Since they were first minted in 1982, the Chinese Panda Coins have been highly popular World-wide. As a tribute to China’s endangered Giant Panda Bears, each year the Chinese Mint changes the design of the coins. This has made the Chinese Panda Silver Coins one of the more followed coin programs by collectors and investors alike.
Each Chinese Panda Silver coin contains 1 troy ounce of (pure .999 Silver.) Every coin is individually sealed at the Chinese Mint in a clear plastic holder to protect the 99.99% pure Silver.
The obverse side of the one ounce coin features an image of pandas . Although the specific design of the panda changes with each Silver Panda coin issued every year, the panda itself continues to be a recurring image. The face value of the coin, 10 Yuan, along with “1 oz. Ag .999,” rim the outer edge of the round.
The reverse displays the date of mintage, along with a group of Chinese characters that translate into “The People’s Republic of China.” The Temple of China, a well-known architectural site in Beijing, is also engraved on the back.
