Panda similar Coin
« on: June 01, 2016, 03:34:57 PM »
Hello, I  can't find anywhere what this coin is. Maybe you can help me.
Diameter: 26mm
Thickness 2mm
Weight: 8,2 grams
So when I'm calculating right, it is to light for silver, but it slows down on my  Neodym Slide.
I checked the symbol after 10, when I'm right it means "nián" ( year, annual).
I gonna try to translate the other symbols too and when I'm ready , post it.

They are medals (not coins) commemorating the "Cradle of Chinese Civilization" and "Ten Years of Reunification" of Hong Kong returning to the motherland.
