Gold Chinese Panda coins debuted from the Chinese Mint in 1982 with 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz coins available. One year later, the Chinese Mint added to a 1/20 oz coin to round out the series. In 2001, the People’s Republic of China revalued all the gold coins for sale in the series and adjusted the face values upward. In 2016, the nation moved the coins away from Troy ounce weights to Grams as the official marking of weight.
All 2018 30 Gram Gold Chinese Panda Coins in this product listing come to you with a Mint State 69 certification from the Professional Coin Grading Service.

These flaws must be located outside the primary focal points of the coin and limited to minuscule contact marks or hairlines.
A First Strike label is included with any coin received within a given time period following release. In this case, the FS label is reserved for any coin received by the PCGS within the first 30 days of its initial release date.
On the obverse side of 2018 30 Gram Gold Chinese Panda Coins is a depiction of the Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests. This building is the central fixture in the Temple of Heaven complex that was constructed in Beijing between 1406 and 1420.
The reverse face of 2018 Gold Chinese Panda Coins comes with the close-up visual of a Giant Panda’s face. Here, the panda stares intently at some bamboo leaves in its paw. The Giant Panda is a species of bear native to the central highlands of China.
