China Gold Panda Coins
Chinese "Panda" gold coins have been issued by the Chinese Mint since 1982. The design of the coins changes from year to year with minimal differences in size.
The design of the gold panda coin is truly unique. On the front you can see the representation of the Temple of Paradise with the inscription "Zhonghua Renmin Gongheguo" or People's Republic of China and the year of issuance. On the back is the illustration of the Chinese giant panda which varies from year to year.
These gold coins are made of 99.90% pure gold and weigh 30 grams (0.96 ounces).
The Gold Chinese Panda coins are issued by the People's Republic of China (PRC) since 1982, and in 2016 the PRC started minting Gold Pandas in metric system sizes as well. This meant that the Gold Panda coins were more widely accepted, and better suited for the international coin market.
The design of the Gold Panda coin is very unique. On the obverse side of the coin, we can see the image of the Temple of Heaven in Beijing. This design changes every year, which is what makes these coins so unique.
These coins are considered a wonderful collector's item. The reverse side of the coin features the international symbol of China - the Great Panda. The Panda adds an endearing and familiar touch to the Gold Coin, and it represents China's culture and heritage very well.
