My first post, a bit about myself on coins and brief talk about an early silver pandasteemCreated with Sketch.

in steemitsilvergold •  21 days ago  (edited)

Well first of all, I am quite new on steemit and would like to learn more about steemit while making friends in this community. I might need some beginners guides to read about how to use steemit to be able to use this platform better. For people who like to skip to my first coin showoff, you can skip the next two paragraphs.

I am silver-horde on steemit (or The_One on Numista), I first know about steemit via a discord group called #steemitsilvergold (https://discord.gg/jtFsVk3). I've been there for quite some time and the group is excellent, you should join it if you like to chat with people in steemit community.

Other than steemit, I also use platforms like Numista, colnect, and ucoin to manage my coin collection as well as learning numismatics. In fact, I am quite active on Numista I am currently a Numista referee as well as an admin for Numista discord (https://discord.gg/Sx4TmcE). Part of the reason why I started to use steemit after sometime in the #steemitsilvergold discord group is because I am hoping to meet enthusiastic collectors helping out coin catalogs on Numista, as well as promoting both the #steemitsilvergold and Numista server.

Now, about the coin... 🥁

The two pictures above are the obverse and reverse of the 1989 China 10 yuan silver panda. It is the first silver panda that is in brilliant uncirculated (although can look like proof in some pieces with ultra cameo) condition, and the first made in 999 fine silver 1 troy ounce when all silver pandas in previous years were either made in different purities of silver or in odd weights (which I might write more about it in my future posts). In fact, this was the first silver panda intended to be sold as silver bullion instead of a numismatic product by the Chinese government, although was quickly treated as a numismatic product again by the secondary market.

The 1989 silver panda was made in larger quantities than other early pandas in the 80s and 90s. It has a relatively large mintage of 255,000 - a mintage that is still quite small comepare with mintage of many silver pandas in recent year, which are made in millions. I was fortunate enough to buy this coin slightly above premium a few years ago, which lead my interest on Chinese coins ever since.
