2021 30 g Silver China Panda
China first introduced the Silver Panda coin series in 1983. Each year since, a new design variation of the Panda has been released. This 2021 30 g Silver China Panda is a wonderfully fresh example of the unique designs, which have made the series very popular among collectors and investors alike.
Ready to Climb
Common to the series, the obverse displays an inset image of the Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests in the Beijing Temple of Heaven. Inscriptions include, "People's Republic of China" in Chinese, encircling the top rim. The release year is at the bottom.
The 2021 30 g Silver Chinese Panda reverse design features an adorable close-up view of a young, but growing giant panda cub. It’s amazing the growth a year can make in the life of a panda cub! This little one has matured enough to be ready to climb, that is, with a little help. It is displayed clinging to a large tree branch while its mother helps to steady her growing cub. This wonderful scene fills the entire field. This is a tender and adorable design, which at once captures your eye and warms your heart. Inscriptions include the 10 Yuan face value, and "30 g Ag .999."
Silver Pandas are based on the metric system of measure, containing 30 grams (.9645 ounces) of fine silver. Every coin is guaranteed to be in Gem Brilliant Uncirculated condition and comes in a clear plastic pouch.

The Silver Pandas were first minted in 1983. The first 3 years of mintage were in proof quality condition, and had a limited mintage of 10,000 pieces for each year. No Silver Pandas were struck in 1986, but they have been minted every year since. Each year, the design of the panda changes, making them highly collectible. The only year they didn't change design was 2002, which used the same design as 2001. Beginning with the 2016 release, all the mint's bullion coins were changed to metric weight.
The popularity of the China Panda series has grown exponentially over the years. The panda in Chinese culture is recognized as a symbol of peace and friendship. The Silver Panda's relatively low mintage has not kept pace with the worldwide demand, which makes it of great interest to collectors. And, of course, what's not to love about a bullion series dedicated to one of the most adored animals in the world?
