Valentine Bamboo Panda Medals on Offer to Pricepedia Subscribers.

With the latest edition of the Pricepedia came the announcement of the availability of a new panda medal. It currently seems to be on offer to only Pricepedia subscribers. It is not clear if this will change in future.

The Valentine Bamboo Panda medal appears to be the first heart shaped panda coin/medal and was produced by the Shenyang Mint.

My assumption at the moment is that our forum member, Mr. Peter Anthony, is somehow involved with this project but I do not have any specifics. I wish him the best of luck for success in this venture.  N31

Specifications (AFAIK)

Mintage Year: 2016.
Mint: Shenyang Mint, China.
Material: Silver.
Strike: Proof.
Fineness: 99.9% purity.
Weight: 1oz.
Height: ?
Width: ?
Mintage: 980.
Designation: Medal.
Designer/Engraver: ?

Disclosure: I ordered two medals.

Strange timing for this release.  The medal would have done great if released in January 2016 ahead of valentine day.  Now it would be strange to give a 2016 medal as a gift for 2017 valentine day.

It would be interesting to learn about who commissioned this product and thinking behind the timing of the release.

KeepOnTrying! Dimensions: 40mm x 40 mm.

To Key Date Panda: this project was not originally conceived as a Valentine's Day gift. However, everyone who saw it called it the Valentine Panda and the name has stuck. So far, being out of season does not seem to diminish its appeal.

The Valentine Bamboo Panda will be offered here to Forum readers starting this weekend (assuming any supply remains - the total mintage is not available).

Just to be clear, the Valentine Bamboo Panda is being sold only to China Pricepedia subscribers. Anyone who subscribes can buy up to two immediately (while supply lasts).

"Mintage: 980" vs. "the total mintage is not available"?

Interesting design and nice that it's somewhat of an exclusive, will there be an option for overseas shipping?

There is a discussion about something in China, too. Sorry to be so vague.

It is indeed the first official heart-shaped medal from China.

The first heart-shaped Valentine medal was made by Shenyang Mint in 2001.

I am confused, is the mintage of this coin 980 or some number that is higher than 980.

The total mintage of the Valentine Bamboo Panda is 980.
