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 Silver Panda Showcases Rich Cultural Heritage

The obverse of the China 30 gram Silver Panda features an image of the Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests in the Temple of Heaven in Beijing. This hall has a rich and fascinating history important to the people of China. Construction began in 1406, by order of the Yongle Emperor to pray and make sacrifices in hopes of an abundant harvest, and was completed in 1420. . The temple is exquisitely beautiful and rich in traditional symbolism of ancient Chinese worship. The Temple of Heaven is divided into two separate sections. The northern portion is circular, representing heaven, while the southern part of the temple is rectangular, to symbolize Earth. The Hall of Prayer inside the temple has four inner, 12 middle and 12 outer pillars that represent the four seasons, 12 months and 12 traditional hours, respectively. There are four main dragon-shaped support beams that represent the four seasons and 12 internal pillars that symbolize the lunar months. The temple’s dark blue roof tiles symbolize the heavens and the Seven-Star Stone Group is symbolic of the seven peaks of Taishan Mountain, a sacred place 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 in the Precious Metals Market

Silver Pandas, launched in 1983, were struck in proof editions for the first three years. Those proof coins boasted a strictly limited mintage of 10,000 per year. In 1986, no Silver Pandas were produced, though they have been minted each year since. The reverse artwork on the Silver Panda changes annually, featuring a new panda scene, making them extremely desirable to collectors. However, in 2002, the China Gold Coin Corporations flirted with the idea of stopping the annual design change on the Silver Pands, and repeated the 2001 artwork. The coin world voiced its displeasure and the yearly changing artwork resumed in 2003.
