Gold Chinese Panda coins debuted from the Chinese Mint in 1982, making it the third oldest gold bullion coin program. Only the South African Gold Krugerrand (1967) and the Gold Canadian Maple Leaf (1979) have been available to private buyers for a longer period of time.
Each year the Chinese Mint maintains interest in this official gold bullion coin by altering the design on the obverse. The panda, more so than any other living species, is closely associated with the nation of China. There is a new obverse design in the series every year, with only 2001 and 2002 featuring a repeat design.
On the obverse of the 2017 1 Gram Gold Chinese Panda Coin you’ll find the image of an adult panda as it sits on a fallen branch. The gentle giant is depicted picking at a bamboo shoot as it dines on the vegetation. Engravings include only the face value and the weight, purity, and metal content of the coin.
The reverse of all Gold Chinese Panda coins includes the outer façade design of the Temple of Heaven. Once a gathering place for emperors and religious leaders, the Temple of Heaven now fulfills many societal roles in China and remains a constant feature on the Gold Chinese Panda series.
