Security Line Silver Bars from Geiger Edelmetalle are among the most advanced silver products on the market today. Geiger uses a total of four new, unique security features to protect the identity and authenticity of the bars from counterfeiting. Among the simpler security features are the ribbed edge, the pearl finish on the obverse, the textured finish of the reverse, and the security label (including serial number) on the bottom edge of the bar.
The most advanced feature on the new Security Line bars is the UV varnish used on the reverse side of the bar. A blue UV varnish is applied on this side of the bar that displays both the year of minting and the LEV (German initials for the mint) rhombus when exposed to a UV light.
On the obverse side of the bar you’ll find a circular logo for Geiger Edelmetalle that features the image of Castle Schloss Guldengossa, the headquarters of the mint. The mint name is featured at the top of the bar, followed by the metal content, purity, and weight of the bar. While the image of Scholl Guldengossa bears a mirrored finish, the background on the obverse has the aforementioned pearl finish.
The reverse side of the 1 Gram Security Line Silver Bar features a repeating image of the LEV rhombus, a textured finish, and a mirrored appearance. Again, this is the side with the UV varnish that provides the most advanced security against counterfeiting.
Geiger Edelmetalle was founded in 1218 in Leipzig when merchants established the oldest silver trade in Germany. The company is located in the Saxony region of Germany, where silver mining has taken place for more than 1,000 years.
