I bought 10 of these, and they were exactly as described, to wit: I received 6 of 1979 date and 4 of 1980, 1 was in MS 60 or 61 in my estimation, most were AU, one was heavily toned on the reverse. I had bought 2 of these years earlier from another dealer, and wanted these 10 to have an entire troy pound of sterling silver coins. As far as I know, these are the only modern large coins that were minted in sterling silver. You get a full ounce of silver, since the coin itself weighs 33.625 g, and that is stamped on each one. These arrived in 4 days, and packaged securely and discreetly, another excellent shipment from Apmex. All 6 of the 1979 had the scale on the reverse pointing directly to the "U" in "UNA"; according to pictures supplied on Apmex's website, these would be Type 2. If so, I appreciate that little bonus. Completely happy with my purchase.

I must have gotten a dud, as the coin I received certainly wasn't close to AU. What I received was in similar condition as some of the more heavily circulated silver one pesos I have. Lots of scratches and heavy discoloring, especially on one side.

I knew I was taking a gamble on this one, but was hoping for a collector quality piece (as I wasn't purchasing it as bullion). Next time I want to go this route I'll just hit the online auctions so I can see exactly what I'm getting.

I'm sure this route works great for a lot of people, I just wasn't a lucky one. Not worth the time or energy to exchange it.

            Received my order a day earlier than anticipated. The 1979 coin I received was easily AU, and was the Type II variant. Big in the hand, small on the wallet. It may not be the most beautiful one ounce silver coin Mexican coinage has to offer, but it fills a niche in the old collection.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Arrived in an impenetrable box, as I mentioned earlier, a day before scheduled. Wrapping glued tightly in. Had to break out the old scissorts to gain access.

                        Ordered two of these balance scale onzas. Received a 1979 and a 1980 in absolutely stunning condition. The 1979 actually turned out to be the rarer Type II variant. Very pleased. Will order again.

                            The coin is well struck. The details jump off the face of the coin. Thank you again for another addition to my stack. Will purchase again soon!!

                                These are some of the favorite pieces in my collection. I believe they are the world's first one ounce coin, after the 1949 printing of the same design.
