2016 China 10-oz Silver High Relief Moon Festival Panda NGC Gem Proof
Ten Ounces of Silver Provide a Beautiful Field For These Lovable Pandas!
The larger the canvas, the more space an artist has to create. And for engravers, 10 ounces spread out over a diameter of 70 millimeters can be tantalizingly massive! On this large field of silver, details can be developed with lifelike detail, the eye catching new and unique elements with each pass. And when you add the latest in high-relief mintage technology, even more visual depth can be achieved. It is, quite literally, an engravers time to shine!
So, when we heard that the latest edition of China’s globally adored Panda Proofs would include a ten ounce edition, we couldn’t wait to see what the China Mint’s designers had in store. Add to that the fact that these would be the first panda Proofs to celebrate the country’s beloved Moon Festival AND would be the first to be struck in high relief, you could say that we were “over the moon!” (Sorry, we couldn’t resist!)
Now, the 2016 Moon Festival Panda™ 10-Ounce Silver Proofs have arrived, and they are BEAUTIFUL. The obverse depicts a mother panda with her cub underneath the light of a gigantic harvest moon, wreathed with the phrases "Full moon and full blossom, perfect bliss Moon Festival" in Chinese, "Moon Festival" in English, and the Proof’s weight, metal and fineness. The reverse details two of China’s engineering marvels -- a section of the Great Wall of China and an ancient Chinese armillary sphere -- along with the year 2016 and the "Z" mintmark.
This 2016 Moon Festival Panda Silver Proof will arrive to you graded Gem Proof by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) in a sonically sealed acrylic case. In addition, you’ll also receive an individually numbered mint certificate of authenticity and colorful story booklet. Only 3,000 of these Proofs will be struck this year. With these being the first Moon Festival Panda ever and the China Mint’s first high-relief panda, collector demand is expected to be overwhelming. Now that you have the chance, don’t let it disappear. Order your piece of history now!
