Silver Panda's were first minted in 1983. In 2016 the Chinese Mint changed to a metric system. The 2017 Silver Panda is the second year where the coin has been minted in a metric unit. The Chinese Panda coins are one of the only bullion coins to change its design each year, with exception to the 2001 and 2002 coins which share the same design.
The People’s Republic of China issues and guarantees the quality of each Silver Panda coin. Silver Panda coins are minted from several mints each year. Those mints include but are not limited to Shenzhen, Shanghai and Shenyang. Unlike the U.S. Mint, these Chinese Mints do not incorporate mintmarks to distinguish the difference between each mint. Instead, these mints are known for having minor differences in the design of the coin such as font size, bamboo length and designs of the temple in certain year’s mintages.
