A new Lunar Year has begun, and with it a renewed interest in ALL of the animals in the Lunar calendar - it is an undeniable beauty to collect and commemorate the Lunar calendar by purchasing gold & silver coins featuring your favorite animal. And while everyone knows about the 12 Lunar animals, you MAY NOT be aware that there is ANOTHER animal that looks fabulous on a coin - the UNICORN!! Undoubtedly a mythical creature that evokes fascination and interest, the Unicorn is a striking animal that looks GREAT on a silver coin!
Panda America has recently unearthed a rare collection of AUTHENTIC, superbly struck Chinese 1-ounce Silver Unicorn coins originally made in 1997! Completely SOLD-OUT from the mint and thought to be difficult to obtain, these proof-like brilliant uncirculated coins had a planned maximum mintage of 50,000 pieces, which is CONSIDERABLY lower than any BU Panda coin. The only Panda coins with a mintage similar to these Unicorn coins are the 1983-1985 1-ounce silver Pandas (with a mintage of 10,000 for each year), and their cost is in the range of $550 to $1,100 EACH! Do not miss the opportunity to own a low mintage silver Unicorn while the price is still very low and affordable.
The Unicorn is on the obverse with a fierce dragon on the reverse. Each coin is LEGAL TENDER, with a face value of 10 Yuan (just like the Panda), and comes in the ORIGINAL double sealed mint package (capsule and soft vinyl cover).
