China continued their popular silver Panda series with this attractive 2016 issue. Each year features a different design featuring a cute giant Panda. The 2016 issue depicts a Panda grasping a large tree branch. The obverse features the Temple of Heaven in Beijing, a Taoist temple complex constructed in the early 1400’s. In keeping with what seems like a Chinese tradition of cutting corners, the 2016 Panda weighs 30 grams (.9645 oz) rather than 1 troy ounce (31.1035 grams). The reasoning is that this will put the coin on the metric standard. The coin is struck in .999 fine silver, has a nominal value of 10 Yuan. The Brilliant Uncirculated 40mm coin comes in its original protective capsule.
