Pandas tiny and large

Pandas are popular. Odd-shaped coins are popular. Liechtenstein’s Coin Invest Trust has brought both together to produce a couple of cute Brilliant Uncirculated Pacific island coins.

From Palau comes a simple, 11mm tall, gold baby Panda dollar struck in 0.5 gram of .9999 fine gold.

And from the Cook Islands is a massive 65mm, 88-gram .999 fine silver $20 showing a baby panda being cuddled by its mother. The detail has been struck-up in high relief using CIT’s smartminting© technology. Mintage is 888.

The issuing country and denomination are given on the flat “back” of each coin. That from Palau is undated. The Cook Island’s $20 shows 2017.
