Why does this 10 Yuan 1989 Silver Panda coin belong in your collection?

The Chinese Mint began production of the Silver Panda series in 1983. For the first several years, the coins were sporadically struck, only in proof format. 1989 was a year of significant change for the series, evidenced by the introduction of a bullion variety and an increase in silver purity to .999 fine. This 1989 Panda coin measuring 40 mm in diameter, was struck at the Shanghai branch of the Mint from 1 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver. Final mintage of this inaugural bullion release of the series is reported to be just 255,000 coins.

Distinctive 1989 Panda Design

The reverse, by artist Luo Yonghui, features a single panda nibbling on a snack of bamboo leaves. The background is adorned with a grid pattern, a characteristic which is unique to the 1989 release. Inscriptions include coin's face value "10 Yuan" and ".999 1 OZ. AG."

The Temple of Heaven in Beijing, the Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests, is depicted on the obverse. "People's Republic of China" is inscribed above in Chinese characters, with "1989" below.

This 1989 China 1 oz. Silver Panda ¥10 Coin received the nearly perfect grade of Mint State 69 from Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). The coin is encapsulated in a NGC protective holder with ModernCoinMart's exclusive Temple style certification label.
