The Chinese Mint introduced its Gold Pandas in 1982. The series first offered 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz gold coins in 1982, with a 1/20 oz gold coin introduced in 1983. The series saw its first major change in 2001 when the original face values for all five gold coins were adjusted higher. The values of 100, 50, 25, 10, and 5 Yuan were increased to 500, 200, 100, 50, and 20 Yuan.
All of the 2021 1 Gram Gold Chinese Panda Coins available through this Silver.com listing come in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The coins are available in individually-sealed plastic pouches from the mint and come with another new design on the reverse.
In the obverse design of 2021 Gold Chinese Pandas, the mint features the same design element each year. An exterior view of the Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests is found on the obverse side of the coins each year. The building has several swirling, circular tiers to the roof of its main hall with a long staircase leading to the front door.
For the reverse design of the 2021 1 Gram Gold Pandas, the Chinese Mint offers a depiction of the Giant Panda. The new Giant Panda design on this side of the coin depicts a young panda cub climbing the trunk of a tree as its mother looks on lifting up a paw to support her adventurous young cub.
Gold Chinese Pandas have only once featured a repeat design on the reverse side of the coins. The 2002 release featured the same design used in 2001, but the move proved so unpopular with buyers that the Chinese Mint reversed course in 2003 and returned to issuing new design elements each year.
