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.”

Great Coin

Let me just say that I have over two dozen different one ounce silver coins from around the world, from over a dozen different countries, and the pandas are easily my favorite of the bunch (with Britannia's being not far behind). They have never struck me as being particularly detailed, like some, but I'm always very pleased with their use of different finished. There are 2-3 different finishes used to bring out different design elements and they always seem to be spot on and well done. I also appreciate that this is the only series of the bunch with a diagonally-reeded edge; a unique detail that makes these stand out even more. This 2014 was no exception. It arrived within 2 business days, packaged extremely well, and was received in a capsule in mint condition. Everything was exceptional. Looking forward to continuing my Panda collection.

great coin but capsule badly scratched

By  Randy

from Champaign, Illinois

3.0

this is my first-time purchase with apmex. I bought two items: a 1985 one ounce libertad and this beautiful panda. The libertad received has scratches and dents. But this coin is immaculate except the case is badly scratched. I shouldn't be so picky but the thing is I only buy one item for each type of coin, and I chose apmex because of its good reputation. The result is I paid 10+ dollars over spot price per coin but received flawed product. disappointed.

Pros

  • Attractive Design
  • Mint Condition
  • Recognized Brand
  • Collectible (lower mintage)

Great Investment

Right now with Silver around $16, I wouldn't be buying Panda's for $30. However, I did purchase them when Silver was around $22 and I'm glad to see that they hold their value when the price of silver drops. Also, keep in mind that the price of silver has dropped but physical demand is at record highs. So much for the laws of supply and demand. The point is that this is why you buy Panda's. They are more collectible, and either maintain their value or increase in value every year. Not like American Eagles that are closely tied into the price of bullion. Beautiful design and would definitely buy more. I'm just waiting for the price to drop.

DAMAGED COINS

By  pinstripes

Not sure why anyone would complain about a coin being damaged. All you need to do is contact APMEX and they will make it right. It's ridiculous to think every order will be shipped perfectly. Are you perfect? As for the coin itself, I think this is a terrific buy. All you need to do is look at how much previous years have gone up in value. Much more so than the American Eagle has relatively speaking.

Pros

  • Attractive Design

The product arrived in a timely fashion but with a cracked capsule. With such a high premium on these coins I though they would send them in perfect condition with everything intact.

Cons

  • Common (higher mintage)
  • Poor Condition

Two for One, can't go bad

I really wanted to get some yuan incase they became gold backed, bascially shooting the Yuan high. I think this is a better alternative. I get the market cost of silver and 10 yuan with every coin. That duality makes it very attractive.

Pros

  • Attractive Design
  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Currency
