Gold Chinese Panda coins, along with their silver counterparts, underwent a transition in 2016. The Chinese Mint no longer uses the global standard of Troy ounces to mark the weight of their coins, turning instead to the use of grams in what the government says is a move to match the nation’s use of the metric system.
On the obverse of the 2017 3 Gram Gold Chinese Panda Coin you’ll notice an all-new image this year. A single, adult panda is featured on this side sitting as it eats. The now-commonplace bamboo wall adorns the background field, with inscriptions of the coin’s face value, weight, metal content, and purity included.
The reverse of the Gold Chinese Panda Coin remains the same. The Temple of Heaven, the primary structure in a larger religious complex in south-central Beijing, is featured on the reverse. Also engraved on this face are the nation of issue, listed in Mandarin Chinese, and the year of issue.
