Just for fun I decided to test the dimensions and weight and get a feel for what the real ones are supposed to feel like. However when I was weighing them I noticed something really strange. ALL of the Australian silver bullion had at least a half of gram of silver more than the Chinese Panda. Many of the Chinese pandas didn’t even weigh 1 troy ounce! I understand that the weights among these bullion coins varies even between the same coin by the same country but this was every single coin. I tested at least 40 of each and not once did even the heaviest Chinese Panda weigh more than the lightest Australian Kookaburras. If you’re losing 1/2 gram of silver per troy ounce purchased that means you’re losing 3 full troy ounces of silver for every 100oz you buy. I’d like to think the Chinese government doesn’t know this but could this be an intentionally underweight bullion coins that the Chinese are selling at full troy oz prices? They sell them in such large quantities that shaving 1/2 gram off each of them would net the Chinese government millions of troy ounces in profit. I just wanted to put this out there in case there were people out there stacking pandas who didn’t know. They were the lightest of all the bullion coins according to my own tests. I also want to give props to Australia for minting the heaviest of the silver bullion coins I tested. Weighing in at an average of 31.4 grams! The average Panda? A disappointing average of 31.0 grams. My testing was done with coins taken straight out of tubes from the Mint when possible. If not then whatever other government packaging of that country offered. If anyone wants to know the minimum, maximum and average content I found in various national 1oz silver bullion coins I tested the following: - American Silver Eagles - Canadian Maple Leafs - British Britannia’s - Mexican Libertads - Australian Kookaburas - Chinese Pandas - Somali Elephants Just let me know.
