The 1983 debut of the Silver Panda Series included only 1 oz Proof Silver Panda coins. For the first several years, the Chinese Mint restricted the mintage of the proof coins to 10,000 per year. These early coins also featured .900 silver content. The 1989 1 oz Silver Chinese Panda Coin features .999 fine silver content and was the first coin in the series to include this level of purity.
Silver Chinese Panda coins are known for the use of new obverse designs each year. The image of the Giant Panda used on the obverse of the Silver Panda coins is changed with each passing year by the Chinese Mint, with only the 2001 and 2002 coins sharing the same design.
On the obverse of the 1989 1 oz Silver Chinese Panda Coin, you’ll find the image of one panda as it sits on its backside while clutching a branch of bamboo. This side of the coin includes engravings of the weight, metal content, purity, and face value.
The reverse of all Silver Chinese Panda Coins features the Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests. This structure is part of the Temple of Heaven complex which was constructed in Beijing between 1406 and 1420.
