I use Apmex American Precious Metals Exchange for mint direct items. I try to pay via check to keep the price down. I usually get screwed quality wise when I buy from them (not mint direct). What i mean is that often the silver is all scratched up which I dislike or its got fingerprints on the rounds. sometimes the prints dont come off. Overall they are decent site. I have bought alot from them. There is good and bad- Prices are good, packaging is great, website is good. The Bad-Payment options, shipping prices. I still use them..
APMEX is great,, I have ordered much Gold and silver coins as well as a few silver bars and never had any problem,,,their prices are great,http://www.apmex.com/Category/117/2011_Holiday_Silver_Rounds_and_Bars.aspx
