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.
