Gold Chinese Panda Coins are significant in the bullion marketplace. The South African Gold Krugerrand was the first issue of a modern gold bullion coin for investors and was followed in 1979 by the Gold Canadian Maple Leaf coin. The 1982 debut of the Gold Chinese Panda coin marked the third issue of a modern gold bullion coin.
On the obverse of 2019 8 Gram Gold Chinese Panda Coins is the typical design offered every year by the Chinese Mint. The coins in this series include the image of the Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests on the obverse every year, along with engravings of the year of issue and the nation of issue.
The reverse of 2019 Gold Chinese Panda Coins features a new design for the Giant Panda. This distinct bear species is so widely recognized by those around the world as a symbol associated with China that it is an unofficial symbol for the country. Pandas are easily recognized for their white-and-black fur patches.
Chinese Mint facilities in Shenyang, Shenzhen, Shanghai, and Beijing strike the Gold Panda coins, but mint marks are never used and the Chinese Mint does not otherwise identify which locations strike the coins.
