Default Lunar Panda series by Shenyang mints

Below you will find a brief history around the Shenyang Mint and the Lunar Panda Series. Here is a brief paragraph found in the document.

"Initially, the intention was commencing the series using the horse. However, due to the limitations of time in designing and planning, the quality of the medal would have been impacted. Also, the horse is ranked as number 7 of 12 Lunar, which 7 in mandarin means "fail" and "going" in Chinese culture, so all decided to delay and wait one year and commence the first medal on Goat year.

In additional of the above reason, Goat is ranked number "8"of the 12 lunar which means lucky and prosperous. The kindness story of Goat is another reason for us to pick the goat as first year of the Lunar for this series."

History:

LUNAR PANDA SERIES
2015 Shenyang Mints has jointly worked with private sponsors to commission a new "Panda Lunar" medal series. The first panda lunar year is "Yi Wei Year of the Goat 乙未羊年三羊开泰"

Why the medal sponsors commences the first lunar year from "GOAT" NOT other lunar year?
Rat, Cow, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig即子(鼠)、丑(牛)、寅(虎)、卯(兔)、辰(龙)、巳(蛇)、午(马)、未(羊)、申(猴)、酉 (鸡)、戌(狗)、亥(猪)are the 12 Chinese Lunar ZODIAC sequence. Initially, the intention to commence the first medal from horse due to the limitation of time in designing and planning which will affect the quality of the medal and horse is ranked as number 7 of 12 Lunar which 7 in mandarin means "fail" and "going"in Chinese culture so all decide to delay and wait for one year and commence the first medal on Goat year.
In additional of the above reason, Goat is ranked number "8"of the 12 lunar which means lucky and prosperous. The kindness story of Goat is another reason for us to pick the goat as first year of the Lunar for this series.
Grain is not in existence on the earth during the ancient prehistoric times. A Kind hearted Goat from heaven visit the earth and discover the starving human with pale face and thin body. He secretly return to the heaven and steal the grain to plant it on earth. The master of heaven Jade emperor is very angry and executed the goat and eaten his meat. The next years, the goat execution place has grown grass and little lamb. Jade emperor decides to select 12 animals as human 12 lunar zodiac as assigned as god. Human unanimously elected Goat as one of the Lunar Zodiac due to his kindness to them. Jade emperor still anger on the grain stolen case but no choice to fulfill the human demand.

Daddy, mommy and kid are selected instead of one goat in the medal is to show the joyful of happy family too.

Why panda?
Panda is the endanger animal which is the national treasure of China and one of the oldest animal in biological science. China government recognizes Panda as a symbol of friendship with foreign countries in diplomatic occasions. Thus, panda is chosen.

Why Great wall of China?

The Great Wall of China is one of the ten wonders of the world. Great Wall start building from Spring and Autumn war Dynasty till Ming Dynasty which across two thousand years with total length of 21,196.18 km. World Heritage Committee comments that "The Great Wall of China" as the world's longest military installations with high value in the arts and culture and importance in the history and strategy.

The Lunar Panda Rooster will use "grams" instead of "oz" due to the change of China coin weight measurement from year 2016. After several discussions and much effort, we certificate of authenticity will show the designers name.

The design concept of this panda; Panda is China symbolic and friendship symbolic for diplomat relationship between China and other countries. The walking panda on Great Wall concept would bring us the message of "Panda" is going to other countries and bringing the friendship message to the world.

his is the third lunar in the series which continue the happy family concept which with rooster (daddy), hen (mommy) and chicks (kids). The one-child policy, a part of the family planning policy of China was introduced between 1978 and 1980 with certain exceptions and ethnic's minorities were exempt. The one child policy has abolished from 1 January 2016 and new law has effective. Therefore, the design has 2 chicks instead of 1 as comparing to previous 2 years lunar design.

The designer also thoughtfully added lychee fruits (荔枝) as background. The closely pronunciation of chicken with Lychee fruits will become "auspicious" "鸡荔 吉利". Please counts the number of Lychee in the design photo which you will realize auspicious number.

Mintage :499
Material : .999 silver 62 gram
Casting : Shenyang Mint







Price at 300 SGD
