The Sunshine Mint was founded back in 1979 in Idaho and it is a mint which has become popular all over the world due to the quality and purity of their products. There is a new location which was opened in 2013 over in Las Vegas, Nevada, although the headquarters are still in Idaho. There was also a location opened in 2011 over in Shanghai, China.
Sunshine Minting Inc produces both silver bullion and gold in the bar and round forms. It offers more silver-related products than gold due to it being located in what is known as a silver-rich region of the United States. One of their most recognizable features is that there is an eagle on their silver bars, silver rounds, and gold bars. There is also a security feature on the products and you can find this security feature by using the Sunshine Mint decoder lens.
Sunshine Minting does not often times introduce new designs or products, but every so often a new product does come out. Most recently, a 1/2 ounce silver round was introduced into the lineup, as well as the SS Gairsoppa silver bars and rounds. The silver bars and rounds are made with .999 pure silver and are made from the real silver found on the shipwreck SS Gairsoppa. The packaging is also high quality over at Sunshine Mint, with bars often being in plastic packaging. Silver rounds come in tubes of 20 and are sealed for protection and quality.
