The Chinese Mint issued the Gold Panda coins starting in 1982 with a 1 oz, ½ oz, and 1/10 oz option in addition to these ¼ oz Gold Panda coins. From 1982 until 2015, the Chinese Mint denoted the weight of its coins in Troy ounces. In 2016 though, the mint changed its markings of weight to Grams to align with the nation’s use of the metric system. Silver.com will randomly select your ¼ oz Gold Chinese Panda coin at the time your order is processed for shipping and cannot guarantee or reserve specific issue years.
On the obverse of all Gold Chinese Panda coins, you’ll find the design of a building known as the Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests. Located inside of the greater Temple of Heaven complex, the hall itself was visited annually by emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties to pray for a successful harvest season.
The reverse of the ¼ oz Gold Chinese Panda coin features a new design of the Giant Panda species each year. The panda is a well-known symbol of China and the bears are native to the nation’s mountainous central regions.
