Gold Chinese Panda coins have undergone some changes during the nearly 40-year history of the series. The initial release in 1982 featured 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz coins. The 1/20 oz coin, now the smallest, wasn’t released until 1983. From their release until 2000, the coins had face values of 100, 50, 25, 10, and 5 Yuan. Those face values were adjusted in 2001 to their current 500, 200, 100, 50, and 10 Yuan, respectively.
The greater change to the Gold Chinese Panda Coins came in 2016. Until 2015, The Gold Chinese Pandas were issued with Troy ounce weights just as all other major bullion coins are issued. As of 2016, the Chinese Mint issues the coins with Grams for the weight, and that changed resulted in slight adjustments to the actual weight in Troy ounces and diameter of the coins.
