Sunshine Mint is a North American-based company and has become one of the most well-known mints in the world. It is the number one supplier of blank silver coins for the US Mint. These blanks, as you might have guessed, are then turned into the silver coins minted by the US Mint each and every year. As one of the US Mint's top suppliers, Sunshine Mint is one of the most trusted mints in all of the precious metals industry.
Sunshine gold bars vary in size and design though every bar contains the Sunshine mintmark, as well as the one troy ounce and .9999 purity indication. Also present on Sunshine gold bars is a security marking which helps you guarantee that the bar you have is 100% authentic.
On the reverse of this gold bar is a small circle that reads ”Mintmark SI,” to the naked eye. When you hold a Sunshine Mint decoder card up to the small circle the word “”valid”” will appear. When the decoder card lens is tilted by 90 degrees, it reveals a sunburst. This is a much more advanced security feature than is present on most other bars in the industry and thus much more reliable and trusted.
Sunshine takes security a step further with this 1 g gold bar. Encased in plastic and attached to an assay card, Sunshine gold bars are easy to authenticate and even easier to protect.
