The Chinese Mint introduced the Silver Chinese Panda coin for the first time in 1983. The coins did not have a standardized weight or purity in that first year and were proof specimens. The coins generally weighed less than 1 Troy oz at this time and had a purity of .900. The first increase in purity came in 1986 when .925 purity was introduced. It wasn’t until 1989 that bullion Silver Pandas were offered annually with 1 Troy oz of .999 fine silver.
Since 2016, the Silver Chinese Panda coin has been issued with a 30 Gram measurement instead. The coins now weigh slightly less than 1 Troy oz and come with the same .999 fine silver content.
On the obverse of 30 Gram Silver Chinese Panda Coins, you’ll find new designs of the Giant Panda each year. The Chinese Mint famously changes its popular Giant Panda designs for every new release. The coins in this listing could feature obverse designs such as a lone panda crawling along a fallen tree trunk (2016), a single panda sitting with a bamboo shoot in its paws (2017), a close-up design focusing on a Giant Panda’s face (2018), or the heartwarming image of a mother cradling her cub (2019).
The reverse of Silver Chinese Panda Coins always features the same design elements. On this side of the coin is a building known as the Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests. The building is the largest structure and primary building within the greater Temple of Heaven complex, one of four religious sites located in Beijing.
These 30 Gram Silver Chinese Panda Coins are available from random years in this Silver.com listing. Silver.com guarantees you’ll receive a 30 Gram Silver Chinese Panda coin issued from 2016 onward in this weight by the Chinese Mint. We cannot, however, guarantee the design on the obverse and the date mark on the coin. If you purchase multiples, you could receive several coins with the same design.
