Buffalo's up to $28.89 now, so OP's deal is NOW better.

yeah, I think this is a good price if you are looking for SAE but not looking for a huge quantity, since $27 shipped is hard to beat, even at APMEX's store.

I know nothing about coins and precious metals, are these knock off coins? They don't show the back of the coin which should have the W for the mint.

APMEX is a very reputable company and a huge metal distributor (check them out). No way they risk everything by selling some fakes.
The price went down to ~$23 per coin this morning...lasted only a half hour or so. I picked up 25 ASEs to put on one cc, and was going back to get a bunch more, and by then it was dead. Anyone else grab some then?

APMEX is probably the premier seller of silver/gold coins. I used to buy all my coins and bullion there...until they started charging sales tax for NY orders. That extra 8% almost always makes their prices non-competitive. But I would never hesitate to buy from them only because I thought something they sell might be fake. APMEX is very trustworthy.
No, he is saying there is a $5 discount per 5 coin package you buy. And also he is saying that you can use a credit card for the purchase, for no additional fees.

this is the bullion version of the coin. its value is basically tied to the spot price of silver plus some arbitrary dealer mark up. the "uncirculated" version sold by the us mint has a "W" mint mark (west point mint) and is the "collector's" version of the coin. it's value is tied to what collectors are willing to pay, based on the final mintage volume for the coin. the lower mintage years command higher value. there are also other versions of the silver eagle for collectors: proof, reverse proof, san Francisco minted coins, etc
these coins are the "cheapest" available silver eagle coins available and can be bought/sold easily because the value is dependent on the spot price of silver, and the coins are universally recognized.
i collect all types of American silver eagles but buy these to give as gifts (along with a coin holder box) to commemorate occasions. i give them to friends when their babies are born, when their kids graduate from school, when they become eagle scouts (highest rank in boys scouts). this is a very good price but if the price of silver drops the value of these coins will drop.
