The design of the 10 ounce OPM silver bar is in line with most other ten ounce bars in the industry. The front side features the 10 ounce weight, the .999 purity, as well as the OPM name and mint mark. The reverse side of this bullion features a diagonally fixated pattern of raised, repeating OPM mint marks. Each bar is also carefully sealed within a plastic sheet at OPM’s facility as to protect its brand-new condition and design from the elements.
The history of OPM, otherwise known as Ohio Precious Metals, can be traced back to 1974 in Jackson, Ohio. OPM popped up at more or less the same time that many other popular mints first made their way into the precious metals industry. Because OPM was just one of many new mints back in the 1970s, they needed something to differentiate themselves from the rest of their growing competition.
OPM’s calling card was that their silver bullion is primarily sourced from recycled materials. Pollution being the social stigma that it is, it is easy to see why OPM gained popularity as quickly as they did. Nowadays, this mint is one of the most prominent in all of North America and has reached a peak level of worldwide prestige.
