Have you ever held nearly $500,000 in your hand? One lucky APMEX customer has!
Last year’s Ultimate Canadian Getaway Sweepstakes winner, John, recently shared with us details of his “once-in-a-lifetime” trip to the Royal Canadian Mint. He and his wife received a four-day trip to Montreal and Ottawa, home of the mint, courtesy of APMEX.
The couple found Ottawa to be a charming city of historic sites, personal and similar to Washington D.C. They stayed at the four-star Starwood Westin Hotel, which they said “was perfect,” as was the visit to the Royal Canadian Mint. The two enjoyed a VIP tour led by senior personnel. True to Canadian form, John reported that all of the staff, including top executives, were friendly and welcoming.
Their tour included viewing the production of bullion and numismatics, receiving a personal commemorative coin and holding a 400 oz Gold bar, which was worth around $460,000 at the time. Talk about investments you hold!
Speaking on the magnitude of the mint, John declared, “Totally amazing, a mind-blowing experience seeing that much Gold and Silver all over the place. It’ll rock your world.”
In addition to the mint, John and Melanie recommended visiting the National Gallery of Canada, one of the country’s premier art galleries.
And good news! APMEX may be able to rock your world with your own “absolutely incredible” experience. The 2016 Ultimate Canadian Getaway Sweepstakes launches March 7. More details to come, so stay tuned for the official announcement.
