APMEX Announces 2018 Gold and Silver Eagles Now In Stock and Shipping
APMEX, the nation’s largest Precious Metals e-retailer, is pleased to announce the 2018 Gold and Silver American Eagles are now in stock and ready to ship. 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 new American Eagle coins.
To accomplish APMEX’s goal of being one of the first retailers to ship 2018 Gold Eagles and Silver Eagles to customers, employees worked overtime hours and even volunteered one Saturday to help ship all pre-orders. This included preparing single flips, MintDirect® Premier Singles and MintDirect® Premier Tubes, which provide a range of options for the collecting and investing needs of all customers.
“We are excited for the arrival of the 2018 Gold and Silver Eagles and are working to ship them to our customers as soon as possible, thanks to our direct relationship with the U.S. Mint,” APMEX CEO Ken Lewis said. “Service is one of our core values and we strive to serve our customers every day. Working on a Saturday to prepare and ship thousands of coins is just one example of our employees willing to take that extra step for our customers.”
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 of 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 in sizes ranging from 1/10 oz – 1 oz.
As one of only a handful of authorized purchasers from the U.S. Mint, APMEX is able to purchase 2018 Silver and Gold Eagle coins directly and offer them to their customers worldwide. Shop the full selection of 2018 American Eagles today and be among the first to receive these popular releases.
