First released in 1983, the China Mint's Silver Panda series is one of the most popular annual coin releases on the face of the earth. Debuting to a keen collector demand more than 35 years ago, it has continued to grow in popularity every year since. There’s no debate about its place among the world’s hierarchy of top-selling coins, but one can’t help but wonder why this superb silver series is so sought after by so many?

The easy answer is that it checks off all the boxes collectors are looking for in the coins they purchase. Is it struck in highly-pure 99.9% silver? Check. Are these coins hard to get outside of China? Check – thanks to a growing middle class in China and a desire to purchase precious metals and anything that celebrates their nation’s rich cultural heritage, very few of the coins make it outside China’s border. Are these coins legal-tender bullion coins? Yes – each is 10 Yuan legal tender in China.

Pure silver, hard to find, legal tender…. these are all good reasons to collect these silver beauties, but frankly, we'd like to think that it's because each year brings an absolutely adorable giant panda design, struck for one year only! No matter what year you began collecting Silver Pandas, they’re sure to elicit a pride and joy within your collection. And thanks to a recent purchase, GovMint has come across a wide selection of back-dated Silver Pandas. This is the perfect opportunity to fill in missing years in your collection, start a new collection or just acquire more of your favorite coins!

In this offering you can secure the 1989 One-Ounce Silver Panda. It’s a magnificent coin that will come in gleaming Brilliant Uncirculated (BUI) condition, just as fresh and crisp as the day it left the mint. Don’t wait, add this spectacular Silver Panda to your collection today!
