The Chinese Panda Coins are available in both gold and silver versions. The Silver Panda Coins were first issued in 1983 as proof coins only, and the release of the bullion version didn’t start until 1988. Six years before the bullion version of the Silver Chinese Pandas were available, the Gold Chinese Pandas first appeared in the precious metals market.
The reverse of the 2017 30 Gram Silver Chinese Panda includes the outer facade of the Temple of Heaven. Engravings on this side include the Mandarin-language text of “People’s Republic of China,” as well as the year of issue for the coins.
On the obverse of the 2017 30 Gram Silver Chinese Panda is the newest panda design from the Chinese Mint, which depicts a large panda sitting on its hind quarters as it eats some bamboo shoots. The typical engravings and design features included again this year feature the bamboo wall in the background, and the face value of the coin in Yuan.
