About the APMEX MintDirect® Premier with PCGS FirstStrike® Program
Published on 12/23/2020 by APMEX
APMEX has extended our partnership with PCGS, one of the most trusted names in numismatics, to enhance the MintDirect® Premier program further.
This program began with the 2020 Silver Eagles but has expanded to include other popular programs from trusted mints worldwide. This partnership with PCGS brings added value to the popular MintDirect® Premier products. MintDirect® Premier products in their sealed packaging will remain eligible for the FirstStrike® designation if submitted to PCGS for grading long after new FirstStrike®-eligible coins are typically gone from the market.
Previously, coins had to be stored in sealed monster boxes in secure, PCGS-approved storage locations before the FirstStrike® deadline to qualify for this designation.
Now included in the APMEX MintDirect® Premier with PCGS FirstStrike® Program:2021 Gold, Silver and Platinum Eagles
2021 Gold and Silver Pandas
2021 Gold and Silver Maple Leafs
2021 Silver Britannias
2021 Silver Philharmonics
PCGS has rigorously reviewed and confirmed the process we have in place to secure coins from mints worldwide and proudly stands by our products being received within 30 days of initial release and stored in a way that ensures the unadulterated condition of the coins.
As the leader in third-party authentication and grading, PCGS welcomes new collectors to take advantage of APMEX-sealed monster boxes, mini monster boxes, tubes and single pack products and enjoy direct submission privileges with FirstStrike® eligibility.
PCGS is also offering free Silver Collectors Club Memberships, valued at $69, on all submissions of sealed APMEX MintDirect® Premier with PCGS FirstStrike® tubes and boxes, making it an ideal choice for beginners and advanced collectors alike.
