Each 2009 1 oz Silver Chinese Panda coin listed here today is in BU condition. Coins in BU condition exhibit no signs of wear and tear, but are not quite perfect. These coins can feature minor flaws from the coining process ranging from breaks in the luster and spotted surfaces to contact marks.
Although 1979 marked the launch of new, modern bullion coins by the Chinese Mint, it would be another few years before the release of the official bullion coins of the nation: the Chinese Panda Series. The Gold Panda coins debuted in 1982 with 1 oz, ½ oz, ¼ oz, and 1/10 oz coins. A 1/20 oz coin was added in 1983.
In 1983, the Chinese Mint introduced the Silver Panda, but only as a proof coin. Bullion Silver Pandas weren’t regularly available until 1989. Today, the Chinese Mint’s collection of Gold Panda and Silver Panda coins represent one of the most popular programs available to investors and collectors.
On the obverse of this 2009 1 oz Silver Chinese Panda coin is the image of a pair of pandas. The two bears are featured sitting on the ground next to each other, with one bear holding a large leaf. The background has a large cluster of bamboo shoots forming a wall, while engravings include the face value, weight, metal content, and purity of the coin.
The reverse of the Silver Chinese Panda Coin features the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests. Located inside the Temple of Heaven complex, this religious facility for Taoists was constructed between 1406 and 1420.
All Silver Chinese Panda coins are struck by the Chinese Mint. The official mint of the People’s Republic of China, coinage and commemorative bullion are backed by the People’s Bank of China.
