Silver & Gold pandas have extremely limited mintage's and are the most sought after government minted bullion coin in the world.The People's Republic of China, including the mints of Shenzhen, Beijing, Shenyang and Shanghai, has been striking Gold and Silver Pandas for over 30 years. The series quickly became one of the most auspicious of the 1980's, after Gold Pandas were first released in 1982, followed by the Silver Panda in 1983. With new designs revealed each year and highly-limited release numbers, collectors eagerly await each new coin, making them sought-after additions to any gold or silver portfolio.
Provident Metals provides a considerable array of gold and silver Chinese coins, each displaying a different image of the country’s much-adored national treasure, the Giant Silver Panda.
As a result of habitat loss and low birthrates, the revered Panda is an endangered species, with fewer than 2000 living in the wild today. Despite its distinction as a national treasure and its revered history as a symbol of strength and endurance, the Giant Panda has assumed near obscurity in ancient Chinese art. There are few, if any, artistic depictions prior to the twentieth century. This makes the Chinese Gold and Silver Panda an even more exciting piece of Chinese--and likewise world--history.
On the obverse of each beautiful Chinese coin is the depiction of the Temple of Heaven, one of the world’s most commendable architectural feats. Built between 1406 and 1420, the Temple of Heaven was engineered during Emperor Yongle’s reign to commemorate the Winter Solstice. More than 550 years later, the temple was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1988.
