With a lot of competition in the gold bullion market, some coin series set themselves apart in some way. The Gold Chinese Panda Series is different because it features a new obverse design every year. In 2016, the Chinese Mint did something else to set the Chinese Panda Series apart from other series on the market. These coins switched from ounce to grams. Since China uses the metric system, it makes since that the coins are made in grams.
On the obverse of the 2017 8 Gram Gold Chinese Panda Coins, you will see a brand new image of the panda. Giant pandas are known for eating bamboo, which is also commonly featured on Gold Chinese Panda Coins, just like on this coin. The panda is eating leaves off of the stick of bamboo.
The reverse of each coin features the image of the Temple of Heaven. This temple is part of a larger religious complex where many people, including emperors, go to worship. This temple was built in the 15th century and is one of the most well-known places in China.
All of the coins in the Chinese Panda Series are minted for the People’s Republic of China by the Chinese Mint. The Chinese Mint has a number of different facilities, but none of them use mint marks, therefore, it is impossible to tell where individual pieces were mint.
