One-Year-Only Designs Struck in 99.9% Gold and Silver
One of the most enticing elements of the Gold and Silver Pandas is their one-year-only designs. For 2020, artist Song Lina has created an adorable scene of a young panda cub leaning back as it enjoys a leafy snack.
Another important element is that each coin comes struck in 99.9% fineness in either gold or silver and bears a legal-tender value. That value, along with the coin's weight and fineness, come backed by the authority of the Chinese government.
Mint-Identified Sets Certified Flawless and First Day of Issue (FDI) and First Releases®
When collectors seek out the latest issues of a popular series, they often look for the highest quality, freshest, most crisp coins possible. One of the ways they do that is by seeking out coins graded by NGC as flawless Mint State-70 (MS70) condition, certified as either First Day of Issue (FDI), meaning they were secured from the mint on the very first day of release, or First Releases, meaning they were secured by NGC for grading within 30 days of the mintage's release.
Each coin in these Mint-Identified Sets comes certified by NGC as FDI or First Releases.
