The colorized and gilded versions of the Chinese Panda Silver Coin represent the only collectible option in the series at this point. Proof versions of the Chinese Panda were available from 1989 to 1999 on an annual basis, but most collectible options are now privy-marked BU coins, colorized BU coins, or these gilded BU coins with a layer of 24-karat gold applied. Today, you have the opportunity to purchase 2021 Chinese Panda 30 Gram Silver Coins online from Provident Metals.
The release of colorized and gilded Chinese Panda 30 Gram Silver Coins each year comes from the bulk issue of Brilliant Uncirculated coins. Small allotments of BU coins are altered after the coining process is completed to include either a colorized lacquer on the obverse design elements or a thin layer of 24-karat gold on the obverse design field.
A Giant Panda mother and cub are shown in the obverse design of 2021 Chinese Panda 30 Gram Silver Coins. The Chinese Mint uses a new design element on the obverse side each year, with one exception, and this years design depicts a playful cub climbing the trunk of a tree as its mother looks on from below. The inscriptions on this side include 30 g Ag .999 and the face value of 10 Yuan.
The Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests features on the reverse side of 2021 Chinese Panda Silver Coins. This design element has remained the same on the reverse side each year since 1983 when the first proof versions of the coin were released by the Chinese Mint. You can see the exterior facade of the building in this design, with inscriptions above of the nation of issue in Mandarin and the date mark 2021 below.
The Chinese Mint has repeated a design element only once in the Chinese Panda Silver Series. In 2002, the 2001 design of the Giant Panda was repeated. The pushback from numismatists resulted in a swift reversal by the mint in 2003 as it returned to the use of new design elements on the obverse each year.
2021 Chinese Panda 30 Gram Silver Coins in this listing come with a thin layer of 24-karat gold on the primary design element on the obverse. The mother panda and cub have a thin application of gold to create impressive visual contrast. These coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and come with individual protective plastic capsules.
