2018 Panda Coin Design Change?
« on: August 22, 2017, 01:44:03 AM »
Will the 2018 Panda coins introduce a new design format? The current format started in 2009. I think it would be a good development. We should know in just a couple of months, or so.

Best wishes,

I heard 2018 is the last year of the design concept, and that completes the 10 year period of the design.

What does design concept mean? And why is that significant? Is there something similar in the design from 2008 to the present? Thank you.

We will have to wait and see...

In any case, I think it would be a positive if the layout does change.

Yes, the Panda is posed in front of a horizontal bamboo forest screen. The basic layout is constant.

They have the best anti counterfeiting measures so far although that does not prevent forgers from trying!

I've never seen what the anti-counterfeiting details are?  I have quite a few 2016 and 2017 bullion silver coins.  They look normal to me. :-)

The marked frosty surfaces have multiple layer of shades. You need rotate the coin with a small angle to see the different shades.

Panda looks drunk ?



Panda designs sadly peaked in artistry and creativity long ago.

A stream of random comments.

The 2018 design should make it easy to determine "frosted" vs "mirrored" varieties.

I wonder whether the bamboo forest behind the panda will be more evident when the coins are produced by one mint vs another.

This panda design should be very interesting on the larger silver and gold coins.  There is great opportunity for the hair on the pandas to be very three dimensional. 

Peter, thanks for showing us the picture of the new design.

This one is not so bad. At least we get a close up. First time since 1995?
