Each 2022 15 Gram Gold Chinese Panda available here at Silver.com comes in its own sealed protective pouch from the mint. The coins available here are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition from the Chinese Mint. The Chinese Mint does not use mint marks in its Chinese Panda Series, so there is no way of knowing which of its branch facilities produced and released the coins.
The Silver Pandas were introduced by the Chinese Mint in 1983. The coins were initially offered from 1983 to 1985 as proof coins. The coins available at this time were 27 Grams in weight and had just .900 fine silver content. No coin was issued in 1986. The 1987 coin was also a proof coin, but with 1 Troy ounce of .925 sterling silver. There was no issue again in 1988, followed by a 1989 issue of the first BU coin with 1 Troy ounce of .999 fine silver.
The obverse side of 2022 Gold Chinese Pandas features a depiction of the exterior of the Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests. This building was constructed between 1406 and 1420, and is part of the Temple of Heaven Complex.
On the reverse field of the 2022 15 Gram Gold Pandas is a vision of two Giant Pandas. The Giant Panda is a species of bear that is native to China. The bears live in the central highlands of China and is easily identifiable with its black and white patches of fur. In this design, the pandas are shown sliding down a snowy hill with a 40th-anniversary mark on this side of the coin.
