Since 1984, the Chinese Mint has struck and released low-mintage silver rounds commemorating the annual coin shows that take place around the world. These shows often attract thousands of numismatists, and serve not only as a place for coin lovers to gather and share collections, but for mints to debut some of the latest coin designs coming to market.
The 2016 World Money Fair took place, where it always does, in Berlin, Germany. To mark the occasion, the Chinese Mint produced a special silver round from its Chinese Silver Panda collection that featured different designs on both the obverse and reverse compared to those which normally appear.
On the reverse of each round is the image of two bears, one of them a panda, and set of three replicated coin dies. These dies and letter punches were created by German-based Otto Beh Company for the creation of Chinese coins between 1897 and 1898.
The obverse side of each 2017 1 oz World Money Fair Commemorative Panda Silver Round includes the image of the Berlin Cathedral. Honoring the host city of Berlin, the obverse design also includes the official logo of the World Money Fair. The 2017 edition of the money fair was the 45th, and hosted more than 330 exhibitors and 15,000 visitors.
Chinese Silver Panda coins, and these exclusive Chinese Silver Panda commemorative rounds, are struck by the Chinese Mint, but it does not use mint marks on any of its coins. Primary facilities in the Chinese Mint system include those in Shenzhen, Shanghai, and Shenyang.
