very difficult to use

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

i only bought this for the sunshine mint coins to validate the coins, this thing is so hard to see anything i am wondering if the coins actually have the word VALID on them? there must be a trick to using this thing which i have not found out yet. if i ever do i am sure i will appreciate it, i have placed the decoder on the coin and rotated it - seen nothing. i have also used a magnifying glass with a light to look through the decoder and nothing. if someone could tell me what i am doing wrong it would be appreciated thanks bob

Peace of mind!

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

Prior to this purchase, I had purchased a 5 oz Sunshine Mint silver bar. I noticed the mint mark, and thought it would be cool to "test" my bar's authenticity, as well as make sure other purchases of Sunshine amount products are authentic. It's very cool in how it works. When placed on top of the mint mark on a Sunshine product, it displays the word "VALID". Turn it 90° and you get a sunburst design. Overall, it was an excellent product, and aria recommend anyone who owns more than a few ounces of bullion from the Sunshine Mint to get one soon.

A small price to pay for peace of mind!

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

I bought this because I had purchased the 5 oz Sunshine Mint silver bar. And I wanted to have peace of mind knowing my bar was secure. It works just fine, as expected, and has no damage to it whatsoever. It's a little on the expensive side, but I'm still quite content with it. I recommend the decoder lens to anyone that owns a Sunshine Mint product, and wants to confirm that their silver/gold/etc. isn't counterfeited.

  • Correct Fit
  • Attractive Design

Unbeatable peace of mind

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

This is a "Must Have" item for bullion collectors in my opinion. Silver is down at the moment but there are still plenty of fake bars and rounds out there. Sunshine has created the best security feature out there to date. The cost is well worth it for the peace of mind. I even picked one up for a coin dealer friend of mine and he uses it quite regularly.

The Coolest, Most Useful

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

- The BEST security feature outside of the Heraeus hologram out there. - When silver is going for >$50 in 1H15, there are going to be counterfeit silver bars/coins everywhere. Outside of 90% silver, this is the best option for avoiding the issue when need to sell some. - Love Sunshine's ingenuity! *Is about OUNCES, not "beauty".

A Must Have for Sunshine Mint Bars

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

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!


  • Pros
  • Product Validation
  • Peace Of Mind
  • High Quality
  • Low Cost
  • Bottom Line
  • Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Simply a Must Have for Sunshine Bullion

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

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.

  • Security Authentication
