Since it was first released in 1983 by the People’s Republic of China, the Silver Chinese Panda has been a popular favorite among all members of the numismatic community. Now, the mint has released the 31st installment of the series, the 2014 Silver Chinese Panda Coin. Because of its status as the official silver bullion coin of China, every panda coin is carefully struck in 1 troy oz of .999 fine silver. All coins included in this collection have been certified with a perfect grade of MS 70 by the Professional Coin Grading Service and will ship in their unique PCGS coin slabs.
On the obverse design is a charming rendition of China’s giant panda. It shows the iconic creature casually seated on the floor of its bamboo forest home as it playfully clutches a tree limb. Also engraved unto this side of the coin are its weight, the silver purity and denomination. Customers should note that 2014 will be the last year that the coin’s weight will be measured in ounces due to the mint’s shift to the metric system. Displayed on the reverse side of the coin is one of China’s most sacred buildings, the Temple of Heaven. Serving as a frame to the Temple are the coin’s mintage year and with the phrase “Zhonghua Renmin Gongheguo,” which means “People’s Republic of China” in Chinese.
