Chinese Silver Panda coins have a unique minting history not matched by their gold counterparts. The silver coins originated as a proof coin, rather than bullion, from 1983 to 1985, and were suspended for a year in 1986. The coins returned in 1987 with varying weights available, including a bullion version.
Today, the Chinese Mint is introducing new weight markings on all Chinese Panda coins. These 2016 1 Kilo Proof Chinese Silver Panda coins are now weighed and marked in Grams, rather than the traditional Troy ounces used by most mints. This brings the coins in line with the nations use of a metric system.
On the obverse, an all-new image of the panda is featured crawling along the trunk of a tree. This imager is changed every year, and only the 2001 and 2002 coins in the Chinese Silver Panda program featured the same design in back-to-back years.
The reverse bears the image of the outer facade of the Temple of Heaven. A social and religious gathering place in the center of Beijing, the Temple of Heaven has featured on the reverse of the Chinese Silver Panda coin since its introduction.
All Proof Chinese Silver Panda coins are produced by the Chinese Mint. The mint is government controlled and overseen by the Peoples Bank of China, with its production including circulation currency and banknotes for the nation.
