What makes the Gold Chinese Panda coin unique is its use of rotating annual designs in the collection. Yes, other coin programs now offer this same feature, but the Gold Chinese Panda coin was the first to adopt this approach to design. It is also the first major gold bullion coin program to use grams instead of Troy ounces as the official measurement of weight on the coin’s surface. This move was made in 2016.
The reverse of all Gold Chinese Panda coins has featured the Temple of Heaven since the coin’s introduction in 1982. Located in south-central Beijing, the Temple of Heaven is the primary building in a larger religious complex formerly graced by emperors and religious leaders of China.
On the obverse of the 2017 15 Gram Gold Chinese Panda Coin is the all-new design of the Panda for the series. It depicts a single panda sitting atop a fallen tree branch as it holds in its paws some bamboo shoots for a meal.
All 2017 15 Gram Gold Chinese Panda Coins available to you today are Mint State 70 specimens.
