New for 2023! Spectacular China Moon Festival Panda Proofs Like You’ve Never Seen Them!

Here’s Why Collectors Go Crazy for China Festival Moon Pandas
It’s really no surprise when you think about it. Since the introduction nine years ago in 2015, the China Moon Festival Panda series has been setting a very high bar for design innovations. The initial release started it all with pieces featuring space-flown gold. 2016 saw the introduction of the first Piedfort pieces. 2017 brought special holographic accents. 2018 and 2019 featured the first-ever White and Red Jade gemstones embedded in the reverse. 2020 saw the first-ever titanium piece, 2021 brought us a Moon Festival Panda that featured a unique combination of both super incuse and high relief, and 2022 brought a reverse featuring a special, selectively plated, blackened metal finish on the Panda Bear and a special “Lucky-8” privy mark to celebrate the eighth year of production. 

So, what’s the design innovation this year, in 2023? You’ll want to keep reading to find out.

 

What Is the China Moon Festival Anyway?
By commemorating the Moon Festival, also known as the Mid-Autumn Festival, these limited edition collectibles are honoring one of the largest and most important holiday celebrations in China, a tradition that can be traced back to the Zhou Dynasty over 3,000 years ago. Like Thanksgiving in the U.S., it’s a time when families and friends across China gather to give thanks for the harvest bounty, and pray for future blessings of longevity, family and prosperity. 



Why the 2023 Moon Festival Pandas Are Spectacularly Amazing?
This year, the Moon Festival Panda reverse features “shimmering effect” surfaces along the leafy bamboo and Moon portion of the design—an effect created through special technology that optically elicits color by reflecting light off of hundreds of different angles etched into the “colored” areas of the design. In addition, the black and white elements of the Panda Bear offer contrasting Proof and Frosted surfaces to create the “color.” 

To add the cherry on top, the 2023 release includes the first-ever eight-ounce gold Moon Festival Panda!

 


Struck in 99.9% Gold and Silver
You have your choice of individual Moon Festival Panda Proofs struck in 888 grams, eight ounces and one ounce of 99.9% gold and eight ounces and 88 grams of 99.9% silver. Or you can combine gold and silver Pandas in a 2023 Moon Festival Panda, consisting of proofs struck in one-ounce gold, eight-ounce silver and 88-gram silver.

 

Exquisite Proof Finish Offers a Higher Degree in Quality, and Scarcity
Proofs like these are struck to a much higher standard of beauty, quality, and craftsmanship than circulated and uncirculated coins. Proof planchets (blanks) are specially treated, hand-polished, and cleaned to ensure high-quality strikes, then fed into presses fitted with specially polished dies, and struck at least twice, unlike regular coins which are struck only once. The extra strikes give proofs a glamorous shine and make intricate, razor-sharp details of the design pop against polished, mirror-like fields. While regular coins are struck on high-speed presses by the thousands, proofs are individually struck by highly skilled artisans focused on creating masterpieces. Collectors love proofs not only because they’re the best quality, but also because their mintages are typically low. 


All New One Year Only, Ultra-High Relief Designs
Both sides of each of these 2023 Moon Festival Pandas were struck in Ultra-High Relief (UHR), so all of the rich detail from each image literally jumps from the proof’s surface. The reverse depicts a Panda Bear nestled in a leafy bamboo patch with a full moon hovering in the night sky. This handsome design is the work of esteemed Chinese Panda designer Song Fei—the same designer who created the handsome 2021 to 2022 Four Guardians Proof series and 2019 Unicorn Vault Protector Proof. The obverse depicts a model of the Chinese ancient Huntianyi (armillary sphere), the Great Wall of China, “China Great Wall” in Mandarin Chinese, and the year date 2023.

 

The Famous “Z” Mint Mark
These beautiful pieces are each struck at China’s Shenzhen Guobao Mint, and they include a small, uncommon “Z” mint mark on the bottom left side of the obverse. The “Z” mint mark is rarely used on China’s Panda-series releases, so its inclusion on these Moon Festival Pandas is a very distinctive touch.


Certified Absolutely Perfect, with Special Designations
Through this exclusive offer, you can secure the best of the best, and also the first of the best! Each gold and silver 2023 Moon Festival Panda proof comes certified by Numismatic Guaranty Company (NGC) as perfect Proof-70 Ultra Cameo (PF70 UC) condition, as well as First Day of Issue (FDI), meaning each piece was received for grading within 24 hours of the official mint release. These Moon Festival Pandas are perfect, and they’re fresh, from the mint on the very first day.

 

Lucky Low Mintages. Very Low.
Mintages for these Moon Festival Panda Proofs are severely limited. Just eight 888-gram Gold Moon Festival Pandas were minted, along with only 15 eight-ounce gold, just 188 one-ounce gold, just 488 eight-ounce silver, and only 888 88-gram silver Moon Festival Pandas struck for worldwide release. Most of the mintages represent an auspicious number according to Chinese folklore, as the number “8” is considered the luckiest number and is associated with good fortune. These 2023 Moon Festival Panda mintages are just a fraction of the mintages of other China Mint annual Panda Proof and uncirculated releases. With so few proofs available, however, only a lucky few will ever get the chance to own one of these pieces.
