2016 Panda Coins; Update and Discussion
« on: August 13, 2015, 04:17:04 PM »
The 2016 Panda Coins are supposed to be a lot more different from what we have had so far.
1. Does anyone have credible information on specific characteristics of the coins?
2. Does anyone have any guesses?
3. Should the collection/investment approach change in any way?

So far it seems that the 1oz silver Panda coin is most likely to be 30g. Are we going to have more information back on the coin such as the metal (Ag) and Purity (0.999)?

Some internet sellers are already taking names/email for notification of coin release.

Thanks for information.

Attn: Mr. Anthony; I don't want to put you in a spot but you are probably the best source here?! Thanks.

The 2016 mintage is one of the factors that will determine how well, the 30g (formerly 1oz) silver panda coin, for example does. Although badged as bullion it has invariably acquired numismatic status especially with the passage of time. However, the trend towards higher mintages is pulling the coin back towards its bullion designation although the premium over spot is still significant enough to make it an "expensive bullion coin". So are we going to have another 8,000,000 30g silver panda coins in 2016? More or less? Will the coin exchanges target the coin for acquisition thereby driving it again towards a quasi-numismatic coin?

I published  what I have been told about the weights of the new Pandas in the July issue of China Pricepedia. This is NOT confirmed, but it comes from a reliable source. The weights for the new gold Panda coins will be: 30 gm, 15 gm, 8 gm, 3 gm and 1 gm. The system of halving each metric weight runs into a little problem at 4. That is why the 50 Yuan gold may weigh 3 grams and the 20 only one gram. In the past one gram was not a particularly popular size so it will be interesting to see if that is really the new weight for the 20 Yuan.

The weight of the formerly 1 oz. silver Panda is said to be 30 gm.

Thanks for the confirmation. I guess we all have to wait until later this year for more categorical information from the pre-launch press releases from China. I'll probably continue building on my original sets whilst starting new sets specifically for the kids from 2016 onwards. Long live the Panda!

Very interesting. The new Panda Design would be released October?

With 1 gm Panda, i think the 1991 1gm would be more interested too.

And the coins start appearing in the West usually early in the year (2016). It will be interesting to see what the Panda depiction will look like this time. The 2014 and 2015 designs were pretty bland!

30/15/8/3/1. Crazy!! To me the problems started at lucky 8. I'm also wondering about a 5oz coin. Will it be 5*30 = 150 gram?

I wonder how cost efficient is the minting of the 1g and possibly the 3g coin?

The 2016 Panda coins were scheduled for release today in China. Does anyone know what the release prices of the coins are? Thanks.

I don't get it... he says "There will be no markings for weight and purity. Although not marked on the coins the purity will remain the same as previous years at .999 fine." but shows a picture with a weight and purity.

Most likely a typo.
