APMEX is promoting its new CoinGrade+™ feature by offering a chance to win a 2017 1 oz Silver Swan, graded MS-70 PCGS First Strike.
CoinGrade+ allows APMEX.com visitors to shop for more than 5,000 certified coins with up-to-date information like coin I.D., grade, mintmark, population, mintage and how many coins graded higher. The data is synced daily with Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) and Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC).
The Silver Swan bullion coin launched last month. Produced by The Perth Mint of Australia and limited to 25,000 pieces, the 99.99% pure silver coin quickly sold out. Its reverse design depicts a swan swimming on the surface of the water. Adding to the attractive design, the water appears running below the coin’s inscription and to its rim.
"We were very pleased with the quick sell-thru rate on this new coin. The combination of the design, the limited mintage and The Perth Mint’s history created tremendous worldwide demand," said Mark Yoshimura, APMEX COO.
The 2017 1 oz Silver Swan is the first in an expected series with annually varying designs like The Perth Mint’s Koala and Kookaburra bullion coins. According to CoinGrade+ date, 626 of them have been graded MS-70 by PCGS.
"The very low population of the first-ever MS-70 Silver Swan will appeal to our investor/collector oriented customers, and we look forward to presenting this unique opportunity to the marketplace," Yoshimura said.
The contest is open from May 2 through May 16, 2017. For a chance to win a MS-70 Silver Swan coin, visit APMEX.com/CoinGrade and scroll down to find the official rules and online entry form. No purchase is necessary.
