Chinese Silver Panda Coin

The Chinese Silver Panda is a series of silver bullion coins issued by the People's Republic of China. It changes its design every year and comes in different sizes, from 0.5 troy oz to 1 kilogram with different denomination reflecting the weight.

The program was started early in the 1980s but in different weight standard early on. These early coins were not 1 troy oz silver. There are several mints that produce these coins, including but not limited to: Shenzhen, Shanghai and Shenyang. Unlike coins made by US mints that carry mintmarks to distinguish their origin, Chinese mints do not employ such scheme. In certain years there are minor variations in the coin design that allow the originating mint to be determined, such as minting year size, temple. An example is 1996 where different mints produce coins with minor variation that can be distinguished from the font size of the year on the obverse side of the coins. The coin designs were made like this (as the pictures show):

Obverse: Depiction of the Temple of Heaven in the center with Chinese characters on top saying "Zhonghua Renmin Gongheguo" meaning People's Republic of China and the bottom the year of issue. If the issue is a commemorative issue, the theme will be marked here also.

Reverse: Different portraits of panda that changes every year (except for 2001 and 2002, which share the same design).

There are many varieties on the types of coins issued as follows:
1. Uncirculated
2. proof
3. Gold Plated / Gilded (either side or both)
4. Colored (only obverse side known)
5. Privy marked for different distribution such as 2001 D (for domestic market)
6. Privy marked for commemorative issue, which can also be gold plated

The official distributor for the panda coins is the China Gold Coin Corporation (CGCC), both for silver and gold version.
