Chinese Silver Panda coins were first introduced in 1983, and struck sporadically through 1987. From that point forward, Chinese Panda coins were issued by the government of the Peoples Republic of China on an annual basis.
Chinese Panda coins are minted each year in both gold and silver, and have featured a brand new reverse image of the native panda bear every year with the exception of 2001 and 2002. The coins in this product listing mark the 18th consecutive year of production for the Chinese Silver Panda variant.
On the reverse face of the coin is the latest panda image to feature in the series. The traditional wall of bamboo is featured in the background of the design, while a loveable panda bear is shown grasping the trunk of a fallen tree. The face value, weight, metal content, and purity of the coins are engraved on this side.
The obverse features the Temple of Heaven from central Beijing as the heart of the design. Above the design are Chinese characters that translate into English as Peoples Republic of China. Below the design is the year of issue.
The Chinese Mint is a government-run facility that coordinates with the Peoples Bank of China to produce bullion, proof, and circulation coinage for the country. Chinese Mint facilities do not issue mint marks to denote where products are struck and distributed from.
