the authenticity and condition of each coin is protected after they are removed directly from the mint boxes. Each coin is placed in a protective authentication card composed of a non-reactive plastic polymer to protect your coin’s finish.
The sealing process seals the coin within the authentication card, creating a tamper-evident package that will guarantee your investment indefinitely. If the tamper-evident package has been opened in any way, you will know it. After the process is completed, the coin in the tamper-evident package is removed from the machine and checked to ensure that the quality of the packaging meets our exacting standards. You now have a finished MintDirect® Premier 2016 1 oz Platinum American Eagle Single.
By using this process, APMEX can guarantee that the coins you receive are authentic and in the exact condition as they were when they left the United States Mint. The MintDirect® process gives investors confidence in their purchase, knowing that they can buy, hold or sell an authentic coin — guaranteed.
