Beginning in 1983, the Chinese Silver Panda series took off in popularity among avid coin collectors and investors alike. Not only is this a prestigious collection but it offers its followers an opportunity to possess a diverse collection within the same collection. Every year, the reverse design changes to feature a new panda in a new environment. Sometimes, it's a mother panda coddling her young, or it's a Giant panda sitting amidst a forest of luscious bamboo. This feature alone sets this series apart from other popular bullion collections that contain the same reverse design year to year. Your 1993 Chinese Silver Panda displays an inscription, proving the coin is .999 fine silver and comes encapsulated in a mint-sealed airtight container. The coin sports a clean "freshly minted" patina that sets the standard for brilliant uncirculated coins.
Pandas are known to have few enemies and few friends. After they raise their young, they usually get acquainted with a solitary lifestyle that consists of hours and hours foraging for more bamboo. Since this is how pandas are in their natural habitat, it is not surprising there are multiple reverse designs that picture only one panda. The panda on the 1993 reverse is sitting by itself, on the edge of a rocky cliff. There are some lovely bamboo leaves surrounding it since bamboo is so important to the panda lifestyle. The coin's purity, weight, and denomination are also written on the reverse side. The obverse showcases the famous Temple of Heaven, a complex of religious buildings located in Beijing and have been standing since 1409. "The People's Republic of China," is elegantly written in Chinese symbols on the obverse, along with the small font year of mintage. Only a handful of these small date pandas were minted so don't miss your opportunity to own such a remarkable coin!
