2011 Silver Panda Varieties Found

Silver Panda varieties have a long history that starts in 1990, with Large and Small Date versions, and continues through 2010 with its date varieties. Partly because several of the varieties from the 90’s have been found to be scarce or rare – and now sell for significant premiums above their more common peers – many numismatists take interest in Panda varieties. has identified a pair of distinct 2011 Panda varieties.

The photos show the differences in eye and ear shapes on the Panda cub and the differences in nose details on the adult. These differences are easily visible to the eye and are significant enough that I expect the varieties to be officially recognized. So far they are being called Large Eye and Small Eye. Examples have been submitted to NGC for grading and variety designation.

Pandaology 101

Temple of Heaven in BeijingI had a fabulous time yesterday (March 3, 2011) - I taught a college anthropology class about Chinese coins (mainly Pandas and Lunars) and how they are intertwined with China's history, culture and economy. The regular professor said it was the best guest lecture of the year. The students were really attentive and responded to stories like the one about how the Temple of Heaven is connected to the Winter Solstice. They asked me questions like how long have mints made collector coins and are there any coins to commemorate the return of Hong Kong to China, plus dozens more. Afterward the professor told me that one student who hadn't spoken aloud in class the entire semester had asked 4 questions. The future of coin collecting is bright — especially when it includes Pandas!
