January of every year, the United States Mint is required to deliver coins that carry the date of the new year. Accordingly, the dies used to strike the coins from the prior year are destroyed and new dies are engraved, prepared and deployed to strike coins for the new year.
Because the coin dies wear down over thousands of strikes, the details of the engraved die that transfers to the newly struck coin begins to flatten, and the quality of the finished coin diminishes below standards. At this point, the dies are replaced. For each minting press, new dies may be required multiple times each year. Once the new dies are installed, the strike quality (the detail transferred to the newly struck coin) returns to its maximum. There is no public notice that dies are changed, and each minting press changes dies at different times required by die wear.
Each new year, the U.S. Mint engraves new dies prominently featuring the date of the new year. As APMEX is a U.S. Mint authorized purchaser, its personnel have observed the die making process at the U.S. Mint at West Point, New York.
Because each new year brings new dies, APMEX has designated all MintDirect® products delivered by the U.S. Mint in January of each year as MintDirect® Premier. Each MintDirect® Premier tube is an unopened, sealed original mint tube that is individually labeled, designating the coins as Premier. The MintDirect® Premier designation may not be recognized by external grading services. APMEX will only have a limited number of MintDirect® Premier products each year.
All MintDirect® products delivered in any month other than January will carry the usual MintDirect® label designating that the original U.S. Mint tube has not been opened since the coins were packaged at the Mint and accordingly are unsearched and unsorted. MintDirect® is a process exclusive to APMEX that guarantees these 2017 1 oz Gold Eagles come directly from the U.S. Mint and have remained unopened.
