The 2011 China Panda 1oz Gold Coin is the 30th edition in the series. First launched in 1982, the China Panda gold coin has become very popular. The motif of the panda changes annually and makes the coin appealing to collectors. Due to the low surcharge, the coin is also ideal for investment purposes.
The 2011 China Panda Gold Coin is 999/1000 pure and comes in 1 oz, ½ oz, ¼ oz and 1/10 oz sizes.
Since 2005, the process of "Reflection Minting" is used for the presentation of the panda and its imitating black and white coloring. Here, the surface of the coin is produced with a smooth background finish that it acts like a mirror. The light incidence at a certain angle, makes the different parts of the coin appear lighter or darker, so the black and white fur of the Panda is accentuated.
The motif page of the China Panda gold coin remains unchanged, showing the Temple of Heaven (Chinese: Tiantán) in Beijing. Above the temple in a semicircular are Chinese characters that translate "People's Republic of China". The year of issue “2011” is under the motif.
The value page depicts two pandas, a mother and her cub. The little boy is shown cuddling his mother. In the background is a bamboo grove. The nominal value "500 元" can be read above the head of the mother panda. The weight, metal and fineness "1 oz Au.999" are displayed underneath the motif in a section lined with bamboo leaves.
