As the new Gram weights gained traction with investors, the Chinese Mint rolled out proof coins with greater regularity in its Chinese Panda bullion series. For the Chinese Panda Silver Coin, this meant a second release of the popular 150 Gram proof that had debuted in 2016. Provident Metals now offers the 2017 Proof Chinese Panda 150 Gram Silver Coin to you for purchase online.
When you purchase one of these 2017 Proof Chinese Panda 150 Gram Silver Coins, you will receive your items with a beautiful black presentation box from the Chinese Mint. Also included with your purchase is a Certificate of Authenticity from the mint. Each coin is a traditional proof with frosted design elements and mirrored background fields.
The obverse design for the 2017 Proof Chinese Panda 150 Gram Silver Coin features an adult Giant Panda seated on its backside. The panda is using both of its paws to clutch onto a long bamboo branch. The bamboo leaf is a favorite in the diet of the Giant Panda and is believed to make up 99% of is dietary sustenance. The Giant Panda is a unique species of bear that is native to China and is often considered an unofficial symbol of the nation.
On the reverse field of the 2017 PRoof Chinese Panda Silver Coin, you will find the design that is a staple of this series. Each year, the Chinese Mint depicts the outer facade of the Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests on the reverse of its Chinese Panda Silver Coins. The same design features on the obverse of the Chinese Panda Gold Coins each year and is always accompanied by inscriptions of the date and nation of issue.
2017 marked just the second year the Chinese Panda bullion series was available in Grams rather than Troy ounces. The previous issues of the silver coin had 1 Troy oz, just over 31 Grams, of .999 pure silver. Starting in 2016, the coin was downsized slightly to an even 30 Grams in weight and maintained its .999 pure silver content. The previous issue year marked the first-ever release of a 150 Gram proof coin, a tradition that continued in 2017.
