The 2016 issue of Silver Chinese Panda coins marked a stunning change in the coins from this silver bullion series. The coins are no longer available with weights measured in Troy ounces anymore. There is a shift in the weights to Grams, bringing the coins in line with the nation’s use of the metric system.
All of the same Silver Chinese Panda coin weights are still available, with slight changes in the total fine weight. These 30 Gram Silver Chinese Panda coins replace the previously issued 1 Troy oz Silver Chinese Panda, with the same metal content and purity, but measurements and markings in Grams instead.
All 2017 30 Gram Silver Chinese Panda Coins in this product listing are available in Mint State 70 condition. Coins in this condition exhibit full, original mint luster and lack all detracting flaws on the surface areas. Early Release coins are those which arrive at the NGC or an approved third-party depository within the first 30 days of the 2017 release date, as set by the Chinese Mint.
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.
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.
