Chinese Gold Panda (China)

Chinese Gold Panda (China)

The panda, minted since 1982 by the People's Republic of China, is a Bullion coin with a purity of 99.9%.

The front face of the coin features Beijing’s Temple of Heaven, with the Chinese words: 中华人民共和国 (pinyin : Zhong Hua Ren Min Gong he guó, People's Republic of China). The date of issue is shown on the bottom of this face. The obverse depicts pandas, with varying images year on year, with the exception of the years 2001 and 2002, which both featured the same image.

The current, official issuing authority is the China Gold Coin Incorporation. In 1982, pandas were only available in gold, embossed without value indication, in denominations of 1 / 10 oz to 1 oz. From 1983, the gold Pandas were given a nominal value specified on the reverse within the panda design. The denomination has been extended from 1 / 20 oz to 1 oz

A special feature is the face value of these coins. The 1982 edition had no face value. From 1983 to 2000 pieces were created with 1 ounce values of 100 yuan. Since 2001 this nominal value has increased to 500 yuan. The coin from 1983 which weighed 1 / 20 oz was the world\'s first in this size. From 1991, a 1 gram gold coin production was added, with 10,000 units in current circulation. Sizes over 1 ounce are sometimes also created, however, they are more of a rarity.
