List of 2001 Pandas
The People's Bank of China issued the 2001 Chinese panda gold and silver commemorative coins at Jan 20th, 2001. There are altogether 8 different Panda coins in this year, 6 are gold, 2 are silver.
The obverse has the Temple of Heaven in the center with Chinese characters on top saying "Zhonghua Renmin Gongheguo" meaning People's Republic of China and the bottom the year of issue.
The reverse of the coins has the picture of the Bamboo and Panda and the face value, but the domestic version of the gold and silver coins has the additional English character 'D' to signify that it is for local distribution.
This year of Panda coins were minted separately. The domestic version were minted by Shenzhen Guobao Mint; the overseas version were minted by Shanghai Mint. 2001 Chinese Panda Gold and Silver Commemorative coins were distributed exclusively by China Gold Coin Inc.
