MintDirect® Premier + PCGS FirstStrike®
APMEX has partnered with PCGS to add the promise of the PCGS FirstStrike® designation to this MintDirect® Premier product. After reviewing and vetting the MintDirect® process, PCGS acknowledges these 2021 MintDirect® Premier Gold Eagles as meeting their strict requirements for FirstStrike® eligibility if they are submitted for grading in their original sealed packaging.
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 MintDirect® Premier + PCGS FirstStrike® 2021 Gold American Eagle.
By using this process, APMEX guarantees the coins you receive are authentic and in the exact condition they were leaving the United States Mint. The MintDirect® process gives investors a certainty 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.
New 2021 Gold Eagle Design
The United States Mint has unveiled the new reverse designs for the 2021 American Eagle Gold coins. 2021 marks the 35th Anniversary of the American Eagle Coin program, and the new designs will begin appearing on these coins in mid-year 2021. Mint Artistic Infusion Program (AIP) designer Jennie Norris created the new Gold coin design that was sculpted by Mint Medallic Artist Renata Gordon. The new reverse design depicts a bold, up-close portrait of an eagle. The obverse has been revised with additional detail from the original design by Augustus Saint-Gaudens to enhance this classic image.
