Many major bullion coin programs available to investors today feature the same designs each year. While the images on coins such as the Gold American Eagle or Gold Canadian Maple Leaf are stunningly gorgeous, they do not ever change. The Gold Chinese Panda brings its own beauty to precious metals, with the added bonus of a new design element on the reverse each year. The 8 Gram Gold Chinese Panda Coin is currently available for your purchase online at Silver.com.

Like many of the world’s other gold bullion coins, the Gold Chinese Panda bears images that are representative of the nation itself. The reverse side of all Gold Panda coins depicts the unofficial symbol of the People’s Republic of China; the internationally recognizable Giant Panda species. The obverse always features the same image: that of the Temple of Heaven’s main building.
There are two primary aspects of the Gold Chinese Panda program that set it apart from its competitors. First and foremost, the coins in this series are offered with a new depiction of the Giant Panda on the reverse each year. Secondly, as of 2016 the Chinese Mint no longer uses Troy ounces, but rather Grams for its weight measurements. These 8 Gram Gold Chinese Pandas replace the former ¼ oz Gold Panda coin.
On the reverse is one of many different Gold Panda coin designs. Some of the issue years feature a single panda on the coin’s reverse, while others capture one or more playful pandas. In recent years, the bamboo plant which is central to the panda’s diet has been incorporated into the design in a different way with each release.
The obverse of the 8 Gram Gold Chinese Panda Coin includes the Temple of Heaven’s Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests. The complex was constructed between 1406 and 1420. The site was originally used for Chinese heaven worship and eventually became a Taoist religious site as well.
