Are The Modern Commemorative Coin Headquarters
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.
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
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.
Britannias and Sovereigns Coins
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).
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,
(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.
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!
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
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).
