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.
Every year, the Chinese Mint puts a different design on the obverse side of its Panda Coins, with the exception of the 2001 and 2002 coins which have the same design.
On the obverse of each 2017 30 Gram Silver Chinese Panda Coin, you will see the image of a giant panda holding a branch of bamboo while eating the leaves off one at a time. The panda sits in front of a wall of bamboo. Also on this side of the coin, you will see the coin’s face value, weight and purity.
The reverse of each of these coins shows an image of the Temple of Heaven, which is a building that is part of a larger religious complex in China. On this side of the coin, you will see the year of issue and “People’s Republic of China” written in Mandarin.
All of the coins in this listing are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. All coins in BU condition won’t have any signs of wear and tear, but they may have some minor flaws. These flaws could include breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces or contact marks created during the coining process.
The Chinese Mint actually has a number of locations across the country, but since none of them use mint marks, you can never tell where individual coins were minted.
