The Royal Canadian Mint is a globally recognized refiner that produces some of the most talked about silver bars in the world. Because the Mint is responsible for also striking coins for both Canada and other countries, investors have fewer RCM Silver Bar options than with other bullion brands. However, the silver bar offerings from Canada’s national mint are among the purest silver bars out there, making them perfect for diversifying your investment portfolio.
Although RCM Silver Bars come in various sizes, each perfectly created bullion bar will feature more or less the same design. On the obverse face is “ROYAL CANADIAN MINT” and “MONNAIE ROYALE CANADIENNE”, both of which encircle the Mint logo. Below this design is the weight, purity and the engraving “FINE SILVER ARGENT PUR.” The 100 oz RCM Silver Bar will have a plain reverse, whereas the 10 oz Bar displays a repeating pattern of the maple leaf logo.
It’s fair to say that the 100 oz RCM Silver Bar certainly used to be the most popular of all the silver bars minted by the Royal Canadian Mint, but the newer 10 oz version with unique security features has quickly become a firm favorite among investors too.
Created by the Royal Canadian Mint, the 100 oz RCM Silver Bar is one of the best options available for those looking to purchase pure bullion. Not only does it look sophisticated close-up but it also feels fantastic in your hand. Investors are particularly drawn to the 100 oz RCM Silver Bar’s .9999 purity and the fact that it has been produced by one of the most trusted names in the industry.
The 100 oz RCM Silver Bar is quite large and eligible for use in a Precious Metals IRA. It features the Royal Canadian Mint logo on the obverse, as well as the weight, purity, metal content, year of issue and a serial number. Each 100 oz RCM Silver Bar boasts a superior level of purity and is fully backed by the Royal Canadian Mint, one of the few world mint’s that is 100% government-owned.
Struck by the Royal Canadian Mint in Canada, the 10 oz RCM Silver Bar is composed of .9999 fine silver, just like the 100 oz version. The obverse displays the recognizable Mint emblem, as well as the weight, purity and a serial number. On the reverse is a repeating pattern of the Mint’s maple leaf logo. The thing that makes the 10 oz RCM Silver Bar unique is that it provides maximum protection against counterfeiting, all thanks to its special security features.
Every 10 oz RCM Silver Bar comes with reeded edges, similar to the edges found on a coin. The bars are also made with the Royal Canadian Mint’s unique Bullion Finish. Both of these advanced security features make the 10 oz RCM Silver bar impossible to counterfeit, helping to fully protect your investment. In addition to these added measures of security, each bar is backed by the Canadian government and comes in sealed RCM packaging.
Founded in 1908, the Royal Canadian Mint has been striking coins and bars for well over 100 years. Before the Mint became a wholly Canadian institution, Canada’s coins were produced at the Royal Mint in London, England. When the Royal Mint opened a branch in Ottawa, Canada was able to strike its first official Canadian coins. Another branch was established in Winnipeg many years later to enable the Ottawa branch to create only collectible silver and gold coins. It wasn’t until 1931 when the Royal Canadian Mint gained its independence and was passed into Canadian hands.
Still in operation today, the Royal Canadian Mint has become one of the most technically advanced mints on the planet. It has produced .9999 fine gold bars since 1969 and became the world’s first refinery to manufacture .9999 fine gold bullion coins and .99999 fine gold purity. Designed to meet any possible demand for many years to come, the Royal Canadian Mint is a name investor’s trust to produce superior gold and silver products, such as the 10 oz and 100 oz RCM Silver Bars.
People from across the globe look to purchase RCM Silver Bars because they know that the Royal Canadian Mint is a sophisticated minting operation that offers the purest bullion bars on the market today. Investors also appreciate that the Mint is able to produce IRA-eligible RCM Silver Bars with exclusive security traits.
