Giant Panda is easily recognized by the large, distinctive black patches around its eyes, over the ears, and across its round body. As a result of farming, deforestation and other development, the giant panda has been driven out of the lowland areas where it once lived. At the end of 2013, there were fewer than 2,000 pandas living in the wild, mainly in the mountains of Sichuan, Shaanxi, and Gansu provinces. Giant Panda image was used by China in international contexts, for example since 1982 issuing gold panda bullion coins or as one of the five Fuwa mascots of the Beijing Olympics.
