Added a few of these coins to my collection. I would strongly reccommend anyone wanting to add coins. Maple Leaf is accepted the world over. Thanks APMEX for your exemplary service.

APMEX shipped quickly and the maple leafs are beautiful. I am collecting these for the silver value only, but I figure it doesn't hurt to get them in the nicest condition, which is why I went with the MintDirect tubes. If anyone is curious about the MintDirect process, it is simply a serialized sticker placed on the tube, and some clear heat shrink over that. It really isn't any kind of security system as the clear plastic can easily be removed and replaced, or even heated to soften it, the lid removed, and then heated again to shrink. So in effect, you are paying APMEX an extra ten dollars to audit itself. However, I do have complete faith that APMEX lives up to the promise so you make up your own mind if it is worth it or not.
