The Gold Chinese Panda coin is the third longest running coin program among modern bullion coinage. Only the South African Krugerrand, introduced in 1967, and the Gold Canadian Maple Leaf, introduced in 1979, are older than the Gold Panda. When it was introduced, the Gold Panda consisted of 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz coins. The 1/20 oz coin, the smallest, was released in 1983.
Today, Chinese Panda gold coins for sale are still available in those five weights, but the weights are now measured in Grams rather than the globally popular Troy ounces. The new weights include 30 Grams, 15 Grams, 8 Grams, and 1 Grams, with this 3 Gram coin replacing the former 1/10 oz Gold Panda coin.
On the obverse of all 2018 3 Gram Gold Chinese Panda Coin is the image of a Giant Panda. In this year’s design, the artistry focuses close in on the face of the panda bear as it looks intently at a bamboo shoot. Engravings on this face feature the face value of the coin, weight, metal content, and purity.
The reverse of all Gold Chinese Panda Coins includes the outer facade of the largest building in the Temple of Heaven complex. Engravings on this face of the coin are in Mandarin Chinese above the design, and read “People’s Republic of China.” Below the design field you’ll find the year of issue engraved on the coin.
With locations in Shanghai, Shenyang, Shenzhen, and Beijing, the Chinese Mint produces all Gold Panda and Silver Panda coins each year as the sovereign mint of the People’s Republic of China.
