The giant panda, a creature shrouded in mystery to the Western world until the 19th century, was introduced to Western science by Armand David, a French missionary and naturalist, in 1869. He sent a pelt and a skull to the Natural History Museum in Paris. Today, the Giant Panda stands as the renowned symbol of the Chinese Panda bullion coin series. You can now acquire 2001 Chinese Panda 1 oz Silver Coins online at Provident Metals.
The term “panda” is believed to have its origins in the Nepalese word “ponya,” which means “bamboo-eater.” The word “giant” in their name helps differentiate them from their smaller relative, the red panda.
On the obverse of the 2001 Panda 1 oz Silver Coins, you will find a finely detailed left-profile image of a mature Giant Panda, complemented by an ornate depiction of bamboo surrounding the field. Inscriptions on this side include 1 OZ, AG, .999, and the face value of 10 YUAN.
The reverse side of the 2001 Chinese Panda Silver Coin portrays the Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests. This view of the exterior of the building, facing the main doors, has been a consistent feature on the reverse side since the program’s inception. The Hall of Prayer is part of the Taoist religious site known as the Temple of Heaven Complex. Inscriptions include the nation of issue and the 2001 date mark.
The first successful breeding of giant pandas in captivity occurred in China in the 1960s. Breeding programs aimed at increasing the captive panda population have been crucial to their conservation.
All these 2001 Chinese Panda 1 oz Silver Coins are securely encased in individual acrylic capsules. The Chinese Mint declared a total mintage of 500,000 coins for the 2001 Silver Pandas, with the mintage likely split between a domestic release and a broader international distribution. Notably, the 2001 Silver Panda design was the only one to be repeated, appearing again in 2002.
