|Sunshine Minting silver rounds are one of the most popular silver rounds on the market due to their quality and beauty. Further, Sunshine has taken measures to prevent counterfeit silver rounds with new technology that makes use of a specialized decoding lens. The lens reveals a Sunshine Mint logo and the word “valid” when placed over the center of the round. This mint (Mint Web Site: Sunshine Minting, Inc.) is known to provide some of the highest quality silver bullion and supplies blanks to sovereign mints around the world for the production of official government issued silver coins.
The obverse of the new Version 2 (depicted here) silver round is essentially Sunshine Minting’s logo, with a beautifully sculpted eagle in flight, partially obscuring the sun. The sun’s rays radiate outwards toward the perimeter, with “Sunshine Minting” inscribed across the top and bottom. The reverse features the security seal in the center, which doubles again as the sun, while sun rays radiate outwards. Around the perimeter of the round, Sunshine has included the requisite “1 Troy Ounce” and “.999 Fine Silver” inscriptions. Sunshine Minting silver rounds feature reeded edges.Image Credit: JM Bullion

Sunshine Mint Silver Round Video Overview
This video demonstrates the mirror-like finish that accompanies these rounds, as we capture light from multiple angles. We have also attempted to demonstrate the holographic anti-counterfeit seal that Sunshine Minting places in the center of the obverse. The detail on the Eagle did not come out as well as we had hoped in this video (the silver round we recorded was not brand new at the time), but pictures at the dealer site linked above should help you see the beauty and quality.

A friend of mine introduced me to the concept of precious metals as a legitimate form of security preparation and I was convinced to buy Sunshine 1oz rounds because of the security feature. Purchased 4 rounds when silver was at a price that matched my budget and had them within three days because of a weekend. I was impressed with the speed and the quality of the rounds. The security feature works as advertised. Sunshine 1oz rounds are all I will be purchasing in the future.
As the editor of MiningMagazines.com, which has been fighting the battle through SilverMiningClaims.com, over counterfeit paper silver certificates — way to go Sunshine!
Isn't it fascinating that these 1 oz silver rounds, replacing a silver dollar, are selling at a spot price premium of well over that of a paper silver dollar?
As a supply-side miner I am just hoping that some of the silver round speculators will put enough usable-silver aside to keep the robust solar energy running.
Sunshine Minting provides not only beautiful rounds with a mirror-like lustre, they add an anti-counterfeit measure to boot! Really, these are really well-done, and the security seal technology on the new, Version 2 rounds provides peace of mind for those concerned about the authenticity of the rounds they are buying. Not only to you get .999 pure silver, you get proof that these are the real deal. We start Sunshine Mint off with 5 stars. Help your fellow silver buyers and give us your own quick impressions.
