The deceptively simple Sunshine Mint Decoder Lens, the MintMark™ SI, was designed to easily determine the authenticity of coins, rounds, and bars from Sunshine Minting, provider of the blanks from which the Unites States Mint strikes the American Silver Eagle.
Beginning with the Mint’s 1 troy ounce gold bar, a hidden security feature on the reverse of each authentic precious metal product issued by SMI indicates its validity. The image, however, can only be viewed through the Sunshine Mint Decoder Lens MintMark SI™, adding a heretofore unrealized layer of security to help preserve the investor’s peace of mind.

This does what it suppose to do. It took me awhile to figure out how to use it.

Nice product if you are stacking lots of sunshine metal, but pretty pricy for just a simple polarizing sheet.

Authentic SMI-branded (Sunshine Minting, Inc.) decoder lens using the MintMark SI technology - not an imitation.
Order processing and shipping were rapid. Packaging was terrific - very secure. Lens arrived in perfect condition. Price was best I could find. I will buy from Goldmart.com again and again.

Take your coin and place the Mint Mark SI over the Coin. Slowly rotate the Coin and you will see a ripple hologram through the SI card as you turn,, keep turning the coin and you will see the VAILED SI mark on the coin..

Works perfectly. Nice and sturdy, definitely not a flimsy piece of plastic. Wonderful authenticating tool to have. Adds additional peace of mind. Competitively priced too.

Tested my new silver bars with the mint decoder, tested good. I compared your lens price to other distributors and your price was the best.

works great. very cool feature on the sunshine bars. Decoder works and I haven't even taken it out of the plastic back in came in.

It works. When the bullion is placed behind the card, the word "valid" shows up. It looks nifty, in addition to having added authenticity confirmation. The card doesn't seem very scratch resistant, so keep it safe.
