We Are The Modern Commemorative Coin Headquarters

Lunar-Zodiac Coins

Beginning in 1981, the 12 Lunar-Zodiac animals have been portrayed on silver and gold coins from China and other countries. Some collectors like to build complete sets from one country, while others acquire just coins with their own sign (ie Horse, Dragon, Dog, etc.) PandaAmerica is an official distributor of Lunar-Zodiac coins from Australia, Canada, China, Laos, Liberia, Nepal, Thailand, Vietnam, etc.

Pandas Coins

Brilliant Uncirculated precious metal Panda coins are issued annually by China in standard sizes of 1, ½, ¼, 1/10 and 1/20 oz. pure (999 fine) gold, and 1 oz. pure (999 fine) silver. Because of the limited mintages and adorable panda designs, these have become among the most popular bullion coins in the world. Many collectors acquire complete collections featuring one example of each panda design - for instance a complete silver Panda collection (1989 to date) averages only about $45 each.


Libertads and Other Mexican Coins

Casa Moneda de Mexico was the first mint in the Americas; it was established in 1536 and still produces all of Mexico's coins. The Libertad (Angel) design is featured on the only series of standard size (1/20, 1/10, ¼, ½, 1, 2 and 5 oz) pure silver coins produced anywhere. PandaAmerica has all sizes available in BU and Proof, as well as annual sets. We also offer Mexico's popular Pre-Columbian gold and silver coin series.

British Britannias and Sovereigns Coins

Tradition is important in Great Britain. The new Britannia gold coins feature a variation on the Una & the Lion design first used in 1836, and the gold Sovereigns and Half Sovereigns are still minted every year to the identical standards established in 1817, under King George III (7.99 gm. and 3.99 gm., respectively, of 917 fine gold).

Innovative Coins

For over 2,000 years, all coins have looked pretty much the same. But in recent years, mints have combined their imagination with technological advances to produce coins that really excite collectors - coins in color, with holograms, coins that fit together like a puzzle, coins shaped like a fan or flower, etc.

Shown (top to bottom) are coins commemorating Crown Jewels from Cook Islands (with real jewels), Year of the Horse from Canada (with hologram), Australia Centenary (Holey Dollar & Dump), Year of the Horse (fan shape) from China, bimetallic Blessings from Hong Kong, and Chinese Peking Opera colored ingot.


Exciting New Coin Issues from Cambodia, China, Laos, Nepal, Thailand, Vietnam, etc.

Coins first appeared in Asia (China) sometime around 600 BC. Today, artistic silver and gold coins - many with historic themes - are issued by governments throughout Asia and are avidly collected both in their native countries and abroad. For instance, in 1979 China issued just three modern gold and silver commemorative series - but by 1994 China had 15 gold & silver commemorative coin programs with a total of 104 items. So there are a lot of subjects to choose from!

It was not even legal to import coins into the U.S. from Vietnam until President Clinton lifted trade restrictions in April, 1996. Today, the colorful Lunar-Zodiac designs - some with holograms - of the Vietnamese coins, has made them very popular. Lunar Zodiac animals also appear on other Asian coins … plus there are fish from Laos (one even appears to leap into the air!), ancient architecture and statues on coins of Cambodia, Buddhas from Nepal, and Dragons from Thailand. And we have Dragon coins from Myanmar (that used to be Burma).


We Mint Coins & Medals for Governments, Associations and Individuals.
