1988 marked the seventh year of the Chinese Gold Panda bullion program, and like the previous issues, it featured a fresh design and limited mintage. Since then, the People’s Republic of China has issued a new Chinese Gold Panda every year, and with the exception of 2002, they have all featured their own unique reverse designs. Right now, 1988 1 oz Gold Chinese Panda Coins are available to purchase online at Silver.com.

All 1988 Gold Chinese Panda Coins in this online listing will arrive to you inside individual protective flips. Struck in China and issued by the People’s Republic of China, these coins represent the seventh overall design in the Gold Panda bullion program. Each of these coins consists of genuine .999 fine gold and is also legal tender under the monetary authority of China.

The Hall of Prayer of Abundant Harvests appears on the obverse of 1988 1 oz Chinese Panda Coins. This design will be instantly familiar to Chinese Panda collectors, as it has appeared on the front of every release since the program began in 1982. Across the upper edge of the coin there is a series of Chinese inscriptions, while on the lower portion we see the year of release.

A fully grown panda sits on the reverse of 1988 1 oz Gold Panda Coins. The panda is positioned at an angle towards the right and holds bamboo branch in its left paw. This design is unique to the 1988 release, as every issue in the program has contained its own design, with the exception of 2002. There are inscriptions on the reverse as well that read 1 oz Au .999, 100 Yuan.

The giant panda is known for its cuddly appearance and beautiful black and white markings. Because the markings are fairly uniform across all pandas, it can be very difficult to tell multiple members of the species apart. It also has a unique bamboo diet, which comprises the majority of its overall food intake. However, the panda is classified as a carnivore and will occasionally feed on fish and smaller animals.

If you have any questions when buying gold, please feel free to ask. Silver.com customer service is available to assist you with inquiries on the phone at 888-989-7223, online using our live chat service, and via our email address.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
