Over the course of its nearly four decade run, the Gold Panda series has enamored collectors of all ages. Its one-year only designs attract the attention of collectors with their beauty and originality. The series dates back to 1982 and made history in 2016 when it became the first gold coin series to be issued in metric units instead of imperial ones. This piece, which was struck from 30 g of .999 fine gold, is the successor to the 1 oz version. It was struck at the China Mint and will arrive in GEM Brilliant Uncirculated condition. It is part of a mintage of 700,000 pieces.
Featuring Song Lina's Adorable Baby Panda Design
As is tradition, the Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests features on the obverse. The building, which is located in the Chinese capital's Temple of Heaven, serves as a stunning example of traditional Chinese architecture. The circular structure consists of three tiers and stands atop an elevated platform, up to which stars lead from the holder. A rim frame encircling the edifice bears two inscriptions, "People's Republic of China," which is in Chinese characters at the top, and the date, "2020,' at the bottom.
Song Lina, a resident of northern China who has been studying Pandas for years, designed the reverse. It features a baby panda seated on the ground facing the holder. He is feeding himself bamboo leaves with his left front paw while grabbing more leaves from the tree above with his right one. The face value of the coin is inscribed to the left, while its weight and purity, "30 G AU .999," are inscribed along the rim above his head.
