The bison on the obverse of this MintID Buffalo 5 oz Silver Bar pays homage to a staple of classic American iconography. This majestic animal represents an earlier time in American history, one in which the wild creatures roamed freely in the country’s plains.
Many people don’t know that there are actually two separate types of American bison. The plains bison is the most famous subspecies, but the lesser-known wood bison is mostly native to Canada and the upper parts of the United States.
The textured buffalo on this five ounce silver bar is exceptionally detailed, and it stands proudly below the MintID logo, as well as the weight and purity of the piece.
Flip the MintID Buffalo 5 oz Silver Bar over for a look at the most unique element of the piece. The NFC chip takes center stage. Using a simple phone application, anyone with a smartphone can authentify the legitimacy and access the serial information associated with the silver bar.
The background of the bar includes a repeating design on the MintID logo, which depicts a cell phone giving off a signal.
The unique digital profile of every MintID bar is one reason why the manufacturer continues to gain steam among collectors.
In the technological era, there’s little reason why more manufacturers haven’t adopted a similar approach to authentication.
The combination of aesthetic design appeal and highly developed security makes this a fine addition to any collector’s case.
For fans of the classic American buffalo, this MintID Buffalo 5 oz Silver Bar is an excellent conversation piece. And it’s hard to underestimate how revolutionary this form of mobile NFC verification can really be for the tech-savvy bullion collector.
