Silver Archangels

The National Bank of Ukraine Archangel Michael coin series began in 2011 and has increasingly gained in popularity. While other bullion coins have unlimited mintages, often into the multi-millions, the 1 oz Silver Archangel Michael has averaged under 20,000 coins per year until 2017 when the mintage was increased to 30,000 coins. Compare this to the popular 1 oz Silver Eagle, which saw a final mintage of 47,000,000 coins produced in 2015. The Silver Archangel Michael’s limited mintage allows for a higher return on your investment in the future.

Investor Advantages:

  • Popular annual bullion releases from the National Bank of Ukraine that feature an exceptional design of the Taxiarch Archangel Michael with his wings spread and his sword drawn.
  • One of just a few legal tender bullion coins released by European national banks.
  • In 2011, the first year of issue, the 1 oz Silver Archangel Michael coin’s mintage maxed out at only 10,000 coins.
  • Each coin is packaged in an individual plastic capsule to protect your investment in shipping and handling.

Benefit from Long-Term Value with BU Archangel Silver Coins

The Ukrainian Silver Archangel Michael dates back to 2011, when the National Bank of Ukraine first issued this striking coin honoring the Archangel Michael, who is seen as the honored protector of the Ukrainian capital and estate. In his legacy, the National Bank of Ukraine commemorated an elaborate coin with acute craftsmanship. Its distinctive characteristics and scarce availability increased collector demand all over the world. The Archangel Michael is one of the most honorable biblical characters, and is well-known for winning a victory over evil and being a patron of warriors, the sick and the suffering.

On all issues in this series, the obverse displays the Coat of Arms of Ukraine with “National Bank of Ukraine” inscribed in Ukrainian. The Silver fineness, weight and denomination all appear along the rim of the coin, while the date is seen below the National Bank of Ukraine emblem.

Since the National Bank of Ukraine issues this Silver coin, it is backed by the Ukrainian government. The National Bank of Ukraine dates back to 1918, uniting all offices of the former State bank, Noble Land Bank and Peasant Land Bank. A Ukrainian Silver Archangel offers the ideal opportunity for both investment and collectibility from this bank.

Due to the high premium from the manufacturer and relatively difficult sourcing of previous issues, the backdated mintages of these Silver Archangels have a strong secondary market.


Premium Appreciation Over Time

This Premium Appreciation Over Time matrix gives you a better idea of how the Silver Archangel Coin is trending with approximate value increases.* The percentage of change is an indicator of increased value over time.

All premiums are dollars over the spot price.


The additional cost of a coin or bullion item, over and above the spot or metal price of the Precious Metal contained in the coin. The premium includes the costs of fabrication, distribution and a minimal dealer fee. Rare coins carry an additional premium representing numismatic value, which is based on scarcity, quality, demand and intangible factors.

Over time (usually at least 3-5 years after release), the premium of a particular coin may increase due to limited availability or other factors such as demand and quality of the coin.

Introductory Premium

APMEX’s initial premium above the spot or melt price at the time of a coin’s release.

Current Premium

The premium or additional cost of a bullion coin above and beyond the metal value of the Precious Metal it contains.

Grading and Warranties

Our company uses the numerical Mint State (MS) grading system, which rates uncirculated coins from MS-60 to MS-70.

Typically, the higher the grade, the better the quality of the coin and in turn, the higher the value. The grade assigned to a coin reflects its strike, luster, marks, scratches and overall eye appeal. Grading is a subjective art and depends on the opinion of the person grading the coin or currency. Thus, grading can and does vary from numismatic coin firm to numismatic coin firm, from grading service to grading service, and from expert to expert. A difference of one grade (e.g., MS-64 to MS-65) can result in a significant change in the valuation of a numismatic coin or currency. Grades and descriptions of numismatic coins and currency are opinions, not statements of fact or guarantees, and are based on standards and interpretations in place at the time of grading.

When you acquire a coin or currency from APMEX that is independently graded by a third-party grading service such as Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) or Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), APMEX relies entirely on the expertise/determination of the grading service. In addition, we rely upon definitions provided by these independent grading services, including definitions of such terms as PCGS' "First Strike®" which refers to coins packaged and delivered by the U.S. Mint in the thirty (30)-day period following the initial sales date of a new product. We do not re-grade or independently evaluate the product's grade in its sealed holder. APMEX reserves the right to deliver independently graded coins that have been graded by an independent grading service of APMEX's choice such as PCGS or NGC. APMEX guarantees that the numismatic coins and Precious Metals it sells are genuine. APMEX expressly disclaims any other warranties with respect to coins or Precious Metals, express or implied, including the implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose. See our User Agreement http://www.apmex.com/useragreement for a full disclaimer of warranties.

Premium Appreciation

You should know that different market factors may influence the price of a specific Precious Metal or the associated premium. For example, the price of a numismatic coin may be affected by such factors as grade, scarcity and marketplace demand, while the price of a bullion coin is closely tied to the spot price for the metal content of the coin as well as year-specific mintages. Past performance and growth projections for one type of Precious Metal may not apply to other types of Precious Metals that APMEX may offer.

Holding Period

Our experience suggests coins of specific quality or scarcity that have demonstrated historical premium appreciation tend to do so at least 3 to 5 years after the coin was produced. Market conditions and other factors will always impact the future value for coins, and therefore premium appreciation should never be considered to be guaranteed.

Our Prices

Our prices are set internally based upon our analysis of a variety of factors and are not necessarily tied to the prices quoted by any other organization. Prices are subject to change based on market conditions.
  APMEX acts as a dealer and generally owns the Precious Metals it buys and sells.


All investments involve risk and Precious Metals are no exception. The Precious Metals market is speculative, unregulated and volatile, and prices for these items may rise or fall over time.

APMEX generally classifies coins as bullion, semi-numismatic and numismatic. Some coins may fall within more than one category, depending on their specific grade or condition. Other dealers and organizations may define these terms or classify these coins differently.

Precious Metals generally have a premium above their melt value. Premiums may increase or decrease based upon current market conditions such as supply and demand. Changes in premiums may affect a Precious Metal’s pricing beyond changes in spot prices.

Precious Metals can go down as well as up in value. These items may not be suitable for everyone. APMEX does not determine the suitability of any specific person to purchase Precious Metals. You should consult with your independent financial advisor regarding whether such an investment is right for you. You should not acquire any products from APMEX if you are not competent or qualified to make your own financial decisions. You should obtain a thorough understanding of the Precious Metals products before you acquire these products as a collector or investor.

The investment value of Precious Metals depends in large part on the price you pay. If you are acquiring any of APMEX's products as an investment, you should evaluate its current market value, potential for appreciation and liquidity, and consult independent sources regarding these factors. APMEX does not guarantee that any client will be able to sell Precious Metals at the original purchase price or a higher price in the future.

APMEX is not responsible for any changes in tax laws or other statutes which may affect any profit or salability of your coins or currency.
