Silver Pandas Over Time

The Chinese Panda coin series is one of very few in the world that changes designs every year, making it a popular collection and investment coin.

Several factors contribute to the Silver Panda’s collectibility and premium, including:

  • Yearly changing designs, which presents immediate collectible appeal.
  • Limited mintage for each issue.
  • Multiple mints are sometimes responsible for one-coin issue, resulting in coin variations.

When choosing coins for beauty, rarity and profit, it doesn’t get much better than the Silver Panda.

THE MANY SILVER PANDA DESIGNS
All Silver Panda coins are guaranteed by the People’s Bank of China and contain .999 fine Silver. With exception of 2001 and 2002, all coins are unique in design. In 2016, Gold and Silver Pandas started to be produced in metric system sizes to better suit the international appeal of the coins. These gram sizes replaced the troy ounce sizes of previous dates. While not an exact conversion, the new gram sizes provide the closest metric equivalent to the similarly sized ounce counterparts:

  • 1 oz replaced by 30 grams
  • 1/2 oz replaced by 15 grams
  • 1/4 oz replaced by 8 grams
  • 1/10 oz replaced by 3 grams
  • 1/20 oz replaced by 1 gram
