Low Mintage Eagle

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

Correctly advertised as brilliant uncirculated. The lowest mintage of this coin guarantees collectibility. Very nice!

Not BU

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

I bought two of these ’96 BU ASE coins. They both had blemishes (large splotches), one on the obverse, the other on the reverse. One also had scratches. I exchanged them. Of the replacements I received, one has scratches & nicks on both obverse & reverse. The other has rub marks & scratches on the obverse and scratches on the reverse. Small, but noticeable. Not as bad as the first coins but still not what one would expect when purchasing a BU advertised coin.

Right on the Money!

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

I ordered seven coins and received them in flips. There were no fingerprints or tarnish, just the normal wear and tear dings. I inspected them carefully and compared them to my new 2015s and found they looked pretty good for their age. It would be nice if they came right from the tube as they've been passed around a little over 19 years. Again, they look pretty good for their age.

Great Key date in the raw!

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

I wanted to start a collection of Silver Eagles, although I have a few graded coins, I wanted to start looking for coins in the raw to complete my collection without spending a small fortune. APMEX makes this possible with a wide selection of Silver Eagles graded or not at very reasonable prices. This coin met my expectations, as well as all the other coins that have purchased.


  • Pros
  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Mint Condition
  • Bottom Line
  • Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Poor Condition, Large Fingerprint

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

The product came with a large obvious fingerprint on the obverse which I believe certainly does not qualify it as a BU coin. If I am mistaken please correct me. Regardless, I expected better and am incredibly disappointed.

  • Poor Condition

Merchant response: Corey: This product should have arrived in BU condition and the fact that is didn't is unfortunate. This is certainly not our "norm". We expect more from ourselves and so do you. We'll make this right. Customer service is reaching out to you.

Disappointed

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

I have to echo another poor condition review. My coin looks bad. I expect handling marks but this is crazy. I expected more APMEX. 3 out of the 4 items of my order were as described but this coin was just sub-par. I would have expected this coin if I bought a "Cull, Damaged, Etc"...but I did not. Maybe I have to high of standards.

Merchant response: Kyle: First off, thank you for your purchase. We know you have a choice when it comes to buying Precious Metals and we're honored you chose APMEX. In regards to your 1996 Eagle, we'd completely agree, UNACCEPTABLE. You should have high standards for us, we have them for ourselves, and it's our goal to meet and exceed them with each purchase. Bottom line, we messed up and we're going to take care of this. Our Customer Service team has been alerted of this issue and will be reaching out to you soon to make this right. We apologize for this. Thanks for your review.
