The face of the bars has the mintmark, as well as a serial number, weight and purity. Sunshine Mint gold bars have a special trademarked Mintmark SI which when viewed through a sunshine decoder lens shows the validity of the bar. The back side of the bar has a basic design that gives the bar enough detail to look nice, but isn’t so much that it distracts from the quality of the bar itself. The bars are very well packaged, and look quite beautiful.
