There are precious few animals more associated with China than the panda. The Chinese Panda gained global attention just a few years ago when it was revealed that the animal is facing extinction because of the species’ reluctance to mate. But the adorable panda bear has been closely associated with the country for thousands of years. Chinese tales and fables have long used the panda to symbolize virtues like peace and harmony with the Earth. Popular culture in the United States has closely associated China with pandas, helping to turn the symbolic animal into one of the most popular exotic creatures. 

Celebrate the panda and its close relationship to China with this 1 Oz Chinese Gold Panda Coin. We were particularly impressed with the texture and color variation in this piece. The dark and light spots of the panda are clearly visible, and the textured background of bamboo trees behind the panda are rendered in exceptional detail. The mighty panda is depicted here in a laid-back post as he munches on a bamboo leaf. The famed Chinese “Temple of Heaven” decorates the reverse of this coin, and it bears a face value of 500 Yuan backed by the government of China. 

Key Features: 

  • .999 pure gold, 1 Troy Ounce. 
  • Face value: 500 Yuan. Backed by Chinese government. 
  • Obverse Depiction: A Chinese Panda munches on a bamboo leaf in front of a bamboo forest. 
  • Reverse Depiction: A highly detailed rendering of the Temple of Heaven. 

While some coins are designed with utilitarianism in mind, this particular piece’s creators went to great lengths to emphasize the beauty and intricacy of its artwork. The obverse of the coin is extremely detailed. Many collectable gold coins struggle with introducing various colors into their designs, but not this coin. Though it is minted with .999 pure gold, the black limbs, ears, and eyes of the panda are displayed in their original dark glory. The floor the panda sits upon is also black, adding an element of layering and perspective to the piece that we don’t often see in similar bullion coins. 

The reverse side of the 1 Oz Chinese Gold Panda Coin is similarly detailed. The dark black background underscoring the Temple of Heaven allows the structure to really stand out, and its incredible detail pays respect to one of China’s most beautiful historical buildings. The Temple of Heaven was originally constructed during the Ming and Qing Dynasties, where it was known as the center of the Chinese religious world. The site became a UNESCO World Heritage Site back in 1998, and has remained one of the most significant cultural monuments in the country since then. 

Appreciators of China’s complex and beautiful history should strongly consider picking up this coin. The obverse of the coin recognizes the incredible place of the Chinese Panda, which has become one of the most popular Chinese symbols in the world. The reverse highlights yet another cultural landmark of the Chinese peoples with a detailed depiction of the Temple of Heaven.
