The Chinese Silver Panda coin is different in a number of ways from its competing sovereign silver coins. First and foremost, the reverse imagery used on the coins changes from one year to the next. Only the 2001 and 2002 Silver Panda coins feature the same image of pandas on the reverse side. Second, it is one of the few sovereign silver coins with a limited mintage. Unlike coins produced by the US Mint, Silver Chinese Pandas do not feature mint marks, making it impossible to identify the facility responsible for production of particular coins.
On the reverse side of the 2015 coin is the depiction of a single panda sitting alone and eating some leaves. A bamboo wall is visible in the background, while the engraving of the coin’s face value (10 Yuan) is included. The obverse side includes the Temple of Heaven from Beijing, with the engravings “People’s Republic of China” in Chinese, and the year of minting.
The Chinese Silver Panda is struck, it is believed, at three different mints in Shenzhen, Shanghai, and Shenyang. Mintage levels in recent years for the coin have been pegged at 8 million.
