This Year’s Pandas, Captured in Silver Moonlight!

In just over three decades, Chinese Pandas have become one of the most highly anticipated annual releases among collectors. While other famous Proofs rely on a single design from year to year, each Panda series comes to the public with a fresh artistic design. However, 2016 brings more than just a different panda composition -- it commemorates a beloved national holiday while using the latest in engraving technology to create rich detail never seen before from the China Mint. The Moon Festival is one of China’s most important holidays, where families gather together underneath a full autumn moon to give thanks, looking forward to future blessings. It is underneath this moon that the pandas of 2016 gather together in stunning high relief, bowl-shaped detail -- all across a wide 70 millimeter face.

GovMint.com is proud to introduce the 2016 Moon Festival Panda™ 10-Ounce Silver Proof. One side shows a panda cub snuggling close to a mother panda in a forest clearing, a gigantic moon shining from over their shoulders. In addition, the family is surrounded 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 other side features a section of the Great Wall of China along with one of humanity’s first guides to the stars, an ancient Chinese armillary sphere, along with the year 2016 and the "Z" mintmark.

When you order this 2016 Moon Festival Panda 10-Ounce Silver Proof, perfection is assured.
