Silver Panda coins were first issued in 1983 as less-than-one-ounce proof coins. Each one contained only .900 silver content. This continued through 1985, with no 1986 Silver Panda coins issued at all. In 1987, Proof Silver Pandas were issued with .925 silver content. Again, in 1988 there were no Silver Pandas issued.
Starting in 1989, the Chinese Mint issued Silver Panda coins as bullion and proof coins for the first time using a standardized 1 Troy oz .999 fine silver content. As of the mid-1990s, the Proof Silver Chinese Panda Coins have featured separate designs of the Giant Panda species on the obverse of the bullion and proof versions of the coins.
