In 2015, the People’s Republic of China will be releasing the 29th edition of its Chinese Gold Panda series. The series made its debut in 1986 and became China’s official gold bullion coin. Ever since, it has been one of its native country’s most widely recognized coins. Although the 1/20th oz coin is the smallest in the series, it still serves as a suitable investment with a purity of .999 and a denomination of 20 Yaun. These coins are available in their original mint packaging in brand new condition.
- Contains 1/20 oz of .999 pure gold.
- Minted in the People’s Republic of China at the Chinese Mint.
- Carries a 20 Yaun face value.
- Features a changing panda design each year, making each year more valuable and rare.
The all new design for the 2015 gold panda coin displays a scene from one of China’s many bamboo forests. In the design, the image of a panda enjoying a meal of bamboo leaves is displayed. In the background is a forest populated by the very shoots from which this creature obtained its meal. Worth mentioning is that beginning in 2015, neither the coin’s purity or weight will be engraved onto the coin. This ommission is due to the shift in the series’ unit of measurement which is being changed to the metric system this year.
The coin’s reverse side shows the image of one of the most appreciated buildings in Beijing; the Temple of Heaven. Also appearing on the reverse are the coin’s mintage year and the words “Zhonghua Renmin Gongheguo,” which is the Chinese translation for “People’s Republic of China.”
