From the 1982 introduction of the Gold Panda until the 2015 date mark, coins in this series featured the international standard of Troy ounces for the marked weights. In 2016, the Chinese Mint and the People’s Bank of China transitioned the Gold Panda coins to a weight marking of Grams instead.
The ½ oz Gold Chinese Panda coins issued from 1982 until 2000 had a face value of 50 Yuan, while the coins issued from 2001 until 2015 had a higher face value of 200 Yuan. The change was a simple revaluation of the coinage and was not the result of any change in the purity or metal content of the coins. The ½ oz Gold Panda has since been replaced by the 15 Gram Gold Panda.
On the obverse of all ½ oz Gold Chinese Panda coins is the depiction of the Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests. This is the largest structure in the Temple of Heaven complex, which is the oldest of four religious complexes constructed throughout Beijing over 500 years ago.
The reverse of the ½ oz Gold Panda coin features a different depiction of the Giant Panda each year. The changing designs make the Gold Panda bullion coins ideal for both investors and collectors of precious metals.
