The 2021 release of the coins offers yet another new design of the Giant Panda. The beloved species is beloved as an unofficial national symbol for the People’s Republic of China. The species of bear is endemic to the central highlands of China and is easily noticeable with its black-and-white fur. On the reverse side of Gold Chinese Pandas, there is a new design each year. Only the 2002 release of the coins came with a repeat design, reusing the 2001 design. The Chinese Mint responded to the furor among investors by never repeating designs.
The obverse side of the 2021 3 Gram Gold Panda features a depiction of the Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests. Viewed from the outside, you get a beautiful glimpse of the central building within the greater Temple of Heaven Complex. The complex is a Taoist religious site that is one of four such locations in Beijing. The hall itself was built between 1406 and 1420. Its original intention was as a host site for annual ceremonies during which Emperors from the Ming and Qing dynasties would gather to pray to the heavens for a good harvest.
On the reverse field of the new 2021 Gold Chinese Panda is a depiction of an adult panda and its cub. The Giant Panda species of bears is notable for black-and-white fur and subsists largely on a diet of bamboo, with as much as 95% of its diet consisting of the plant. The design for 2021 shows a young cub climbing a tree as an adult offers support from below.
