Capture the essence of these adorable pandas who sit together as a symbol of friendship.  Add the element of the $8 denomination and an overlay of 24 karat gold over fine silver to make this a special collectible at a giftable price.

The peaceful panda is a roving animal ambassador whose very nature exudes strength, harmony and most of all, friendship. Playful and sweet natured, the bamboo-loving pandas are seated side by side like two close friends—a beautiful representation of a special bond that is built on honesty, loyalty, trust and generosity. 


The Design:

The reverse design by Simon Ng is inspired by the giant panda’s playful personality, peaceful demeanour and friendly characteristics. Like old friends, the two giant pandas sit beside one another, both facing the viewer while feeding on bamboo leaves and stalks. Above one panda’s head is the Chinese character for “friendship”, which, along with the engraved words “friendship” and “amitie”, transforms the wildlife-themed image into a cross-cultural celebration of friendship.
