Each of the 2017 50 Gram Proof Gold Chinese Pandas in this listing comes with a certification from the PCGS. The PR69 grade is for near-perfect specimens that exhibit full, original mint luster with a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. Examples of these flaws include only minuscule contact marks or hairlines that must be located outside of the primary focal points.
In addition, these coins have DCAM and First Strike labels. DCAM stands for deep-cameo and refers to the strong, frosted visuals and deeply-mirrored, clear background fields. The First Strike label indicates each coin was received for grading within 30 days of its original release.
The obverse of the 2017 50 Gram Proof Gold Panda features the Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests. This design element features on the obverse of all Gold Pandas and the reverse of all Silver Pandas. This building is the primary structure within the Temple of Heaven complex located within south-central Beijing.
On the reverse side of 2017 50 Gram Proof Gold Chinese Pandas is a depiction of a Giant Panda. The panda species is native to the mountainous regions of central China and is distinctive for its black-and-white patches of fur. In this design, the panda is seated on its backside while it uses its paws to break down a bamboo shoot.
The Chinese Mint introduced the Gold Pandas in 1981. The series initially offered 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz gold coins. In 1982, a 1/20 oz gold coin was added. In 2016, these weights all changed to 30 Grams, 15 Grams, 8 Grams, 3 Grams, and 1 Gram, respectively.
