Since 2018, the Sunshine Mint has been placing the 'Mint Mark SI' on all of their bullion products.

Whether the bullion item is a round or a bar, on the reverse side of the bullion product you will find a circular area located in the middle of the item with the Mint Mark SI label. (as seen on the bar to the right)

Mint Mark SI is an Scrambled Indication security feature that is Micro-Engraved.

The Micro Engraving can only be visible with the Mint Mark SI decoding lens placed over the security feature.

Depending on whether the lens is held vertically or horizontally over the "Mint Mark SI security feature, will determine what you will see.

When the decoder lens is placed horizontally over the security feature, you will see the word "VALID" in the lens (shown right).

However, when the decoder lens is placed vertically over the security feature, you will see the Sunshine Mint's sunshine design.
