    Great that we are seeing innovative security features on rounds and coins.

    The Niue
    Mint Guard is changing the way the world buys bullion. By incorporating a latent image in to the die of the new Scottsdale CoinBar, Scottsdale Mint have added a security feature that anyone can easily verify without the use of additional materials or machines.

    The Sunshine round
    While not visible to the naked eye, when viewed through a unique decoding lens, the security features become visible.

    And the Perth Mint 2013 Kookaburra with the ultimate in security. A design so ugly no self respecting counterfeit artist could help but include enhancements.

    Add your finds below.

    Metalor gold bars:

    "The minted bars are sealed in a tamper-proof plastic case and issued with an assay certificate. Other security features include not only a serial number which can be checked against company records, but also an innovative Datamatrix code, engraved on the bar. This functions in a similar manner to the increasingly popular "QR code" and enables Metalor to encode unique information onto the bar". [4]

    OPM bars have similar tech to the Metalor bars from the sounds of the description.

    Has anyone checked the security text coding on their perth mint bars under UV lighting? I bought a 50 gram gold bar, and was just wondering how I confirm the contents... I don't any reason not to think is may be fake, but was wondering if anyone else has actually checked the certicard packaging under a UV light. I am new the this, so a little paranoid...

    Only natural to be a bit paranoid when starting out (and from then on) about the real thing.
    Best not to use real names if that is yours on username.

    That is why I am wearing a fake moustache on my avatar picture.

    Thanks for that, any idea about the text only visible under uv light? Has any one checked this themselves?

    Besides looking amazing, the imagery adds visible security to the rounds.

    This site no longer having sponsorship; this round is brought to you by the letter 'R'.

    Saurce: citric vinaigrette

    Brand new from Scottsdale Mint. The 2014 1 oz RESERVE silver round incorporates new technology with a beautiful modern contemporary design. These rounds feature latent imagery imbedded into both the obverse and reverse of the round, providing a unique look when the round is rotated along multiple axis. Depending on the angles the Lion Logo and 2014 completely disappear on the front and the same with the words Reserve & Scottsdale on the reverse. Besides looking amazing, the imagery adds visible security to the rounds. Struck in .999+ silver, each round weighs 1 troy ounce and shipped in tubes of 20.

    I wonder, all this extra surface (flat is least surface), alike that maple with the radial lines from an older post here, any impact to expect on the tarnishing side? The more ridges caves and canyons (eh) the more chance dust/dirt hangs on, and also the harder to clean.
    Could end up as a negative side of the anti counterfeit measures. It's probably too early to judge, but give it a couple years...

    Never had a problem with dirt and dust inside of tubes. Plus, a jewelry cleaner or ultrasonic box you see in mall jewelry stores would clean them right up.

    Me neither.
    How do I know?
    By not opening unopened tubes. :D
    Those that do, well, ehm, sniff, damn that fly on my nose!
    Plus, that's all extra work, cost, and risk.

    Just imagine that they branded a security.. ehm.. "feature" on your butt.
    I bet you'd scratch it.
    Same applies to extra surface / relief on a coin.
    More prone to visible dents, scratches, and other... ehm... "features". :D

    What??? You've got to be joking. The problem that silver Maple leaf's have coming straight from the RCM is not dust, oil, mud, dirt, and grime....but rather milk spots. Do you know what milk spots are???
