2018 Gold and Silver Eagles Now Available to Pre-order at APMEX
APMEX, the nation’s largest Precious Metals e-retailer, is thrilled to announce the 2018 Gold and Silver American Eagles are now available to pre-order. As an authorized purchaser, APMEX is able to buy Gold and Silver Eagle coins directly from the U.S. Mint, meaning APMEX customers will be among the first to receive their coins in January.
American Eagle coins are always among the most anticipated releases of the year, and this year is no different. APMEX offers these widely popular coins as single flips, MintDirect® Singles, MintDirect® Tubes and sealed Monster Boxes. These different options offer a range of benefits to customers for their collecting and investing needs.
“While we strive to carry a wide assortment of unique products from around the world, we are always pleased to provide our customers with some of the most beloved coins that any collector or investor can appreciate,” APMEX CEO Ken Lewis said. “For more than 30 years, Gold and Silver American Eagles have been a staple of millions of coin collections. We are proud that, for more than 15 of those years, we have been able to provide these iconic pieces to customers around the world.”
The American Silver Eagle is the most popular Silver bullion coin in the world. Originally released in 1986, the Silver Eagle is the only 1 oz Silver bullion coin with purity, content and weight guaranteed by the United States government. The historic obverse design is based on Adolph A. Weinman’s 1916 Walking Liberty Half Dollar, making the Silver American Eagle a favorite by many.
The Gold American Eagle holds perhaps even more history, with the original design first appearing on American Gold coins more than 110 years ago. The obverse is adapted from Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ iconic Double Eagle design of 1907 featuring Lady Liberty carrying a torch and olive branch. The 2018 Gold American Eagles are available to pre-order in sizes ranging from 1/10 oz – 1 oz.
As a special offer to introduce the 2018 American Eagles, now through December 8, any purchase of 2018 Gold or Silver Eagles means an automatic entry for weekly sweepstakes offers. Through November 17, APMEX is giving away four 2018 1/10 oz Gold Eagles. No purchase necessary. See the official rules for more details.
As one of only a handful of authorized purchasers from the U.S. Mint, APMEX is able to purchase 2018 Silver and Gold American coins directly and offer them to their customers worldwide. The 2018 Silver and Gold American Eagles will be available to ship to APMEX customers beginning January 17, 2018.
