Silver Panda coins from the Chinese Mint have a complex history. The coins actually debuted in 1983, but were originally only offered as proof specimens. The introduction of bullion coins in the Silver Panda series did not occur until 1989.
On the obverse of the 2015 Chinese Silver Panda is the image of the giant panda species of bears. In this design, used only in 2015, there is an adult panda featured sitting in front of a bamboo wall while it eats some bamboo. The giant panda gets 99% of its dietary sustenance from bamboo and other greens in the central highlands of China.
The reverse of Chinese Silver Panda coins features the Temple of Heaven. The Temple of Heaven is actually the name of the larger Taoist religious complex within which youll find the building featured on this coin. This building is the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests. The Temple of Heaven complex is found in south-central Beijing and remains sacred to this day.
