This stunning medal was struck by the Shenzhen Guobao Mint in high relief, out of 2 oz. of .999 fine silver.

Last and most importantly - this is only the second Silver Panda in history to show the moon in the panda design! This is to honor the Chinese Moon Festival - a celebration very important in Chinese culture. Only 2,000 of these have been struck!
What is the design of the 2 oz. Silver High Relief Moon Festival Panda?
The reverse of this medal shows a stunning image of a mother panda and her cub, with their backs to the moon. This design shows extraordinary detail, particularly with the high relief strike. The inscriptions "Moon Festival" and "2oz Ag .999" are present.
The obverse of the medal is a beautiful image of the Great Wall of China. The wall is built directly on the crest of a range of mountains and stretches off into the distance.
