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.”

NOT BU QUALITY

By  Jonathan

from Minnesota

2.0

I've purchased other silver pandas and never had an issue but for some reason I've had to return 2 of these which APMEX has exchanged and paid for postage. Just disappointed that this year has been such an issue for me. I will continue to purchase the pandas as I love the annual design change and aside from this year, never had an issue.

Pros

  • Attractive Design
  • Easy to Sell
  • Recognized Brand

Cons

  • Poor Condition

LOVE Silver Pandas

By  Mike

Out of the dozens of different 1 oz silver coins I have from all across the globe, the pandas are up there at the top of my list and are one of the very few series I've chosen to collect a full set of. They are consistently very well done coins, both in quality and design. There's a high level of proof-like detail and they are great at utilizing different textures and finishes. The 2010 panda is no exception. Was received in perfect condition in a mint capsule.

Pros

  • Attractive Design
  • Mint Condition
  • Recognized Brand

Cons

  • Common (higher mintage)

Milk spot on the obverse!

By  Alex

from Canada

2.0

The obverse has a milk spot, pretty big and noticeable, and a couple of small marks, plus a couple of scratches on the edge. For the high price APMEX charges for this coin, I expected much better quality. The coin should have been perfect. If I were based in the US, I would send it back right away. Now I am stuck with it. Really disappointed.

Milk spots!

By  J. Sho

from Los Angeles, CA

2.0

I've been stacking silver (mostly) and gold for less than one year now. I've found that I am really fond of chinese pandas along with most Perth Mint bullion. I ordered this 2010 silver panda to add to my panda army (mint sheets of the later years and a few of each of the older years). I find it disappointing that I received a 2010 silver panda with milk spots on the reverse. Though milk spots are common, I find it really takes away from this coins beauty.

Pros

  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Attractive Design

Cons

  • Poor Condition

I always knew the Chinese Silver Pandas were nice high-end coins. However, I also like the Britannia’s and Libertads. After receiving the 2009 and the 2010 Pandas, I compared them to all the other premium coins I have. I can clearly say no other coin even comes close in terms of fine detail and absolute beauty.
