NGC Grades First 2021 Chinese Pandas

Posted on 11/13/2020

NGC is offering its popular Early Releases and First Releases designations for eligible 2021 Silver and Gold Pandas. Two attractive Panda labels are also available for these coins.

NGC Shanghai Business Information Consulting Co., Ltd. (NGC Shanghai) has graded its first submissions of 2021 Silver and Gold Pandas, which were just released on October 30, 2020. To celebrate the latest issues of China's premier bullion coin, NGC Shanghai is offering special designations and attractive labels to these extraordinary coins.

The design of the 2021 Pandas continues a multi-year story for these coins that began in 2019. While the 2020 Pandas feature a “child” panda eating bamboo on a grassy hill, the little panda on the 2021 Pandas becomes a “teenager” and is learning to climb trees bravely with the encouragement of its mother.

Two attractive NGC Panda labels celebrate the new releases. One shows an image of a cheerful panda at right, with a wider view of a panda among foliage at the bottom. The other shows a panda drawn in a style reminiscent of traditional ink brush artwork. Each label is available by request for an additional fee of ¥10 per coin. The special label fee is waived for all submissions under the NGC Modern Bulk tier.

Coins received by NGC Shanghai within the first 30 days of their release are eligible for NGC's popular EARLY RELEASES and FIRST RELEASES designations. To learn more about NGC Early Releases and First Releases, please click here. To see NGC Early Releases / First Releases cutoff dates, click here.
