Why order this China 2017 Moon Festival 1 oz. Silver Panda Hologram Proof Medal?
This 2017 Chinese 1 oz. Silver Moon Festival Panda Hologram Proof Medal is a great option not only for collectors who like Pandas but also for those who like pieces with unique features. This is the first Moon Festival Panda to bear a hologram image. It was struck at the Shenzhen Guobao China Mint from .999 fine silver and is part of a limited mintage of only 10,000 pieces.
Unique Moon Panda Design
The Great Wall of China dominates the obverse. The holder gets a sense of its massive size with a view from atop the wall, which shows it rising up to a mountaintop. Above is a model of a Huntianyi, a Chinese armillary sphere. Two inscriptions on this face read "China Great Wall" in Chinese and "2017."
On the reverse, a panda stands looking down at the water. That water is a hologram design that reflects the light of the moon, which is above the animal's head. "Full moon and full blossom, perfect bliss on Moon Festival" is inscribed in Chinese characters along the rim, joining the medal's weight and purity, as well as the words "MOON FESTIVAL."
GEM Proof First Releases Moon Label
The Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) certified that this medal is in GEM Proof condition, which is equivalent to Proof 65 or better. That certification, as well as NGC's certification of the piece as a First Releases, has been provided against a backdrop of a moon image.
