150 years ago, the Western World first discovered the Giant Panda. In 1983, the first China Silver Panda was released, creating a dynasty the likes of which the numismatic world has never seen.
Now you can take home the greatest Silver Panda creation of all time — the world’s first-ever 20-Ounce Silver Panda Cube!
It may be hard to believe, but the Western World only learned of the Panda’s existence 150 years ago!
In the latter half of the 1800s, French missionary Armand David was traveling the East, spreading the Gospel and finding new wild animals he could bring back for display in a French natural history museum.
During his three journeys through China, he recorded 200 species of wild animals. Sixty-three of those animals were unknown to the Western World, including the golden snub-nosed monkey, the Chinese giant salamander and the Chinese takin.
His greatest discovery, however, came when he secured a Panda skin from a local hunter on March 11, 1869. The 150th anniversary of this incredible discovery took place in 2019.
Ever since its introduction in 1982, China’s Panda coin series has been a favorite of collectors around the world, with each year bringing a new, one-year-only Panda design paired with an image of the Temple of Heaven.
In 2019, China has struck a numismatic first to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the West’s introduction to the Panda: the world’s first-ever Kilo Silver Panda Commemorative Cube!
Using state-of-the-art technology, the mint created a six-piece die setup which could bring equal pressure to all six sides of a kilo silver cube. After using multiple strikes to ensure crisp, sharp designs, the artisans at the Mint then used an all-new antiquing process to add additional depth and detail while also making the cube safe to hold without risking damage to its intricate surfaces.
But no numismatic first would be complete without all-new designs.
A “first” of this magnitude could only be made more impressive by using designs from other Panda “firsts.” And that’s just what the Mint has been done!
Thanks to today’s modern striking technology, the artists at the mint were able to strike beautifully re-imagined and fully realized interpretations of some of China’s biggest “firsts.” Designs gracing the first-ever China Kilo Silver Panda Cube include updated versions of the following one-year-only China Panda reverse designs.
Each re-imagined design is struck in incredible detail, bringing new life to some of history’s most sought-after Panda designs. The reverse also features a design that has remained constant throughout the entire China Panda series—the Temple of Heaven.
Created by renowned numismatic artist Tong Fang, the obverse of the 20-Ounce Silver Panda Cube honors the 150th anniversary of the West’s discovery of the beloved animal. In the foreground, a Panda smiles out at the viewer while sitting in a relaxed pose. The background displays an homage to the missionary exploration that led to Armand David’s first encounter with a Panda.
Ms. Tong is renowned in numismatic circles for her Chinese coinage designs, including:
“80th Anniversary of the Victory of Long March of the Chinese Red Army”
Ms. Tong has also been chosen to design the one-year-only Panda reverses for the upcoming 2021, 2023 and 2027 releases.
Struck in 20 Full Ounces of 99.9% Fine Silver
Each China Silver Panda 150th Anniversary Cube contains 20 Troy ounces of pure silver, struck in 99.9% fineness.
Museum-Worthy Display Case
While the all-new antiquing process provides a new level of protection, allowing you to handle this kilo silver cube without a protective capsule, you still can’t be too careful with a release of such historic importance. That’s why each silver panda cube will come with a deluxe display case designed to allow viewing from nearly every direction, as well as a white cotton glove for those wishing to take additional care while handling their latest acquisition.
In addition, you will also receive an individually numbered mint certificate of authenticity, a booklet detailing the story behind this gorgeous Silver Panda Cube, and a personal letter written by Tong Fang, designer of the 2019 Gold and Silver Panda series as well as the all-new obverse of the China 20-Ounce Silver Panda 150th Anniversary Cube. As the letter was originally written in Chinese, an English translation will also be included.
