For a long time, scientists weren’t sure if giant pandas were bears or perhaps more closely related to raccoons. Now we know that giant pandas are indeed members of the bear family, similar to other bears in their general looks and the way they walk and climb. Looked upon as the ambassador for all endangered species, the giant panda is a well-recognized symbol of international wildlife conservation. Giant pandas have black fur on their ears, around their eyes (eye patches), muzzle, legs and shoulders. Good tree climbers, pandas can also swim to escape predators. Pandas use an enlarged wrist bone that looks like a thumb to grasp objects like bamboo.
This beautiful oval pure silver coin is the second coin of the popular "Fascinating Wildlife" series. The second coin of the series celebrates the Giant Panda with a close-up view on the reverse of the Panda's face, showing the distinctive black eyes and coarse hair. Along the right edge is the scientific name, "Ailuropoda melanoleuca." The oval shape allows the coin to fully embody the face of the endangered creature, making it a perfect fit for any collection. The obverse features the Fiji coat of arms, along with the year 2013 and the legal tender value of Niue $10. Each coin comes in a beautiful box and with a certificate of authenticity.
