Each of the 1 Kilo Sunshine Silver Bars available to you in this product listing comes inside of protective packaging that is sealed to ensure the quality of the product. This bar is one of seven possible weights in the SMI Silver Bullion lineup of silver bars for sale from Sunshine Minting. Other popular weights include 1 oz, 5 oz, 10 oz, and 100 oz silver bars.

The Mint Mark SI technology includes a Scrambled Indicia security feature on the reverse side of the bar. All SMI brand bullion from Sunshine Minting includes this mark which helps deter counterfeiting of Sunshine Minting products. The micro-engraving of the Mint Mark SI is visible only by placing a patented decoding lens over the security pad.

On the obverse of the 1 Kilo Sunshine Silver Bar is the image of the refinery’s full logo. In a large circle centered in the upper portion of the design field on this side is a bald eagle flying through the air with a burst of sunshine behind its figure. The words Sunshine Minting surround the bird. Below that, you’ll find the purity, metal content, and weight of the bar.

The reverse field of the 1 Kilo Silver Bar from Sunshine Mintings SMI Bullion range includes the exclusive Mint Mark SI technology mark. It is found in the center of the design field and appears to have a rough, matte finish with no discernible features. Micro-engraved within this circle, however, is the Mint Mark SI technology which allows you to identify the individual bar you’ve purchased and validate its authenticity.

Sunshine Minting was founded in Coeur dAlene, Idaho in 1979. The in-house capabilities of this vast refinery include a tool-and-die shop, assay laboratory, and precious metal alloying, to name a few things.
