2016 China 10 Yuan 30g Silver Panda NGC MS70 Early Releases Struck at Shenzhen Mint
Introduced in 1983, Silver Panda coins are produced at the Chinese Mint's facilities in Shanghai, Shenyang, and Shenzhen. Although the coins do not carry specific Mint marks, some releases can be identified by variety. The 2000 issue features two major varieties, distinguished by a frosted or mirrored obverse inscription ring. This 40 mm diameter 2000 Panda bullion coin, with a distinctive frosted ring, is a product of the Shenzhen Mint, struck from 1 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver.
A single Giant Panda is illustrated in a seated pose on the reverse, holding a long branch of bamboo in its paw, contrasted against a background adorned with an intricate bamboo leaf pattern. The image is accompanied by the inscriptions "Ag .999 1 oz" and "10 Yuan."
The Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests in the Temple of Heaven in Beijing is depicted on the obverse, surrounded by a frosted ring containing the inscriptions "People's Republic of China" above in Chinese characters, with "2000" below.
This coin carries the Early Releases pedigree and certified by NGC in perfect-strike MS70.
