2022 China Panda World's Fair of Money 50g Silver Proof
In a world paused by pandemic, the thought of attending a Coin Fair was a distant dream for almost three years. Finally, in 2022 these events have started occurring both here in Australia and overseas. One of the biggest to occur is held by the American Numismatic Association - the World's Fair of Money. In August 2022, the Fair was held in Chicago - and this very special silver collectable was minted exclusively for the attendees to order.
A medal, minted from 50g of 99.9% pure silver, this beauty honours both the ongoing China Panda series, as well as the host city for the ANA Fair, Chicago. Each medal features, on one side, a playful Panda clumsily climbing a tree branch with the gold-plated logo of the ANA inset. On the other, a panoramic scene of Chicago as viewed from Lake Michigan.
Just 888 minted, and just 5 made it out to Australia.
