One of the most popular silver bullion coins today is the Silver Chinese Panda. Offered by the Chinese Mint since its debut in 1983, the Silver Panda coin was the first major silver bullion coin in the world to use rotating images on the obverse face each year. Though it always remains focused on the Giant Panda species, the specific design elements change from one year to the next. The 1 oz Silver Chinese Panda Coin is currently available to you for purchase online at Silver.com from varied years of issue.

The Chinese Mint did not originally offer the Silver Panda coin as a bullion option with standardized weights and purity. The coins available from 1983 to 1985 had less than one Troy ounce of metal with a purity level of .900. The coins were not issued in 1986, and when they returned in 1987 the coins had a standard of One Troy ounce with .999 fine silver content.
One happy inconsistency of the Silver Chinese Panda coinage is the use of a new design element on the obverse side each year. The Giant Panda is depicted in a different pose with each new issue of the coin, with 2002 the only year in which a design was repeated (2001 design). Investors prefer the use of new designs in this series though, and the Chinese Mint has maintained that practice since 2003.
The obverse face of 1 oz Silver Chinese Panda Coins includes the image of a Giant Panda. Evolving with each passing year, you can expect to find the coin’s face value on this side along with elements such as bamboo, the primary staple in the diet of a Giant Panda. On the reverse face of Silver Chinese Panda Coins is the image of the Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests. This building is the largest in the Temple of Heaven Complex constructed in Beijing between 1416 and 1420.
