2011-Chinese-Gold-Panda-Coin

The Chinese Panda Gold Coin, which features an adorable image of a Panda bear, has become one of the most popular premium-bullion coins. The Chinese Gold Panda coin is only one of few gold coins issued worldwide in this size. The coins have a purity of .999 gold. The Panda coins have a much smaller mintage, compared to other gold bullion coins such as the American Eagle, and Canadian Maple Leaf.

The Chinese Panda coin was first issued in 1982, as a limited-edition gold bullion coin. Each coin features a cute Panda bear on the head side of the coin.

Four different sizes of coins were issued the first year - 1/10 ounce, ¼ ounce, ½ ounce and 1 full troy ounce size. The earlier dated Pandas, in particular, have a very small mintage. The mintage of the 1982 one troy ounce Panda coin had a mintage of under 14,000!

  • In 1983, the Chinese mint added a 1/20th ounce size coin.
  • In 1986, the larger sized 5 troy ounce and 10 troy ounce coins were added.
  • In 1987, China issued the gold Pandas with two different mint marks - Y and S. A third mint mark was issued for the boxed proof set.

Proof sets were issued in 1986 through 1995. These sets command a higher premium due to their scarcity and limited issue.

The gold Panda design was changed every year through 2000. The 2008 Panda coin is the 26th different design in the series, featuring an adult Panda and a cub munching on some bamboo stalks.

The Chinese government invoked a freeze on the design in 2001. That is why only the 2001 and 2002 issues feature the same design.

Ownership of the Gold Panda Coin was prohibited in China until 2004.

Panda coin jewelry is very popular. The one troy ounce coins are commonly used for necklace mountings. The smaller sized Pandas are used to create earrings, bracelets and pendants.
