BOLD Collector Set: Silver Pandas
BOLD has made it easy to buy coins that are thematically grouped into sets. BOLD Collector Sets feature single coins while BOLD Stacker Sets include tubes of each coin in the set. BOLD Sets are also a great gift option for that special coin collector in your life. Check back often as we add new sets regularly!
This BOLD Collector Set contains one each of the first three 30 gram China Silver Panda releases. Each coin comes in a mint-sealed capsule. This 3-coin set features one of the most consistently performing silver bullion coins worldwide. The series’ popularity continues to grow among both bullion investors and collectors alike. The Silver Panda’s relatively low mintage has not kept pace with growing worldwide demand, which is of great interest to collectors. The panda in Chinese culture is recognized as a symbol of peace and friendship. And, of course, what’s not to love about a bullion series dedicated to one of the most adored animals in the world?
The Silver Panda series was first introduced in 1983, and has featured a new panda design each year. The offering of a fresh new design for each release has collectors anxiously snatching them up as soon as they release. Annual pre-release sales are always strong.
From 1983-2015, the coins were minted in troy oz weight. In 2016, the Mint changed their bullion releases to adopt the metric standard.
With a total of 90 grams .999 fine silver, the releases include:
The first coin in the set introduces the new metric weight. This 2016 Silver Panda is released containing 30 grams of .999 fine silver. The reverse design is one of the most unique in a number of years. The coin features a full profile of a panda, stretched out, comfortably reclining on a tree branch. Its eyes are closed, and both arms wrapped in a hug around the branch. This is truly an adorable pose that will be a favorite among collectors!
The second coin in the set features a beautiful single Giant Panda, casually sitting on a grassy area. Clasping a bamboo shoot with both paws, the panda’s full attention is on the greenery of the branch. The mix of various textures and select, proof-like finishes simulates the black and white fur of the panda. This is a great design that will add a nice variety and value to your collection!
The third coin in the set features a bold, close-up view of a single Giant Panda. Its head nearly fills the entire field, with just the top of its shoulders visible. The focus is on the panda’s expression, as it gazes intently on the leafy bamboo branch in its paw. This is a wonderful design, which at once captures your eye (and your heart)!
