APMEX Announces Arrival of 2016 Silver Eagles, Becomes First Retailer to Ship


APMEX_5As the first retailer to ship the U.S. Mint’s 2016 American Silver Eagles, APMEX is pleased to announce the product line is in stock and shipping immediately. APMEX buys directly from the U.S. Mint, unlike many other retailers, and for this reason is able to provide MintDirect® 2016 Silver Eagles. This latest release marks the 30th anniversary of the American Eagle bullion program.APMEX_4

In order to accomplish the great undertaking of being the first retailer to ship 2016 Silver Eagles, APMEX employees gave up their Saturday and worked overtime to get all pre-sales out the door. “Interest continues to be at an all-time high as our pre-sale volume demonstrated,” APMEX CEO Ken Lewis said.

In 2015, the Silver American Eagles set another annual sales record. The demand hasn’t stopped there, as 2016 is already off to another record-setting year. The U.S. Mint has already recorded 3,500,000 Silver Eagles sold in 2016. Gold American Eagles have also seen high demand, with the U.S. Mint already selling 72,000 ounces of Gold American Eagles through the 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz and 1/10 oz options.

The other factor driving demand for this American Eagle release is the date. Since 2016 marks the 30th year of production for this ever-popular coin series, American Eagles have turned into one of the go-to options for a majority of Precious Metals investors.

“We are excited for the 2016 American Eagle launch. We are happy our direct relationship with the U.S. Mint allows us to get these coins into our customers’ hands first and at a reasonable price,” Lewis said.

All American Eagle coins are backed by the U.S. government, giving them strong appeal with Precious Metals investors because of their premium appreciation. As another year comes and goes, past coins in this series will continue to appreciate in value.

Scottsdale Mint Debuts First Coin in New Biblical Coin Series

The first installment of the Scottsdale Mint’s second Silver Biblical Coin Series, Daniel in the Lion’s Den, is now available at APMEX.Daniel in the lions den

The coin’s reverse is inspired by Daniel chapter 6, as depicted in Gustave Doré’s 1860s wood engraving, “Daniel in the Den of Lions.” The coin shows the miracle of Daniel, who survived a night in the lion’s den after he was arrested for praying. According to Scripture, an angel held the lion’s mouths closed and kept Daniel safe until morning. The fearsome scene is cast in 2 oz of .999 fine Silver, antiqued, brushed and distressed.

With a limited mintage of 1,499 each, the series is a unique collection with high numismatic value. Each coin comes with a certificate of authenticity featuring its minting specifications and a unique serial number that matches the laser-etched number on the coin. The Scottsdale Mint issues the coin by the authority of the island of Niue, where it is legal tender.

Coin with a Cause
A portion of proceeds from purchases of this series will support a faith-based human rights organization, the International Justice Mission (IJM). The non-profit operates all over the world to combat human trafficking. IJM conducts professional investigations of abuse allegations and provides relief and intervention for victims.
