History of the
Chinese Gold Panda
Bullion Coin




The Chinese Gold Panda bullion coin is a series of gold bullion coins introduced, in 1982, by the People's Republic of China.

panda

The Gold Panda bullion coins were introduced in the following sizes:

The coins are produced with a purity of .999 gold.  (ozt. = troy ounce)

In 1983, the 1/20th oz. Chinese Gold bullion coin was added to the series.

The gold panda bullion coins are issued in Proof-like quality with a different panda design each year.

In 2001, the Chinese government decided to stop changing the design every year and thus the 2001 and 2002 Gold Pandas are identical. (see photos in mintage section below)

However, after opposition to the changes were made by bullion investors and collectors, China quickly changed their policy in 2003 and reverted back to their original policy of a new panda image every year.

1983 thru 2015

chinese gold pandaOld Design & Weight of the Twentieth oz. Gold Panda's reverse side

Since the Chinese Government started producing the Gold Panda Bullion coin they had always inscribed, on the reverse side, the coin's weight in troy ounces 1/20oz., metal content - Au, and purity - .999.

In 2015, the reverse design of the gold and silver panda bullion coins were changed, so much so that the content, weight and purity of the coin was removed completely.   (See photo)

The removal of the inscribed weight and purity on the coin put some bullion investors on edge because it made it easier for counterfeiters to reproduce the coin.

However, in late 2014, it was rumored that in 2015 the Chinese were going to change the coins weight from ounces to grams and that the removal of the coin's inscriptions was in preparation for this change.

The coin's weight did not change in 2015, but it was believed that the Chinese would make the change soon.









2016

1 gram Gold Chinese Panda bullion coin

As expected, in 2016, the Chinese Gold Coin Corporation changed the weight of the all their bullion coins from troy ounces to grams.

The 1/20th ozt. Gold Panda bullion coin was changed to the '1gram' Gold Panda. 

One twentieth of a troy ounce is equal to 1.55 grams and as you will read in the short excerpt below the convergence from ounces to grams makes it easier for those who commonly use the metric system to buy and or trade the bullion coins.

The following excerpt, taken from this CHNGC article, is about the Chinese Gold Coin Corporation's change from troy ounces to grams...(a translator will be needed if you click the "this CHNGC article" link)

"This version of Panda coins weighing unit all from "ounce" to "G", can be described as a very bold attempt, after all, "ounces" is the common international gold unit of measurement for broader, better integration the global market, "g" changes to foreign investment Jicang's recognition of the fact there are unknown risks"

"But for Chinese people, especially for the non-specialist collection of Chinese people, the order "g" instead of "ounce" is undoubtedly applaud favor."

"Ounce" in the eyes of the Chinese people is a very obscure word, such as 1/3 oz, 1/10 oz 1/20 ounce gold coin actually has multiple, if the value of the market price of gold and silver to calculate what is How much, these people seem very vague, even if the final figure out the relationship between ounces and grams, must have been some complex conversion and calculations in order to obtain results."

It is often said that the Chinese Gold Coin Corporation, the Chinese Government entity that produces all of the country's bullion coins, likes to fulfill the requests of 'its' people, the weight change for the Panda Bullion Coins is an example of this.

Mintage Change

For the last four years, the Chinese Gold Coin Corporation minted a maximum of 800,000, 1/20th oz. gold panda bullion coins. 

In 2016, for the new 1 gram gold bullion coin, they reduced the maximum mintage to 600,000.

The reduction in mintage may drive up the premium on these coins in future years.
