Private Mints vs. Government Mints
APMEX carries a wide assortment of Precious Metals from both private and public mints. There are factors that determine private mints vs. sovereign mints, but APMEX extends the quality of these mint products back to you. Public or sovereign mints make legally tendered bullion for that country. The branding of each product is specific to the country of origin and must maintain a high metal content associated with each bullion. Private mints do not attribute a face value on their bullion and the branding can be as unique to the mint as they would like it to be.
Both private and public mints hold a high level of value with each piece of bullion. APMEX ensures each Precious Metals bullion piece is quality assured and offers these pieces at competitive prices. All private and public mints have a strong relationship to their country, making them great mints to purchase from. APMEX returns that value back to you, having developed great relationships with these mints, as evidenced by our reviews and customer satisfaction.
Many of these mints were born out of necessity while some of them were born to produce extra products out of overflow of metals. Every mint is unique and has a special flair and production value that sets them apart. Mints are found all over the world, filling different purposes important to the financial furtherance of an individual or country. Public or government mints include the U.S. Mint, Royal Canadian Mint, British Mint, China Mint and the South African Mint.
