The U.S. Mint does not sell its bullion coins directly to the public. Instead, they distribute their coins to only a handful of authorized purchasers who then sell the coins to the public. As one of these authorized purchasers, APMEX is able to get coins direct from the U.S. Mint and pass them along to you.

The history of the 2016 1 oz Silver American Eagle

2016 1 oz Silver American Eagles share in the rich history of all of the Silver American Eagles minted by the U.S. Mint since 1986. The obverse of these Silver coins features a depiction of sculptor Adolph A Weinman’s famous Walking Liberty design seen first on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar in 1916. Buying Silver coins that link to past American coinage is like holding a tangible piece of history in your hands. Since first strike, the Silver bullion coins have been available in both proof and bullion finishes; and, in 2006 the U.S. Mint started to also offer the uncirculated versions of the Silver coins.

I never leave reviews...ever. So this is as important to me as it should be to you. I expect companies to already be courteous and to offer the product in exchange for my money. So what spurred me to write this review. After dealing with Apmex for several months, I cannot find any area of the customer experience that needs improvement. They are consistently outstanding. Regarding this item, buy as many as you can afford. You won't regret it.

The coin looks great. The one I got looked like it was in absolutely mint condition, no hairline scratch, no cotton glove scratch, and no mishandling scratches from the mint. It was just absolutely perfect. I believe this is the best bang for your buck in silver, rather than purchasing Junk Silver that might be worn down and reduced of its original silver content. Invest in this now!! Thank you APMEX!
