Engaging Panda Design Features Actual Jade Gemstone
Struck in a full ounce of 99.9% fine silver, it features one of China’s iconic panda bears climbing up the branches of a bamboo tree, his eye gazing longingly at the moon shimmering above in the evening sky — only the moon has been replaced by a jade gemstone! It’s a captivating design that’s sure to capture anyone’s heart! The reverse design is no slouch either. It depicts the Great Wall of China with an insert floating above that represents the Chinese map of the Heavens — a sphere that dates back to the 1st Century B.C.
