Made my second APMEX purchase recently. With silver dropping to low $31 I couldn't resist not pulling the trigger.
I've wanted to buy 100 ounces and I did.
I purchased 10 ounces with them before and it was shipped via USPS.
This time it stated USPS again but it was shipped via FEDEX, and I received an email notification with tracking and received the package within 3 days.
The package was sealed very tightly and packed with cushioning.
Within the package they packed 2 boxes which again were sealed tight and packed with cushioning.
One contained 2 and another 3 rolls of 20 Ounces each.
They were sent in original mint rolls. I don't know if the mint seals their rolls in any specific way but these were not sealed with any kind of tape that would have been from the mint.
The same tape used to seal the boxes was used around the plastic mint rolls.
More than likely all the coins were searched.
I might use mint direct next time if silver keeps at this price or lower, what's $50-$100 when there are much bigger gains to be made in the future.
Overall great experience. I'm using the APMEX boxes to store all the tubes as well as my previously purchased bullion.
104 Ounces now, plenty more to go!
