The Chinese Mint issued the Gold Pandas in 1982 with 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz coins, with a 1/20 oz coin added to the series in 1983. From that point until 2015, the Gold Pandas were produced with Troy ounce weights. In 2016, the series changed over to Grams and that resulted in a change to the actual weight and diameter of the coin.
From 1982 to 2000, the 1 oz Gold Panda coin had a face value of 100 Yuan. From 2001 to 2015, the face value was set at 500 Yuan. When the coins changed over to Grams, the weight dropped from 31.103 Grams to 30 Grams even and the diameter shrunk from 32.05 Grams to 32 Grams. Date marks available in this listing range only from 1982 to 2015.
The obverse side of the 1 oz Gold Chinese Panda comes with the image of the Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests. This design features on this side of the coin with every release and comes with inscriptions of the national name in Mandarin and the date mark.
On the reverse face of 1 oz Gold Pandas, you will find new images of the Giant Panda for each release year. The 2001 and 2002 date marks in this series do share the same design, but the Chinese Mint never repeated this tactic.
These 1 oz Gold Chinese Pandas are available with a Mint State 69 certification. Coins in this condition showcase full, original mint luster with no more than two minor detracting flaws. Examples of acceptable flaws include only minuscule contact marks or hairlines. Please note the date mark and design vary in this listing. If you purchase several coins, you could receive matching dates and designs.
