Chinese Silver Coins

Chinese Silver Coins

Chinese Silver Coins carry some of the most famous silver coin designs on the numismatic market. They are produced by the mint’s branches in Shanghai, Shenyang, Beijing, and Shenzhen, all of which also strike circulation coins. Since the first commemorative coin released in 1979, the Chinese Mint has continued to strike incredibly beautiful Chinese Silver Coin series, such as the Lunar-Zodiac Animal coins, as well as the Inventions and Discoveries and the Olympic commemorative coins. Although it had inconsistent beginnings, the most popular Chinese silver coin design is indeed the Chinese Silver Panda, also available in gold versions, which is considered as one of the world’s most treasured bullion coins.

About Chinese Silver Panda Coins

The first Chinese Silver Panda coin was released in 1983, and since then, has become highly desired by collectors and investors all around the world. Each Chinese Panda Silver coin is made of .999 pure silver and celebrates the country’s renowned symbol on the front of the coin – the beloved panda. The reverse panda image changes every year, while the obverse side showcases one of the oldest Chinese Taoist temples in Beijing, the Temple of Heaven and its Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests, along with the inscription “The People’s Republic of China”.

Even though the mint first struck them in a 1 troy ounce size, in  2016, these beautiful pieces began to be produced in a 30-gram size in order to make them more appealing to international customers. They are additionally available in several other size options. The coins come in brilliant uncirculated condition and are offered individually, in sealed sheets, and in monster boxes. The fact that its design is constantly changing makes this outstanding piece the desired addition for those who collect the entire series and a great gift for special occasions or anniversaries.
