The Chinese Panda is one of the increasingly popular, and easily recognizable, bullion coin programs in the world. Produced in both silver and gold on an annual basis, the program famously changes the Giant Panda design featured on its obverse face each year. In 2016, the Chinese Mint made a significant change to the program that impacts it going forward. Today, 30 Gram Gold Chinese Panda Coins are available from varied years online at Silver.com.

Starting in 2016, all Chinese Panda coins are measured and marked in Grams instead of Troy ounces. The change doesn’t impact the content of the coins, which still feature .999 fine gold. The 30 Gram Gold Chinese Panda replaces the 1 oz, with the 15 Gram replacing the ¼ oz and the 8 Gram replacing the 1/10 oz coins.
All 30 Gram Gold Chinese Panda Coins in this listing are in BU condition. Coins in this condition show no signs of wear and tear, though you are bound to notice minor flaws ranging from breaks in the luster and spotted surfaces to contact marks from the production process at the mint.
On the reverse of all 30 Gram Chinese Gold Panda coins is the image of the Temple of Heaven. Located in south-central Beijing, the Temple of Heaven was built in the 15th century and is just one building in a larger complex of religious buildings and social gathering sites.
The obverse of the Chinese Gold Panda coin features varying designs of the Giant Panda. Each year there is a new design, but certain features remain year after year. For example, the background field typically features a bamboo wall and the face value of the coin in Yuan is always listed on this side.
Silver.com cannot guarantee the specific 30 Gram Gold Chinese Panda Coin you’ll receive today. We do guarantee the coins are in BU condition, but the year of issue will come from 2016 onward and is determined by availability in our warehouse when your order is processed for shipping.
The Gold Chinese Panda is struck under the authorization of the People’s Bank of China by the Chinese Mint. Coins produced by the Chinese Mint do not bear mint marks, making it difficult to identify the origins of individual coins.
