First issued by the People's Republic of China in 1983, the Chinese Silver Panda bullion coin is the most popular modern Chinese coin, known among collectors for its unique design that changes each year. The Chinese Silver Panda is made of one troy ounce of 99.9% silver with a face value of 10 yuan and considered legal tender. The coin’s purity, weight and content are guaranteed by the People’s Bank of China.
In 2016, the People's Republic of China began minting Silver Pandas in metric system sizes to better suit the international appeal of the coins. Therefore, 2016 coins and all future Silver Panda coins will be issued in grams instead of ounces. Over the years, several Chinese mints have produced Silver Panda coins, including Shenzhen, Shanghai and Shenyang. Issued by several different mints, the coin is allowed to have minor variations in design, which has greatly contributed to the coin’s international popularity.
The obverse design of the Silver Panda coin features an intricate image of the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvest located inside the Temple of Heaven in Beijing. Around the edge is an inscription in Chinese that reads “Zhonghua Renmin Gongheguo,” which translates to “People’s Republic of China.” The date of issue rests under the image of the Temple of Heaven at the bottom of the coin.
The reverse highlights the uniqueness of the coin as it is the design on this side that is modified annually. The beloved and rare giant panda always appears on the coin in some form, and in some years, the reverse has featured a group of pandas. Typically seen in the upper right-hand corner, the coin’s value is marked with the number 10 and the Chinese symbol for yuan. At the very bottom, the coin’s weight is listed in grams along with “Ag .999” to verify the purity. Coins issued before 2016 will display the weight in ounces instead of grams.
