          Comments about Sunshine Minting Decoder Lens (#1):

          A clever and handy way to validate the authenticity of all Sunshine Mint bullion incorporating the MintMark SI encoding. Honestly I don't think the price is out of line at all for what this product delivers. It is not necessary to remove the bars from their sealed bags in order to see the word VALID when the lens is laid upon the bar one way and the sunburst pattern when rotated 90 degrees. This gives absolute peace of mind to the owner and validates the product should you ever decide to sell it. A brilliant technique indeed!

          Service and delivery comments:

          APMEX service, packaging, products, and lightning quick shipping sets the high water mark for the industry! I love dealing with with this wonderful company and plan on continuing for many years to come.

          Simply a Must Have for Sunshine Bullion

          By Bullion Hedger

          from Somewhere, USA

          Pros

              Comments about Sunshine Minting Decoder Lens (#1):

              This is an absolute must for validating the authenticity of Sunshine Mint Bullion which incorporate the MintMark SI feature. Simply lay the decoder lens over the back of the bar to see the word 'VALID' appear. Rotating the lens 90 degrees makes the hallmark Sunburst pattern visible. It is not necessary to remove the bar from the sealed plastic for this process to work so it's a clever and brilliant means to ensure that you are holding an authentic piece of .999 Silver from the Sunshine Mint. This will be of particular necessity if you ever need to sell your bar(s). I'm not going to take away a star based on this exclusive lens being priced at $20 which is insignificant given the peace of mind it brings and/or the authentication it provides to a potential buyer.

              Service and delivery comments:

              I included this lens with an order for some bullion and, as always, the packaging was rugged as well as discrete. Ordered late Tuesday afternoon and was signing the USPS delivery slip by noon on Thursday. Absolutely the best service in the industry .. bar none!

              Comments about Sunshine Minting Decoder Lens (#1):

              Would be 5 star but I feel the price should be a closer to the $10.00 mark. It's nice to see the authenticity of your silver on the back if ever needed. ***RECOMENDED***

                      Since the sunshine bars don't have the security of essay cards I figured I would pick one of these up. They work great, though would be nice if they would come down on the price a bit.

                            This is a nice idea and it works but it is sure expensive at $20 for a single card of plastic... I understand it takes money to make the technology but $20 seems a heafty price for it. But given all of this I still purchased it.

                            Neat Security From Sunshine

                            Comments about Sunshine Minting Decoder Lens (#1):

                            I bought this to use with my one ounce Sunshine silver bars and the mint mark security feature. It is really neat to see the word "valid" appear when you hold it one way. Then just rotate it 90 degrees and you will see a sun symbol. You must hold it directly on the surface of the mark for it to work. This was part of a larger order but there was a small delay in shipping. APMEX made up for it by giving me free shipping on my next order.

                            This decoder lens is a very cool addition to you Sunshine products with the mintmark feature. Depending on how you hold it to the mintmark it will read "valid",or it will show the sun symbol. TIP: You must hold the lens directly against the mintmark to see the security feature and the blue writting of the lens must be facing you.

                            Service and delivery comments:

                            I ordered this the same time I ordered the sunshine silver bars. There was a slight delay and the lens arrived two days after the bars. However, APMEX made up for it by giving me free shipping for my next order.
