Latest 2016 Panda Release Features Baby Bei Bei

Officially licensed by the Smithsonian!

In 2014, MCM partnered with the Smithsonian Institute and the China Mint to create the first release in the Smithsonian Panda series, which featured Mei Xiang and Tian Tian. The next release featured Bao Bao, daughter to Mei Xiang and Tian Tian. Now, the 2016 releases will feature Mei Xiang and Tian Tian’s son, Bei Bei!

On August 22, 2015, the Smithsonian National Zoo announced that Mei Xiang and Tian Tian had their second baby in only two years! This baby was named “Bei Bei,” which means “precious treasure.” Bei Bei and his family have become symbols of international relations between China and the United States, as we work together to save this endangered species.

For the first time, new 2016-dated 1 oz. silver, 2 oz. silver, 5 oz. silver, and 1/10 oz. gold Pandas commemorate little Bei Bei. The obverse of each coin features Bei Bei, as he glances at his reflection in a pond. The reverse of each silver coin depicts the Great Wall of China, along with the Smithsonian Castle on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. The reverse of each gold coin features the Smithsonian Castle.

With the popularity of the China Panda gold and silver coin series quickly rising among numismatists and stackers, these Bei Bei coins are expected to sell out quickly. Place your order today to avoid missing out on this exciting addition to China’s Panda family!
