Chinese Gold Panda

Out of stock

One of the more intriguing gold coins on the market today is China’s very own Gold Panda, introduced in 1982 and distributed by the China Gold Coin Corporation.

Designated as the national gold coin of China, the Gold Panda is a very pure and high quality gold coin measuring in at .999 fineness and offered in sizes ranging from 1/20th of a troy ounce to one full troy ounce.

China also produces Silver Panda coins, with production of these versions of the coin having begun a year later in 1983.

Chinese Gold Panda Design


The obverse of the Chinese Gold Panda coin depicts the famous Chinese Temple of Heaven at the center of the coin.  There is an inscription on top that translates to “People’s Republic of China.”  The date of the rare coin is marked at the bottom.


The reverse of the gold coins offer annual variations of the beloved and rare Giant Panda depicted in a different form every year.  The only exception was 2001 and 2002, which, for unknown reasons, have the same design.

Chinese Gold Panda Specifications

The gold coins are minted primarily at the Shanghai, Beijing, Shenyang and Shenzen national mints. However, the Gold Pandas do not contain mint marks that would differentiate from which mint they came from.

The Gold Pandas are legal tender in the People’s Republic of China, and are currently issued in face value denominations of 500, 200, 100, 50 and 20 yuan.  These correspond with 1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/10 and 1/20 troy ounces of gold, respectively.

In 2016, the gold Pandas face values replaced by the metric system of grams, the standard system of weights used in the People’s Republic of China.  They now weight 30, 15, 8, 3, and 1 gram respectively.
