Product Details
The MintDirect® Premier designation applies to coins received in the first 30 days of release from the mint. APMEX individually seals each MintDirect® Premier coin to ensure the authenticity after being removed directly from the mint capsules.

In partnership with PCGS, 2022 MintDirect® Premier Silver Lionfish now have the added benefit of qualifying for the sought-after PCGS FirstStrike® designation if submitted for grading in sealed packaging, bringing additional value to this popular program.

APMEX has partnered with PCGS, one of the most trusted names in numismatics, to further enhance the MintDirect® Premier program. This partnership with PCGS allows MintDirect® Premier with PCGS FirstStrike® 2022 Silver Lionfish in their sealed packaging to remain eligible for the FirstStrike® designation if submitted to PCGS for grading long after new FirstStrike®-eligible coins are typically off the market.

Each 2022 1 oz Silver Lionfish is placed in a non-reactive plastic polymer authentication card to protect your coin’s finish.

Only coins received in the first 30 days of release from the mint are eligible for the MintDirect® Premier designation. This provides assurance that these 30 gram Silver Pandas are among the best struck releases of the year.

Coin Highlights:
  • Contains 1 oz of .999 fine Silver.
  • Mintage of only 10,000.
  • Packaged in RF-welded plastic polymer case (2 1/2"x3 1/4"), protecting the coin's finish, with included authentication card.

The coin dies wear down over thousands of strikes, causing the details of the engraved die that transfers to the newly struck coin to flatten, diminishing the quality of the finished coin 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.

APMEX has designated all products delivered during the first 30 days of their issuance that go through the MintDirect® process as MintDirect® Premier. MintDirect® Premier may not be recognized by external grading services. APMEX will only have a limited number of MintDirect® Premier products each year.

APMEX created the MintDirect® process to assure each of these 2022 Silver Lionfish coins comes directly from the mint, guaranteeing these .999 fine Silver coins have not been searched or sorted since minting. MintDirect® is your symbol of guarantee that these coins were processed from tubes that come straight from mint-sealed boxes, exactly as they were delivered, providing peace-of-mind when buying, holding or selling.

APMEX individually seals each MintDirect® coin to ensure that the authenticity and condition of each coin is protected after they are removed directly from the mint tubes. Each coin is placed in a protective authentication card composed of a non-reactive plastic polymer to protect your coin’s finish.

The sealing process seals the coin within the authentication card, creating a tamper-evident package that will guarantee your investment indefinitely. 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.
