Why buy this 1 oz Platinum Proof 2020 China Smithsonian Panda 20th Anniversary Medal?

China loaned two pandas, long symbols of the proud nation, to the Smithsonian National Zoo in 2000. The two are set to return to China in 2021. In 2020, they gave birth to the third cub that they have had in Washington, DC. This medal, which shows the three pandas together, marks the 20th anniversary of their stay in America's capital city which happened in 2020.

  • This medal was struck from 1 oz of .9995 fine platinum.
  • The medal was struck to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Mei Xiang & Tian Tian at the Smithsonian National Zoo.
  • This piece is concave and has a proof finish.
  • It is part of a mintage of just 75 pieces.
  • Numismatic Guaranty Corporation graded this piece Proof 70.
  • NGC certified this medal Ultra Cameo and First Day of Issue.

Moving Pandas Design by Tong Fang

Obverse: The obverse features a pair of designs, one from China and one from the United States. The Great Wall of China is in the upper left, and the Smithsonian Castle is in the lower right. Inscriptions on this face include "SMITHSONIAN INSTITUTION," "2020," and an inscription in Mandarin.

Reverse: This concave face of the proof features a design by Tong Fang. The two pandas that are on loan to the National Zoo look down at their cub. The medal's weight and purity, "1 OZ PT 999," are inscribed at the bottom, while the adult panda's names, "MEI XIANG & TIAN TIAN," join the occasion, "20TH ANNIVERSARY," on the rim at the top. Just inside that inscription is one in Mandarin, which includes the anniversary dates, "2000-2020."
