The Chinese Silver Panda series began in 1983 as an option for a less expensive collection from the Chinese Gold Panda series. Ever since, popularity has taken off and the Chinese Silver Panda series have become one of the most loved bullion collections to be minted. Among the popular following are mature coin collectors and experienced investors, who understand what a treasure and investment this series is. It's also not hard to deny this magnificent series when comparing its competitive packaging with other bullion collections. Each coin is authentically mint-sealed in a capsule, which provides ideal protection against scratching, toning, and any other wearing on the coin. They also each weigh one solid ounce of pure silver and display the impeccable finish that is expected of brilliant uncirculated coins.
On the reverse, a panda cub is desperately wrapped around a small branch, while trying to reach the tree's fruit. Adult pandas do not normally climb trees but in an effort to protect itself from harm's way, panda cubs will climb trees as its mother finishes her meal. The panda pictured is also surrounded by realistically detailed leaves and branches. The reverse also bears the coin's purity, denomination, and weight for further authentication. The obverse contains a remarkable portrayal of the world famous, Temple of Heaven. Being on one of the first stops among tourists, this incredibly old building possesses tons of history representative of each emperor. The temple was built in 1409 and has seen its share of change of powers, wars, and inhabitants. This temple can be visited among Beijing's modern day busy streets. The obverse also bears the inscription, "The People's Republic of China," and the coin's year of mintage, presented in a large font.
