OPM, also known as Ohio Precious Metals, is one of the most well-known and trusted names in the bullion industry from North America. They are most notable for their use of recycled materials in the production of all of their silver bars and rounds. This use of recycled material means that OPM is one of the most sustainable precious metals companies in the world, an especially important facet of their company in this day in age.
Our OPM silver rounds come in a variety of sizes ranging from small to large as to suit any type of investor. Every OPM silver round displays the company's mintmark, as well as the .999 purity and the weight. Many of these silver rounds have a coloration that is more of a matte silver than it is the lustrous, shiny silver you may be used to.
Ohio Precious Metals is located in Jackson, Ohio which is in the Southeastern part of the state, closer to West Virginia. They opened their doors in 1974 and from day one their business has been based on the refining and minting of precious metals, mainly for investment purposes. While they are arguably most popular for their minting of silver bars and rounds, OPM also has a strong foothold in the gold bullion industry, as well.
People who care about their carbon footprint and the environment in general tend to be attracted to OPM because their bullion products are sourced primarily from recycled materials. They take their sustainability efforts one step further in that they do not work with recycled materials that are contaminated by radioactive or otherwise chemically dangerous materials. You can look around, but there is little chance of finding a mint that is more conscious and respectful of the environment than OPM.
Though OPM may produce bullion in a number of different weights and designs, their most popular silver round is without a doubt the one ounce variety. These rounds are in line with the shape and thickness of other silver rounds in the industry and actually feature a design that is a good bit more attractive than many other rounds available today. Newer OPM 1 ounce silver rounds feature a two-tone coloration that is shiny on the accents while sporting more of a matte primary color.
If you are an environmentally conscious person, or would simply like to buy a silver round that has a unique design, OPM silver rounds are just what you are looking for.
