MintDirect® + PCGS

APMEX MintDirect® Premier With PCGS FirstStrike®

APMEX has formed a strategic alliance with PCGS, one of the most respected third-party grading services in the industry, to elevate our MintDirect® Premier program. PCGS has meticulously scrutinized and validated our procedure for securing and storing coins from mints around the world. APMEX stores coins from the first 30 days of release in a separate vault location, sealed in their mint packaging. These coins are the only ones eligible for use in Mint Direct Premier with PCGS FirstStrike products.

Exclusive APMEX + PCGS Partnership

The inception of this program was marked by the 2020 Silver Eagles, and since then, we have broadened our scope to encompass other beloved programs from reliable mints across the globe. Our alliance with PCGS enhances the value of the sought-after MintDirect® Premier products. Even long after new FirstStrike®-eligible coins typically exit the market, MintDirect® Premier products, if kept in their sealed packaging and submitted to PCGS for grading, retain eligibility for the FirstStrike® designation. Prior to this, to qualify for such a designation, coins were required to be preserved in sealed monster boxes at secure, PCGS-sanctioned storage sites before the FirstStrike® deadline. Shop this exciting collaboration now.

About PCGS FirstStrike®

The PCGS FirstStrike® program designates coins issued in the first 30 days of the Mint's release. This designation not only adds value, but takes modern coin collecting to another level with multiple mint releases each year. Being limited to these initial groups of coins puts a finite limit on the potential population of these coins, adding to their collectible appeal.
