New York Mint Offers Gold and Silver Panda Proof Coins to U.S. Collectors(June 12, 2013)
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) June 12, 2013
New York Mint®, a leading source and direct marketer of high-value collectible coins, has secured a selection of low mintage, legal tender China Panda Proof coins including the 2013 Gold Kilo Panda Proof (99.9% fine gold), 2013 Gold Panda 5-ounce Proof (99.9% fine gold), 2013 Silver Kilo Panda Proof (99.9% fine silver) and the 2013 China Silver 5-ounce Panda Proof (99.9% fine silver) directly from the China Mint. In 1982 the China Mint struck the very first Panda coins marking the beginning of one of the most popular and sought after coin issues in the world. This landmark Panda coin series is the most popular ongoing series in modern coin history. The popularity of these coins is due largely in part to the annual design change of the Panda Proof coins further captivating collectors and increasing demand. The annual design change has been the trend since China Mint first introduced the Panda series and this tradition continues with the 2013 Panda Proofs. The 2013 one-year-only design features a group of three pandas drinking and a bamboo background on the reverse, and the obverse of the coin features the Prayer Hall in the Temple of Heaven. These proof coins have been struck with highly polished dies in an exacting minting process which demands scrupulous attention to detail and the highest levels of craftsmanship.
New York Mint has secured a limited quantity of these extremely low mintage coins providing U.S. collectors with an opportunity to own this brilliant design available in both gold and silver in a Kilo or 5-ounce issues. Collectors worldwide are amazed at the incredible size of the kilo coin and the dramatic detail expressed on these issues. The 2013 Gold Kilo Panda Proof is the largest coin in the Panda series and is struck in 32-ounces of gold - past issues have been complete sell-outs at the Mint. The spectacular 2013 Silver Kilo Panda Proof also popular among collectors, is struck in 2.2 pounds of fine silver. In recent years the China Mint has been racing to keep up demand for the Panda Proof coins which have been a challenge for the Mint. New York Mint is pleased to have secured a portion of these Panda Proofs from China Mint to provide our customers an opportunity to add these spectacular coins to their collections, said New York Mint President Bill Gale. The 2013 Panda Proof coins have been certified & graded by Numismatic Guarantee Corporation (NGC) in Proof 70 (PF70), Proof 69 (PF69) and Gem Proof. These coins are featured in the original mint presentation case along with a numbered mint certificate of authenticity.
