First-Ever China New Year Panda Celebration Panda Proofs Now Available

Announcing an All-New Panda Proof From the Shanghai Mint!

The largest of the three biggest annual festivals held in China, the Chinese New Year Festival dates back to ancient times. Held over a 15-day period, it marks the end of winter and the beginning of spring, and is a time for families and friends to come together for several nights of reunions, food, gifts and celebration.

With each new year of the lunar cycle, a different animal is used to identify the year and the traits of those born during that year. There are 12 zodiac animals: the Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig.

2020 marks the beginning of a new lunar cycle and a release of the all-new New Year Celebration Panda proofs struck by the Shanghai Mint!

The China New Year Celebration Panda Proof
For years, collectors around the world have been celebrating China’s Moon Festival with the Moon Festival Panda™ series. Now you can celebrate China’s largest annual festival with new gold and silver proofs that brings together classic and exciting new elements.

This all-new series displays a Panda, a Chinese Dragon Float and the Chinese character “Fu.” One of the most common words or characters to be displayed during Chinese New Year, Fu means “good luck” or “blessings.” The Fu character is often found on traditional red gift envelopes, posters, calendars and other items associated with Chinese New Year.

The obverse displays the Temple of Heaven, an iconic image that has graced China Panda coins for decades.

Ultra High Relief Proof Condition
For this first-ever release, standard relief simply wouldn’t cut it. That’s why the Shanghai Mint has struck these Silver and Gold China New Year Celebration Pandas in Ultra High Relief Proof condition. These pieces display frosted devices that sit incredibly high over mirrored fields for an outstanding level of contrast. Add in the rich detail of this first-year design, and you have a piece that no China Panda collector can live without.

Bring Luck Into the New Year
In Chinese culture, the number “8” is considered very lucky. For example, parents will seek out “lucky” paper currency with multiple 8’s in their serial numbers as gifts for Chinese New Year. The more 8’s, the greater the luck! Keeping this important cultural idea in mind, the China New Year Celebration Panda Proofs come struck in 88 grams of 99.9% fine silver or 99.9% pure gold, as well as 888 grams of 99.9% fine silver—and you can secure all three proofs in one amazing set!
