The obverse features the Temple of Heaven, which is an actual building located in Beijing. The temple sits atop a shining field. The top inscription translates to “PEOPLE’S REPUBLIC OF CHINA” and the year of issue is inscribed below.
The Panda coins get a new reverse design each year. The 2018 reverse features a closeup view of a panda bear’s face with a bamboo shoot grasped in its paw. The bear’s eyes, ears, and legs have a proof-like finish to represent the famous bi-colored fur pattern of a panda. The coin’s weight, purity, and denomination are inscribed.
The Chinese Mint has been manufacturing Silver Pandas since 1983. All coins’ weight and purity is guaranteed through the People’s Bank of China. Beginning in 2016, the mint abandoned the troy ounce standard and adopted a metric weight system in the making of Panda coins.
All Silver Pandas ship in brilliant uncirculated condition in a plastic capsule. Quantities of 15 ship in a plastic sheet.
