Modern Chinese Varieties: 1996 Silver 10Y Panda
Posted on 12/12/2017
This month, we will feature another silver Panda variety. The Proof 1996 China Silver 10Y Panda coins can be found with a frosting variety that exhibits either a narrow or wide gap.
The first variety (pictured below) is an example of the narrow gap (Photo 1). A close-up of the area is shown on the photo on the right (Photo 2).
The second variety (pictured below) is an example of the wide gap (Photo 3). A close-up of the area is shown on the photo on the right (Photo 4).
Both of these varieties share the same common obverse featuring the Temple of Heaven and the date 1996 (Photo 5).
Look for another interesting variety to be featured next month.
