Gold Chinese Panda coins from the Chinese Mint originally debuted in 1982 with a 1/10 oz, ¼ oz, and 1 oz option in .999 fine gold. From 1982 until 2015, the coins were struck using the internationally accepted Troy ounce weights for the coins. Beginning in 2016, the People’s Republic of China switched to the use of grams to bring the collection in line with the nation’s metric system.
The Gold Chinese Panda became the first major gold bullion coin series to use Grams and not Troy ounces for its marked measurements. The 30 Gram Gold Chinese Panda Coins in this listing are available to you from varied years of issue, which for the 30 Gram designation includes 2016 to present.
