Since its first appearance in 1982, the China Panda coin series has become a classic among precious metals investment products and is enjoying growing worldwide popularity. Due to the annually changing Panda motifs, the coin is sought after by collectors and investors alike. Because of lower mintage numbers and yearly design changes, the China Panda is among the few bullion coins that can rapidly develop a numismatic value.
Panda gold coins are not sold in China, and are available for sale through most bullion dealers around the world.
The motif page shows a portrait of the Temple of Heaven in Beijing, surrounded by a smooth background finish. The temple complex was built in the early 15th century and served as a prayer temple to the emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties for a good harvest.
In the border area is the country of origin in Chinese characters, which translates to "People's Republic of China". The year of issue "2010" is shown below the temple.
The value side shows two pandas playing. The animals are presented in front of a field of bamboo trees. The motif is emphasized by parallel borders with bamboo leaf patterns, on the ground and in the upper coin area. In the upper section, the number 100 and the symbol for yuan are engraved, which indicates the nominal value. On the bottom, the size, metal and purity is engraved as "1 oz Au .999".
