The Chinese Gold Panda has been issued since 1982 and has a 99.99% gold content. Panda coins denominated in troy ounces were discontinued by the Chinese mint at the end of 2015 because China adopted the metric system.
The various denominations:
- 30g or 1oz: 500 yuan
- 15g or ½ oz: 200 yuan
- 8g or ¼ oz: 100 yuan
- 3g or 1/10 oz: 50 yuan
- 1g or 1/20 oz: 20 yuan
Known around the world for investors and collectors, the coins are especially unique in that each year a new panda design is published. This typically leads to higher premiums compared to the gold bullion coins from other mints worldwide.
