New York City, NY, October 27, 2016 ( - The latest 2017 Silver Panda coins - soon available at Bullion Exchanges!

Released for the first time in 1982 (Gold) and 1983 (Silver), the Chinese Panda is one of the most eagerly awaited collectibles on the bullion market. Numismatic enthusiasts are anxiously anticipating each coin issue due to their yearly changing reverse image, each year depicting a new representation of the country’s beloved panda bear (with a single exception – 2002 sharing the same design as 2001).

The People’s Bank of China announced that the silver versions of the coin series would be available as of the 28th of October. However, the coins are expected to be in stock in US close to mid-December. The bank also revealed this year’s reverse side of the coin, showcasing a single panda bear sitting down on a bamboo background. The lovely panda is eating a large bamboo branch from its hands, being another stunning representation of this beloved Chinese icon. This beautiful image also contains the coin’s denomination, weight, and purity. The 2017 design is reminiscent of the coin’s 2015 issue, having as a concept the same elements but an opposite perspective, being referred by some sources as created by a new designer of the mint, although this information is not confirmed yet.

On the obverse side of the coin is depicted the image of the famous Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests of the Chinese Taoist temple – the Temple of Heaven from Beijing. This exceptional image is surrounded by the Chinese characters "中华人民共和国," which mean “People’s Republic of China” and the coin’s year of issue “2017”.

The 2017 Chinese Silver Panda will continue the metric system era by being struck from 30 grams of .999 fine silver, with a limited mintage of 10,000,000 coins and a ¥10 Yuan denomination.
