Why Buy This MS69 First Strike 2023 China 30 g Silver Panda with a Red Core and a Panda Label?
The Chinese Silver Panda has been a favorite of collectors for years. Panda coins were first struck in 1983. While 2022 was the 40th anniversary of the Gold Panda, 2023 is the 40th anniversary of the Silver Panda. One of the most appealing things about this series is that it features a new design each year. Many other annual bullion coins rarely, if ever, change the design. China issued this Silver Panda for 2023.

- This China Panda is made of .999 fine silver and weighs 30 grams.
- This coin is issued by the China Mint and is 10 Yuan legal tender in the People’s Republic of China.

Exquisite New Panda Design
Obverse: This side of the coin features a depiction of one of Beijing’s most iconic structures, the Temple of Heaven. The inscriptions on this side of the coin state the country of issue and the date.
