The Silver Pandas were first minted in 1983. The first 3 years of mintage were in proof quality condition, and had a limited mintage of 10,000 pieces for each year. No Silver Pandas were struck in 1986, but they have been minted every year since then. Each year, the design of the panda changes making them highly collectible. The only year they didn’t change design was 2002, which used the same design as 2001.

The People’s Republic of China issues and guarantees the quality of each Silver Panda coin. Silver Panda coins are minted from several mints each year. Those mints include but are not limited to Shenzhen, Shanghai and Shenyang. Unlike the U.S. Mint, these Chinese Mints do not incorporate mintmarks to distinguish the difference between each mint. Instead, these mints are known for having minor differences in the design of the coin such as font size, bamboo length and designs of the temple in certain year’s mintages. With the annual change in design, and unique mint variations, the price of Silver Pandas has appreciated over time making them highly sought after by collectors and investors.

The Chinese Silver Panda is a stunning tribute to the beautiful architecture and precious wildlife the country is known for. The first Silver Pandas were minted from 1983 to 1985 and made of .900 fine Silver. After a few years of a varied production schedule with different purities, the coins were finally struck in .999 fine Silver in 1989. These Silver bullion coins are struck at various mints across China, including the Beijing Mint, the Shenzhen Mint, the Shanghai Mint and the Shenyang Mint.

In 2016, to better appeal to international investors and collectors, the sizes of the coins were changed from troy ounces to grams. Although not exact conversions, the new sizes are the closest metric equivalent to ounces. These sizes now include: 30 grams, 150 grams and 1 kilo. Previous years also included 1/2 oz and 12 oz coins.

The Chinese Silver Panda is among the few bullion coins to change its design annually, with one exception. In 2001, a freeze of the design was announced, so coins produced in 2001 and 2002 had identical designs. However, after customer protest, China reverted back to its original policy and in 2003 the coin had a new design. The reverse of the coin always features at least one panda usually in its natural habitat. Since its issuance, the obverse of the coin has featured the iconic Temple of Heaven in Beijing.

After construction began in 1406 under the order of the Yongle Emperor, the Temple of Heaven was completed in 1420. The temple was built so the emperor could pray and make sacrifices to Heaven for a rich and fruitful harvest. Just as the temple itself is beautiful, so too is its symbolism steeped in the rich tradition of ancient Chinese Heaven worship. The Temple of Heaven is divided into two sections by two walls that enclose the temple. The northern half is circular in shape to represent Heaven, while the southern end of the temple is rectangular, symbolizing Earth. The Hall of Prayer inside the temple has four inner, twelve middle and twelve outer pillars that represent the four seasons, twelve months and twelve traditional hours respectively. There are four main dragon-shaped support beams that represent the four seasons and twelve internal pillars that symbolize the lunar months. The dark blue roof tiles of the temple represent the heavens and the Seven-Star Stone Group is symbolic of the seven peaks of Taishan Mountain, a place of worship for the classical Chinese practice of Heaven worship. In 1998, the Temple of Heaven was declared to be a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and was praised as “a masterpiece of architecture… [that] had a profound influence on architecture and planning in the Far East for many centuries.”

Silver Pandas are Fantastic

By  Mike

from Utah

5.0

Silver Pandas are one of the very few 1oz silver series I collect each year, and of the ones I collect, pandas are at the top. They are very high quality and have some of the best finishes of any comparable coin produced by other mints. The relatively new 30g format (just less than an ounce) is unique, but adds character. Highly recommended series.

  • Common (higher mintage)

15 Pack 2017 Panda Really Shines

By  Itsalrightwitme

from Sunshine State

5.0

When the China Panda's were changed from a Troy ounce to 30 grams a lot of folks complained. It seemed to me like a buying opportunity because I thought they would be different. So whenever I had a few extra bucks this is where it went. The Panda design changes every year, leave the mint in proprietary holder, and now if you can swing 15 at a time you receive them in a plastic holder that frames these beauties. Then APMEX wraps them up and ships them in the thickest cardboard box that I have ever seen. All this aside the Panda seems to bring a much higher premium than other silver coins in similar sizes. Troy Ounce (31.3 gm) versus Pandas (30 gm) each.

2017 silverbear

By  Khan

The 30 gram China silver panda has a nice design. I like coins with a changing yearly image. This adds to their collectability, for sure. Purchasing bullion on the year of its release is the way to go. It certainly makes it more affordable, and increases the odds of aquiring a more sought after item. The 2017 Panda seems to have a frosted or milky appearance. Also very giftworthy.

Pros

  • Attractive Design
  • Collectible (lower mintage)
