The Chinese Mint moved away from the use of Troy ounces as the standard of measurement in its Chinese Panda bullion coins beginning in 2016. The change resulted in the previous 1 oz and fractional-ounce coins transitioning to full Gram weights. The 1 oz coin became the 30 Gram Gold Panda with a minuscule change in the diameter and a slight dip in the actual Gram weight.
All 2017 30 Gram Gold Chinese Panda Coins in this product listing come to you with a Mint State 69 certification from the PCGS. These coins have full, original mint luster with a maximum of two minor detracting flaws present. Acceptable flaws at this certification level include only minuscule contact marks or hairlines found outside the primary fields of the coin’s surface area.
On the reverse of 2017 Gold Chinese Panda Coins is the image of a Giant Panda. This design was used only in 2017 and features a Giant Panda seated in front of a wall of bamboo shoots as it eats some bamboo leaves.
The obverse of 2017 30 Gram Gold Chinese Panda Coins includes the outer façade of a building known as the Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests. It is the central part of the Temple of Heaven complex and was constructed between 1406 and 1420.
The Chinese Mint does not issue its Gold Chinese Panda Coins with mint marks, but participating mints in its system that strike Gold Panda Coins include those located in Beijing, Shanghai, Shenyang, and Shenzhen.
