The obverse features an illustration of the Beijing’s Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests, in the Temple of Heaven. Above the Hall Of Prayer is written in Chinese character “People’s Republic of China”, with the year written numerically below.
The reverse depicts the picture of a panda, iconic chinese symbol. The face value 500 Yuans surrounds the picture of the panda, as well as the weight and fineness.
First minted in 1992 by the People’s Bank of China, the Chinese Gold Panda is now minted at various mints across China including the Beijing Mint, the Shenzhen Mint, the Shanghai Mint and the Shenyang Mint. To better appeal to international investors and collectors, the mint changed in 2016 the weight of the coin from 1 troy ounce (31.1035 grams) to 30 grams. The new sizes of the gold panda now include: 1 gram, 3 grams, 8 grams, 15 grams, 30 grams, 50 grams, 100 grams and 150 grams. As a result, the Chinese Gold Panda minted before 2016 are likely to be more valuable, because their weight (1 ounce) is no longer used in the new coins minted.
Each year, the design of the Chinese Gold Panda changes. The only exception is for 2001 and 2002. During these years, a freeze of the design was announced. Bullion coins manufactured during these two years have identical designs. China decided to revert back to its original policy in 2003, to mint the gold panda with new design each years.
However, the obverse of the coin has never changed overtime and always features the Temple of Heaven in Beijing. The Temple of Heaven was constructed from 1406 to 1420 by the Yongle Emperor, so that the latest could pray to the heavens for a bountiful harvest. The same emperor was also responsible for the construction of the Forbidden City, the Temple of Sun, the Temple of Earth and the Temple of Moon. The Temple of Heaven was declared as a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO in 1998. This temple is praised as a “masterpiece of architecture… that had a profound influence on architecture and planning in the Far East for many centuries.”
First issued in 1982 by the People’s Bank of China, the Chinese Panda gold coin is cherished by people all around the world for its high gold content. Its various designs, featuring a black and white panda make this bullion coin unique among all the others.

One ounce gold coins are popular in the gold bullion market. They are a great way to split your precious metal holdings in smaller fractions. In fact, a large gold bar is not always the best option. Even if you will pay less per gram with gold bars, a large gold bar will restrict the fungibility of your investment. Buying 1 ounce gold bullion coins make your investment more divisible and liquid. In fact, you can trade few gold coins when you need cash, instead of selling a whole bar at once. On the other hand, a large gold bar will be more difficult to convert into cash. Therefore, it is worth paying a slightly higher premium above the gold spot spot price.
