Peter Anthony: The 1995 5 Yuan silver Panda exists in two varieties: Large and Small Date. The Large Date is by far the more common and was minted in Shanghai. No mintage was published for the 1995 5 Yuan Panda. Although it is often considered a common date the 1995 Large Date is nearly as scarce as the 1993. It is often found well-struck with brilliant luster. For those who are only interested in a date set and don’t wish to explore varieties, the 1995 Large Date is a coin to look for. The entire 1993-1998 ½ oz. silver Panda series is found in the NGC Registry.
