Commemorative Show Pandas
Commemorative coinage is coins that honor historical events, people and landmarks. They are also created to celebrate anniversaries from coin programs to historical moments from the past. Commemorative coins range from business strike, proof coins, precious metal, clad coins, legal tender and medallion form. Both government regulated and private mints produce these collector desired pieces. The most demanded commemoratives for coin shows since the mid 1980’s Internationally are the elusive Show Panda from China. This program has represented every major coin show throughout the world including investor conferences back in the late 80’s.
