The Gold Pandas have been available from the Chinese Mint since 1982, making the series one of the longest-running in the world. Only the Gold Krugerrand, introduced in 1967, and the Gold Maple Leaf, introduced in 1979, have been issued for a longer period of time with the same level of stability from year to year.
The Chinese Mint has made two major changes to the Gold Panda Series since 1983 when the 1/20 oz gold coin joined the original 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz coins. In 2001, the Chinese Mint shifted the face value of each coin up to the level it currently holds today. In 2016, the aforementioned change to Grams occurred. For the 15 Gram coin, the replacement of the 1/2 oz gold coin consisted of no change other than the weight. While the other four coins saw a change in the diameter and/or thickness, the 15 Gram gold coin remained the same size as its 1/2 oz predecessor.
Obverse visuals on the 2021 15 Gram Gold Chinese Pandas include an exterior look at the Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests. Its main staircase leading to the front door is featured here and has been a stable fixture of the series since 1982.
Reverse designs on the 2021 Gold Chinese Pandas feature the latest effigy of the Giant Panda in the series. This year’s design features a young panda cub showcasing its independent spirit as it climbs the trunk of a tree. The adult panda is nearby and keeping a watchful eye on its curious young cub.
