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 coins for the new year.

Because each new year brings new dies, APMEX has designated all products delivered by the U.S. Mint in January that 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 Silver 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.

The history of the Silver Eagle coin

The AmericanSilver Eagle coin program was developed as way to incrementally reduce Silver holdings at the Defense National Stockpile, rather than a massive sell off which could lead to a dramatic drop in the price of Silver. Amendments to the Liberty Coin Act allowed for the sale of 1 oz Silver coins, effective October 1, 1985, although no Silver coins could be issued or sold before September 1, 1986. The public could buy Silver coins from the U.S. Mint in late 1986, with the first American Eagle coin struck in San Francisco on October 29, 1986. The 2016 Silver American Eagle is part of the Silver American Eagle’s rich history which started 30 years before, when Secretary of the Treasury James A. Baker III participated in the striking ceremony at the San Francisco Assay Office.

Why invest in the 2016 Silver American Eagle?

The Silver Eagle coin is a respected worldwide favorite among collectors and investors alike, due to its beautiful Walking Liberty design, Silver content and backing by the U.S. Mint. This 2016 Silver American Eagle is a must-have, as it is MintDirect, received by APMEX within the first 30 days of release from the U.S. Mint. When you buy Silver coins that are MintDirect, the Silver bullion coins are removed from U.S Mint boxes and sealed immediately, ensuring authenticity and pristine condition. This 1 oz Silver bullion coin that contains .999 fine Silver is seen by many as an ideal way to balance their investment portfolios.

When you buy Silver coins, you pay the premium Silver price

It is not possible to buy Silver coins, bars or rounds at the Silver spot price, which is the price of Silver prior to fabrication. Any 1 oz Silver coin or even Silver bars, have a premium over the Silver spot price. The cost of this Silver Eagle coin and all Precious Metal bullion incorporate the cost of fabrication, distribution, small dealer fees and any numismatic or collector value, known as the premium price. For example, this 2016 Silver American Eagle will only have a slightly higher premium over spot price because it has little numismatic value even though collectors do buy this beautiful coin. Other U.S. Mint Silver coins, like the 1799 Draped Bust dollar, will have an even greater premium over spot price of Silver due to its historical value and rarity.

Iconic, Patriotic, and a Great Value

By  James

from San Jose, CA

5.0

Underneath the most beautiful word in the English language, the personification of liberty is sculpted to gracefully stride the obverse of this coin toward an ever-dawning sun. Personally viewing the masterful engraving of the dress and flag adorning the woman is in itself worth the purchase price. Moreover, the eagle on the reverse of the coin artfully depicts America's strength and clarion call for peaceful unity. Assured to be struck by a fresh die, APMEX seals the 2016 1 oz Silver Eagle (MintDirect® Premier Single) in packaging that handsomely displays and well protects this iconic specie.

Determine whether you want to buy Silver coins or Silver bars when investing in Silver bullion.

When investing in Silver, do you buy Silver coins or Silver bars? Many investors prefer to buy 1 oz Silver bullion bars, focusing on the raw Silver content and securing the lowest premium over spot price possible. Many investors, however, buy Silver Eagle coins, and other U.S. Mint coins, for the opportunity to own a little piece of history, looking beyond Silver value and focusing on the coin’s rarity, historical value and beauty. Investors also like the 2016 Silver American Eagle, because while it does have a small numismatic value, it is an investment-grade coin that is backed by the U.S. Mint.
