In 1982, the Chinese Mint issued the Gold Pandas for the first time with a 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz coin available. In 1983, the Chinese Mint issued a fifth option for buyers in the form of a 1/20 oz gold coin. These coins remained the staples of the program through 2015. While all five coins are still available, each one is now issued with Grams for the unit of measure instead. The coins were replaced by 30 Gram, 15 Gram, 8 Gram, 3 Gram, and 1 Gram coins, respectively.
All of the 30 Gram Gold Chinese Pandas in this product listing feature a Mint State 69 certification. MS69 coins have full, original mint luster with no more than two minor detracting flaws present. Examples of acceptable flaws on these coins include only minuscule contact marks or hairlines that must be located outside of the primary focal points of the coin.
Gold Chinese Pandas in this Silver.com listing may feature additional labels in the slab such as First Day of Issue. This particular label points to the fact that the coins arrived for grading within the first 24 hours of release by the Chinese Mint.
Silver.com cannot guarantee whether the coin you receive was graded by the PCGS or NGC and whether or not it will feature additional labels. We do guarantee each coin has an MS69 grade. All coins are chosen at random once your payment has been processed. The date mark, design, and additional labels are all variable. If you buy more than one, please note you may receive coins with the same date mark, design, and additional labels.
The Temple of Heaven’s Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests is found on the obverse of the Gold Chinese Panda each year. Giant Pandas are depicted in new designs on the reverse of the coins with each new date mark.
