A Red Moon Rises Over the New 2019 Moon Festival Pandas

The origins of China’s Moon Festival can be traced back more than 3,500 years, with each festival celebrating the gathering of friends and family, giving thanks for the harvest bounty and praying for future blessings of longevity, family and prosperity.

Since 2015, the Moon Festival Panda program has provided collectors with beautiful commemoratives, each featuring something that sets it apart from other Panda releases – features like space-flown gold, holographic designs and more. In 2019, for the first time ever, the Moon Festival Panda series features a special “Blood Moon” color-enhanced Red Jade inset.

A Blood Moon happens during a total eclipse, when sunlight refracted by the Earth’s atmosphere gives the Moon a reddish appearance. In 2019, a Blood Moon was visible in China on July 17 – just a few weeks before the Moon Festival was celebrated in mid-September. That celestial oddity is effectively captured on this year’s Moon Festival Panda. The superb design shows a panda taking a break from climbing a bamboo tree while the Blood Red Moon floats behind him – only the moon is actually a red jade gemstone embedded into the surface of the medal! The reverse design depicts the Great Wall of China with an insert floating above that represents the Chinese map of the Heavens.

This impeccably crafted 2019 China Moon Festival Panda is struck in two full ounces of highly pure 99.9% silver at China’s famed Shenzhen Mint. Each was expertly crafted from hand-selected planchets, polished dies and multiple strikes to produce beautifully frosted details rising over mirror-like fields. In fact, the medals are so fresh and spectacular that the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) has graded them as being in flawless Proof-70 Ultra Cameo (PF70UC) condition, a distinction that means your perfectly-graded proof will have ZERO imperfections – showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended.

In addition, NGC has graded your Silver Moon Festival Panda Proof to be a First Releases (FR) issue, meaning it was received by NGC or an NGC-approved depository by the release date or on the business day within 24 hours of the official release date. Collectors seek out coins and medals with this type of certification because it means that they were produced with new dies and exhibit sharper strikes and deeper mirrors than those struck later.
