There are a few items that are instantly associated with the history and heritage of the people of China. Among those many iconic images, none is more well-known than the panda bear. The Bank of China has seized upon the popularity of the panda and produced an increasingly popular line of commemorative and legal tender coins featuring the panda. The 2014 1/2 oz. Gold Chinese Panda coin has been in production since 1983. The image on the obverse side changes on a yearly basis, but several features remain the same over the years such as the purity, size and face value.
The very first Gold Chinese Panda coin was produced by the Bank of China in 1983. The panda design featured on the 2014 1/2 oz. Gold Chinese Panda features a lone panda resting on a branch, with a forest of bamboo behind it. In previous years, the Gold Chinese Panda coins had featured multiple pandas in the primary image used on the commemorative coin. All Gold Chinese Panda coins are used as legal tender within China, and are available in brilliant uncirculated condition for investors around the globe.
On the obverse side, the aforementioned image of the panda is included in the center of the coin. Stamped below the panda’s image is the weight and metal purity in the coin. Additionally, there is a stamp indicating the legal tender value of the coin. The image on the reverse side of the coin features the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvest, which is located in Beijing. Above the image are the Chinese characters indicating “People’s Republic of China,” with the year of minting stamped below the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvest.
