Why make this perfectly struck First Releases 2023 30 Gram Silver 40th Anniversary Panda High Relief Proof Medal the next addition to your collection?

The Silver Panda series was launched by the China Mint in 1983, featuring an enchanting panda mother and cub graphic created by renowned Chinese artist Yu Min. The 1983 dated coin was struck from 27 grams of 90% fine silver, with no indication of its composition anywhere on the coin. In honor of the 40th Anniversary of the Silver Panda in 2023, a sensational limited mintage proof silver medal is being issued in a 30 gram weight and 99.9% purity, with a high relief strike and an edge lettered with the medal’s specifications. The medal’s imagery is inspired by the original 1983 design, and re-imagined by one of China’s most prominent contemporary artists. The stunning 2023 transformation of the inaugural Panda design is credited to acclaimed Chinese artist Tong Fang, creator of the 2019, 2021 and 2023 Silver Panda series imagery. Ms. Tong is also anticipated to be the designer of the upcoming 2027 Panda release.

Delightful Modernized Panda Imagery

Obverse: The Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests at the Beijing Temple of Heaven complex is depicted in magnificent detail on the obverse. The date of issue, “2023,” is positioned beneath the grand staircase which leads up to the landmark structure.
