    Interested to know what other panda stackers consider pretty.

    My favorite year would have to be the 2009 one :D

    What about you guys?

    2009, 2010 and 2011 - They seem like a Panda family that should be kept together :)

    I like the 2007 design due to the large area with a mirror finish. Makes it look a bit shinier than the others. I only have 2007 to 2011 though all thanks to Yennus.

    1991's are pretty lush, really like 2008's too, as they're quite different to other designs.

    That 1989 that petercamperdown just posted is also pretty unique!

    Basically, any year group is fine with me ;)

    "You're just too good to be true, can't take my eyes off of you..."

    :D

    Soooooo hard to pick just 1 isn't it? I like the uncluttered designs and ones which say something about the Chinese as people... at least as far as I what I imagine their style, outlook and humour to be. And yes, they have to be pretty of course!

    Gold - 1983

    Has to be my favourite overall. This is the "sovereign" of Pandas, they could've stopped with this mouthwatering design. Truly a beautiful coin, the best fur of any bear and I love the understated frosted bamboo blending with the background. Big and confident golden bear. Incredibly it appears as though there's two different frosting types present, matte background with shinier foreground. Year 2000 design gets an honourable mention too.

    Silver

    It's such a close call between this... (Chinese kitschy design with sufficient elegant simplicity for the perfect blend).

    this, (putting her best foot forward)

    and this. (keeps me looking!)

    However fish has asked for the favourite one so I'm going to say that these are 1st, 2nd and 3rd in that order. Just.

    Yeah yennus, the '92 design, that is one silky proof indeed. I have one in OMP and it positively outshines the rest.

    Especially if you decide to re-mortage the house and get the banknote commemorative!

    :D

    Yeah the '08 is a grower, definitely
