Like many other silver bullion coin programs, the Silver Chinese Panda comes with only one weight available to investors.

Each of the 2021 30 Gram Silver Chinese Pandas in this listing comes with a gilded layer on the obverse. The application of gilded layers combines the brilliance of gold with the beauty of silver in a single coin. The thin layer of 24-karat gold on the obverse of these coins helps to create visual contrast between the design element and its background field. These coins are available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition with protective plastic capsules.
Silver Chinese Pandas were introduced in 1983 at the Chinese Mint. The original coins were 27-gram specimens with .900 fine silver content. Moreover, those original releases were proof silver coins, rather than Brilliant Uncirculated coins. In 1987, the coins were again issued as proof specimens, this time with 1 Troy ounce of .925 (sterling) silver content. It wasn’t until 1989 that a 1 Troy ounce .999 fine silver coin was released in a BU version.
The obverse side of 2021 30 Gram Silver Chinese Pandas comes with a new image of the Giant Panda species. In this year’s exclusive design, the Giant Pandas are featured with a young cub climbing the trunk of a tree as a mother supports the cub from below. The Giant Pandas in this design element have a 24-karat layer of pure gold.
On the reverse field of the 2021 Silver Chinese Panda is a depiction of the main building in the Temple of Heaven Complex. This building is known as the Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests and is the main Taoist structure inside of the religious complex. The Temple of Heaven was built between 1406 and 1420 during the Ming Dynasty.
