Chinese Panda — the first modern collectible gold bullion coin
China entered the gold bullion coin market in 1982 with the Chinese Panda when opposition to South Africa’s apartheid policy was driving up demand for alternatives to the Krugerrand. Sensing the market potential for future collectibles, China are minting Pandas in strictly limited numbers and, with the exception of 2002 (which was the same design as the 2001 Panda), each year features a different depiction of panda bears on the reverse.
The obverse portrays the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests of the Temple of Heaven in Beijing, with The Peoples’ Republic of China inscribed in Chinese above and the mint year inscribed below. Minor variations in the design are present in some years that identify the originating mint.
Pandas are struck in five weights — 1/20 oz., 1/10 oz., ¼ oz., ½ oz, and 1 oz. (the 1/20 oz. coin was not minted in 1982). In addition, 5 oz. and 12 oz. coins have occasionally been minted, and proof sets of the Chinese Panda were issued between 1986 and 1995.
