2016 Gold Pandas

 



We also offer Gold Pandas in fractional varieties. The fractional coins are popular as collectibles.

Chinese Gold Panda coins are one of the most popular of all bullion coins for collectors due to its annually changing designs. In 2016, it becomes the first sovereign bullion gold coin to move to the metric system. The one-ounce Gold Panda is replaced with the 30 gram Gold Panda and contains .9645 troy ounces of .999 fine gold.

 

The obverse of the Gold Pandas depict the Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests Temple of Heaven in Beijing in the center with Chinese characters on top saying "Zhonghua Renmin Gongheguo," meaning People's Republic of China, and the bottom showing the year of issue. The reverse portrays the rare and beautiful panda. Unlike many gold bullion coins, the design on the reverse changes yearly, with the exception of 2001 and 2002, which share the same design.
