Chinese Panda Gold Coin
Throughout the years the China Mint has kept the same panda design but has frequently changed the position of their renowned animal likeness. The obverse has been redesigned each year (except for 2002) reflecting a different view of the giant panda in his habitat. The beauty of each new design, its guaranteed purity, and its wide range of sizes from the rare one kilo to 1/20 ounce has added to its appeal. The reverse of the coin depicts Tien Tien, The Temple of Heaven, one of the oldest temples in Beijing and remains the same from year to year.
The Chinese Panda was first introduced in 1982 in 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz and 1/10 oz. The 1/20 oz was introduced in 1983.
