Chinese Gold Coins

The People’s Republic of China has created a series of gold bullion coins known as the Chinese Gold Panda. In 1982, the People’s Republic of China’s Official Mint released panda gold bullion coins. With one exception, the panda design varies every year, and the Gold Panda coins are available in various sizes and values.

The Chinese Gold Panda is one of the most popular gold coins in the world. The Chinese Mint initially issued the Gold Panda coin in 1982, and it is a vast collection that comprises 1 oz/30 Gram pieces and fractional-weight coins. This collection of gold coins for sale is ideal for investors and collectors alike, with a fresh design of the Giant Panda on the reverse each year!

History of  Chinese Gold Coins

In 1982, China produced its first panda gold coins in weights of 1, 1/2, 1/4, and 1/10 oz (31.1, 15.6, 7.8, and 3.1 g) of 0.999 pure gold. In 1983, a new size was introduced: 1/20 oz (1.6 g). Some years later, larger panda coins weighing 5 and 12 oz were also released (160 g and 370 g). Each year, these popular coins are minted in proof-like brilliant uncirculated condition with a new design. With the 2001 releases, a design freeze was announced, and the 2002 pandas were identical to the 2001 pandas. However, collectors favored annual revisions, and China went back to its old approach.

These coins are produced by several mints, including Beijing, Shanghai, Shenyang, and Shenzhen. CHINESE MINTS RARELY USE THEM, which have mintmarks to identify their origin. In some years, slight differences in the coin design—such as the year’s size, the temple’s style, and so on—allow the originating mint to be determined. Different designers are also responsible for various years. The design of the obverse is less likely to change than the design of the panda. Panda-themed Chinese medals should not be mistaken with official Chinese panda coins.

Design of Chinese Gold Coins

The Temple of Heaven is depicted in the center, with Chinese letters on top reading “Zhonghua Renmin Gongheguo” (People’s Republic of China) and the year of issuance on the bottom. If it’s a commemorative issue, the theme will be indicated here as well.

Different panda portraits are created (except for 2001 and 2002, which share the same design). The China Gold Coin Corporation (CGCC) is the official distributor of Gold and Silver Panda coins in China; Panda America has been an authorized distributor in the United States since 1982.

Composition and Specification of Chinese Gold Coins

The Chinese Gold Pandas have been issued by the People’s Republic of China since 1982 and are made of .999 pure gold. To better suit the coins’ international appeal, the People’s Republic of China began minting Gold Pandas in metric system sizes in 2016. These gram sizes replaced the troy ounce sizes of prior dates in the series.

1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/10 oz, and 1/20 ounce gold pandas are the most common sizes. On the other hand, the Gold Chinese Pandas are available in more significant amounts, such as 5 oz, 12 oz, and 1 kilo. Beijing, Shenzhen, Shanghai, and Shenyang are Chinese mints that create the Chinese Gold Panda bullion coins.

Trading in gold and other precious metals is risky because the market is volatile. Past performance is not indicative of future returns. This is why we encourage you to read Our Terms and Conditions carefully before making purchases, selling, or placing orders with BULLIONTRADING LLC. Refer to Safety Tips from the CFTC (Commodity Future Trading Commission). These terms and conditions apply to all orders, all purchases, and all sales made through our website, telephone, or other channels.

In the event you do not fully understand the terms of this agreement, BULLIONTRADING LLC strongly encourages you to consult with your own experts. BULLION TRADING enters into transactions with customers on the reliance and belief that clients are aware of, understand, and agree to these terms.

These terms and conditions are effective as of March 11, 2022, and are binding to all new and existing customers and users.


The prices for gold, silver, platinum and palladium coins and bars keep on fluctuating because of the risk factors that cause price volatility. The risk factors include political development, war, pandemics, demand, and supply. It is important to keep this in mind when transacting with BULLIONTRADING LLC.

The Ordering Process

BULLIONTRADING LLC. Does Not speculate on the prices of precious metals. This means that we don’t make profits by buying gold when the prices are low and selling when prices go up. BULLIONTRADING LLC generates revenue through premium spreads. This is the difference between what Bullion Trading LLC pays & sells these items for.

Orders and inquiries can be made through our website, phone, or other suitable channels. Contact Us for information.


Inquiries are made by customers who are not ready to transact immediately. Customers can contact us or go online at to get current market prices. The price quote and quantity available are subject to change. They can also contact us for guidance on buying and selling bullion coins and bars. You should note that the Price Quotations you receive when inquiring are Estimates because the prices of bullion coins and bars fluctuate daily, and the number of our stock changes all the time.

For example, The U.S Mint sets premium and minimum prices for American Eagles. Prices for American Eagles are determined by the current price of gold, silver, platinum, or palladium. The mint also charges a modest premium to cater to the cost of distribution and marketing. Consequently, the price of bullion coins and bars changes daily as the markets for gold, silver, platinum, and palladium fluctuates. Refer to the United States Mint’s Charges for Authorized Dealers.


Orders are made when customers are ready to transact immediately. The prices you get when ordering bullion coins and bars from us are an accurate reflection of the current market prices. Note that once you place an order, the prices are locked and are no longer subject to market conditions.

An order is placed when you finalized negotiations with our agents and an invoice is generated, not when the payment is made. Ordering and then bailing out or canceling after an invoice is generated makes BULLIONTRADING LLC incur losses. We incur losses because when you place an order, we consider the bullion coin or bar sold and will have hedged ourselves accordingly.

Disclaimer: To protect our company from losses, BULLIONTRADING LLC has implemented a Market Loss Policy.

Market Loss Policy Explained

An order starts when you finalize the deal with our agents, not when the payment is made. We generate an invoice immediately the deal is sealed either through our website or phone. We also count the bullion coin or bar as sold and will have hedged ourselves accordingly.

Customers who place orders, have invoices generated, and then cancel thereafter make us incur losses. To protect ourselves we have implemented a market loss policy. This means that you will incur penalties for ordering, having an invoice generated, and then bailing out. Once an order is placed, prices are locked and not subject to market conditions.

The moment you place an order an invoice is generated. If you cancel, and then gold prices decline you make us incur a loss. It is your responsibility to offset this loss if your order is canceled and your funds are returned. If this happens you will pay for the loss caused by a decline in the price of gold after a sale is made plus a cancellation fee of $35.00. This is our market loss policy.

To remain transparent and protect ourselves from risk we might require credit card information from every customer even if payment will be received through a different channel. We also will ask for immediate confirmation of the amount locked in. This gives us an avenue to compensate ourselves for losses in the event a customer places an order and then fails to pay.

However, if the price of bullion coins and bars stays the same, we usually don’t enforce our market loss policy because we don’t incur losses. If the price goes down we charge a market loss fee which is equal to the amount BULLIONTRADING LLC would have lost because of the unpaid order.
