The Chinese Silver Panda is one of the oldest and most popular silver bullion coin programs available to investors. The beauty of the Silver Panda series comes in the use of a new design on the coins obverse image. Each year, the Chinese Mint uses a new panda image in the series, bringing a collectible touch to the bullion series. Right now, 2015 1 oz Chinese Silver Panda Coins are available to purchase online from JM Bullion.

Each 2017 1 oz Chinese Silver Panda Coin offered from the Chinese Mint in this listing is available in near-perfect condition. A Mint State 69 coin exhibits full, original mint luster with a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. These flaws are limited in nature to minuscule contact marks or hairlines found only outside the primary focal areas of the coin.
Silver Panda coins from the Chinese Mint have a complex history. The coins actually debuted in 1983, but were originally only offered as proof specimens. The introduction of bullion coins in the Silver Panda series did not occur until 1989.
On the obverse of the 2015 Chinese Silver Panda is the image of the giant panda species of bears. In this design, used only in 2015, there is an adult panda featured sitting in front of a bamboo wall while it eats some bamboo. The giant panda gets 99% of its dietary sustenance from bamboo and other greens in the central highlands of China.
The reverse of Chinese Silver Panda coins features the Temple of Heaven. The Temple of Heaven is actually the name of the larger Taoist religious complex within which youll find the building featured on this coin. This building is the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests. The Temple of Heaven complex is found in south-central Beijing and remains sacred to this day.
All Silver Panda coins are struck by the Chinese Mint, but feature no mint marks as bullion coins. The mint does not speak to the mints which handle the production, though it is assumed its primary facilities in Shenyang, Shanghai, and Shenzhen play a role in coining.
