The Chinese Panda gold coins were first minted for circulation in 1982 and they are produced by several different mints throughout China. The four largest mints for these 1oz gold coins are: Beijing, Shenzhen, Shanghai and Shenyang.
Pandas are minted in the following denominations: 1oz, 1/2oz, 1/4oz, 1/10oz and 1/20oz. Our wholesale markets currently have the 1 ounce Chinese Panda gold coins for sale.
The coin's panda design changes each year (except for the years 2001 & 2002), but the theme stays the same. 2001 saw a change in the denomination of the 1 ounce coin from 100 Yuan to 500 Yuan and the obverse of the coin has so far only had 3 different designs but they are all of the same location; the Temple of Heaven, located in Beijing.
