  • Description:

    This amazing series has a reputation dating back to 1983 and has only grown in popularity every year. These coins are guaranteed to be premium quality, remarkably designed and struck, and they come in excellent packaging. This and more is what many collectors and investors love about the Chinese Panda coin series. The 1997 Chinese Gold Panda weighs 1/2 ounce of pure gold and is in brilliant uncirculated condition.

    The panda that is showcased on the reverse design of the 1997 panda is most likely a cub, climbing a tree branch. Adult pandas usually do not climb trees but panda cubs do. When a mother panda is spending 16 hours of the day eating, she makes her cub more vulnerable since she isn't in the position to protect her young. The cub will generally tend to climb trees to stay out of the way of danger, especially the yellow-throated marten, a weasel-like animal that preys on panda cubs. On these silver coins, pandas are usually shown with bamboo in some fashion but in this picture, bamboo is nowhere to be found. The reverse also bears the inscription of the coin's purity, weight, and denomination. Unlike many other bullion coins, the Chinese Panda series do not bear mint marks, making it difficult to figure out where the coins were produced. In 1996-1999, the fonts used to mark the dates were different, depending on where the coins were struck, thus having the larger and smaller fonts. The obverse of this silver panda not only displays the Temple of Heaven but also the small date of mintage and "The People's Republic of China."
