Sail One of these 2018 Twelve-Ounce Silver Dragon Boat Show Pandas Into Your Collection

The first time that the China Mint paired a dragon boat with a panda theme was in 1995, and the mintage quickly sold out. Then another came in 2018, and it sold out again! That’s why we feel so lucky to have snared a few of these rare proofs and are making them available exclusively to GovMint customers!

Struck in 12 ounces of highly-pure 99.9% fine silver, these massive Silver Dragon Boat Show Pandas are among only 275 proofs ever struck and come from the last group available from the original distributor. Of that original mintage, only 72 coins have been graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) and NONE have been graded by the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS). Of those 72 coins, only 14 grade higher than the beauties we have available in this offer – an even dozen that have been graded by NGC as being in near-perfect Proof-69 Ultra Cameo (PF69UC) condition, a distinction that means these almost-flawless proofs showcase impressive full strikes and indistinguishable imperfections – well above and beyond the quality of the vast majority of proofs in the series.

Struck at China’s Shanghai Mint to celebrate San Francisco’s world-famous Chinatown and the Santa Clara Coin Expo, these specially-issued show proofs feature three pandas on the obverse and a dragon boat race on the reverse. Measuring a whopping 80 mm in diameter – that’s more than three inches! – the proof’s frosted details majestically rising from deep mirror surfaces are a sight to behold! The design shines a light on the California Dragon Boat Association’s Annual Northern California International Dragon Boat Festival held in the San Francisco Bay Area. Each year during the two-day festival, hundreds of colorful 40-foot dragon boats race to the beat of Chinese drums, all paying tribute to the vibrant pageantry of Chinese culture and entertainment.

Only 12 of these rare, hard-to-find proofs are left in our vault. Secure yours now because once the word gets out that we have a few of these highly sought-after pieces collectors will be racing to get their hands on them! So, don’t delay; secure yours now!

  • THE LAST FEW – Only 275 of these proofs were struck in the original mintage and of those only 12 are available!
  • ONLY THE SECOND TIME EVER – This marks just the second time in history that the China Mint has featured a dragon boat on a panda-themed coin. The only other time was back in 1995 and almost immediately sold out!
  • A GIANT COIN FOR GIANT PANDAS – Measuring 80 mm in diameter, this proof is truly befitting of the Giant Panda. Made of 12 ounces of 99.9% fine silver, this coin is the ultimate for anyone collecting pandas!
  • NIGH FLAWLESS – Each coin is graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being in Proof-69 Ultra Cameo (PF69UC) condition – just one point away from a perfect grade!

Don’t wait; sail one of these 2018 China 12-Ounce Silver Dragon Boat Show Panda into your collection! With just 12 available, you’ll need to out-race a host of other collectors to reserve one to your cart!
