The Cutty Sark Name:
The historic ship was named by Jock Willis, the original ship owner who choose the name based on Robert Burns poem, Tam O’Shanter. Interestingly enough, witches are thought to be unable to cross water, which further adds to the allure and mystic of this beautiful ships unique and interesting history.
The Cutty Sark History:
The history of this clipper ship started in 1869, the year it was built. It’s first voyage was in 1870, where it set sails for Shanghai, China during the China tea trade. The Cutty Sark is known for its record breaking speeds during the late 1800s where it could transport goods in less than a month. Flash forward to the 1900s where the ship was later restored by and used for training cadets. In 1954, the ship was brought into Greenwich where further restorations were made and later opened as a local attraction in 1957 where in continues to bring amazement and joy to its fellow attractors.
Because each new year brings new dies, APMEX has designated all products delivered by the mint during the first 30 days of their issuance that go through the MintDirect® process as MintDirect® Premier.
The sealing process seals the coin within the authentication card, creating a tamper-evident package that will guarantee your investment indefinitely. If the tamper-evident package has been opened in any way, you will know it. After the process is completed, the coin in the tamper-evident package is removed from the machine and checked to ensure that the quality of the packaging meets our exacting standards. You now have a finished 2021 BIOT Silver Cutty Sark Reverse Frosted MintDirect® Premier Single.
By using this process, APMEX can guarantee that the coins you receive are authentic and in the exact condition as they were when they left the mint. The MintDirect® process gives investors confidence in their purchase, knowing that they can buy, hold or sell an authentic coin — guaranteed.
Note: The MintDirect® process does not guarantee protection from spotting or tarnishing that normally occurs in chemically active metals, such as Gold, Silver and Platinum.
