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.
