Why buy this 2021 $10 British Commonwealth Sovereign Panda Gold Proof?
Pandas have long symbolized the People's Republic of China and continue to enamor animal lovers young and old. In 2011, Tian Tian and Yang Guang, two pandas, arrived at the Edinburgh Zoo on loan from China for a ten year period. During the time, Edinburgh was one of just nine zoos outside of China to have the animals. This first ever Sovereign Panda was issued to mark the tenth anniversary of their arrival in Edinburgh and their departure from it.
Exquisite Pandas Design by "Rocky" Zhao
Obverse: Both faces of this coin bear designs that were created by "Rocky" Zhao, who has designed Chinese Pandas in the past. On the obverse is a right-side portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. She is joined by rim inscriptions of her name, "ELIZABETH II," the name of the issuing territory, "EAST CARIBBEAN STATES," both of the coin's face values, "$10" and "ONE SOVEREIGN," and the date, "2021."
Reverse: The two pandas visiting the Edinburgh Zoo feature on the reverse. They are integrated into a yin-yang symbol, half of which is comprised of a Scottish tartan pattern in a symbol of friendship between Scotland and China. The weight and purity of the coin are inscribed along the rim.
Impeccable PF70 UC FDI with Zhao Signed Label
"Rocky" Zhao hand signed the labels on which Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) provided its grading information. The grading company awarded the coin its highest grade, Proof 70, which means that it appears perfect under 5x magnification. It also certified the coin Ultra Cameo (UC) and First Day of Issue (FDI). The UC designation credits it for exhibiting particularly sharp contrasts between heavily frosted devices and deeply mirrored fields, while the First Day of Issue designation indicates that it was submitted for grading through an exclusive process. This certified coin will arrive with a deluxe presentation case, a storybook providing details about this release, and a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
