Each 2018 30 Gram Gold Chinese Panda Coin in this listing is in BU condition. Coins in BU condition exhibit no signs of wear and tear, but there is the potential for minor flaws from production. These flaws are limited to minor issues such as breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, and contact marks.
Gold Panda coins were first offered in 1982 with a variety of weights and face values available. Today, the Gold Panda collection includes a total of five regularly issued weights, and a number of frequently issued additional weights. The core options each year for Gold Chinese Panda coin buyers include these 30 Gram coins, as well as 15 Gram, 8 Gram, 3 Gram, and 1 Gram coins.
What sets the Gold Panda Coin apart from other major gold bullion coins, such as the Gold Eagle and Gold Maple Leaf, is the use of a new obverse design each year. This year’s design is new once again and focuses on the face of the Giant Panda species.
On the obverse of the 2018 30 Gram Gold Chinese Panda Coin you’ll see a large panda’s face dominating the design field. The gentle giant is featured staring directly at a bamboo shoot, its eyes clearly visible for one of the first times in series history. Engravings on this face of the coin include the face value, weight, metal content, and purity.
The reverse of all Gold Chinese Panda Coins features the image of the largest building from the Temple of Heaven complex. Constructed between 1406 and 1420, the Temple of Heaven complex was a religious gathering site for Taoists, but was also visited by ruling emperors to offer prayers for good harvests.
The Chinese Mint is the official sovereign mint of the People’s Republic of China, and its printing and coining operations are overseen by the People’s Bank of China. All Gold Panda coins are struck by the mint, but do not feature mint marks identifying which facility strikes them.
