Rule Britannia: The Great London Getaway Winner Announced!


In June 2015, APMEX and the Royal Mint in London launched The Great London Getaway Sweepstakes. We are excited to congratulate Wesley W. from Nevada on being selected as the winner! The contest ran from June 1 through June 30 and more than 4,600 people entered, by purchasing select Gold and Silver Royal Mint products or through online or mail-in entry.

This is the first year APMEX has teamed up with the Royal Mint for this type of event, and by all accounts it was a success. The Royal Mint produces some of the most recognizable and beautiful Precious Metals products, most notably their Britannia Coin Series. The Royal Mint was founded in 886 during the reign of Alfred the Great, and has since become one of the leading mints in the world.

“We were excited to work with such a prestigious mint for this special sweepstakes,” APMEX Vice President of Marketing Jean-Marx Mantilla said. “The Royal Mint has the same commitment of excellence to the product they produce that APMEX has to our service we provide. We’re proud to offer the opportunity for such a special trip.”

Wesley and his wife are both excited to take their trip within the next year. The trip, valued at over $7,500.00, includes roundtrip airfare and accommodations for five nights at a four-star hotel in London. In addition to an exclusive VIP tour of the Royal Mint, Wesley and his wife will delight in historic sites of London, such as Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben and many more. With $1,000.00 USD spending money included as part of the prize, memories are sure to be made.
