For thousands of years, people have used Precious Metals as currency. In more recent years, investors have utilized coins, bars and rounds as investments. Buying Silver and Gold bullion is a great way to add to an investment portfolio because their value is based on the metal content, not the collectibility or numismatic value. The 1 oz Sunshine Round is a great example of a Silver bullion round. The reason this is called a round and not a coin is due to the lack of a government-backed face value. Sunshine Silver rounds have a simple yet striking design that makes them appealing to investors and collectors alike. The obverse of the Silver round shows an eagle, the Sunshine Mint’s icon, while the reverse lists the .999 fine Silver purity. Because they have an unlimited mintage and no face value, these are referred to as bullion rounds. Primarily desired for their metal content, investors purchase these products as a hedge or general investment. Other buyers purchase these coins as a possible monetary source in the event of economic collapse.
One unique feature of 1 oz Sunshine Silver Rounds is the MintMark SI™ security feature, which provides buyers the confidence that they’re purchasing a legitimate product from the mint. Sunshine Minting also offers a special item called the Sunshine Minting Decoder Lens (sold separately). This lens offers buyers of Sunshine bullion the ability to see the word “Valid” when held up to the product’s security feature. Additionally, when the lens is turned 90 degrees, a sunburst appears in the same location.
