The 5000 Gram Silver Bar is the Geiger Edelmetelle Mint’s newest addition to its Security Lines Bar Series. As with other silver bullion from Greiger Edelmetalle, this bar possesses a fineness of .999. However, it is the first piece ever to be struck at an impressive weight of 5000 grams, making it the perfect option for those who wish to make significantly larger silver investments. Every silver bar included in this collection is guaranteed to arrive in brand new condition, encased in its original plastic wrapping.
This silver bar was designed as a unique blend between artistry and security. In fact, many of its anti-counterfeit features have been incorporated into the design of the bar itself. For instance, the pearl-like finish on the bar’s surface not only deters would-be counterfeiters to, but it also provides a stylish background for the engravings. These engravings include the Geiger Edelmetalle Logo; an image of the mint’s headquarters in Schloss Güldengossa castle; and the bar’s purity and weight.
Another security feature that has been incorporated into the design are the ridges along the bar’s edge. Much like the pearl finish on the front of the bar, the ridges pose a challenge to forgers who wish to copy the bar’s design. Such attempts will often result in inconsistent ridges or the omission of the ridges entirely. In addition to the ridges, the bottom edge of the bar has been labeled with a number. This number enables customers to verify the authenticity of their bar and check whether the mint possesses any records of its production.
But, perhaps the most innovative feature of this bar is the UV reflecting varnish that has been painted on its backside. This particular paint can only be seen under UV-lighting and will reveal Both the Geiger Edelmettalle logo and the bar’s mintage year if the bar is authentic. With such a complicated process, replicating this feature would be nearly impossible. Serving as a backdrop to the UV paint is the Geiger Edelmetalle logo which has been engraved across the whole surface of the bar.
