These are the S5Y Panda Coins that NGC acknowledges a variety:

https://www.ngccoin.com/variety-plus/china/china-panda-series/s5y/


Asked NGC to recognize the 1996 S5Y Rounded and Pointed shoulder variety and they rejected the request -


"Thanks for the photos. I showed one of the senior graders and he said it was too minor as the frosting was all done by hand back then. If we did this one, we’d be doing a million tiny variations"

Asked NGC to recognize the 1998  S5Y Thin and Thick branch variety and they rejected the request -

"I checked with him on this one as well and he said no. We simply cannot do every small variety or there would be hundreds (or more) of them for the series."

Interesting post as i have wondered about the varieties for the 1995.

So NGC says 2 varieties for the Small Date and Large Date?......
