Gold Panda Coins - The most important of the traditional Chinese holidays, the Chinese New Year (also known as the Chinese Lunar New Year) has become a much-celebrated event not only in China but in countries around the world. Beginning on the first day of the first month of the traditional Chinese calendar, the Festival of the New Year is a centuries-old celebration that includes red decorations, presents, food, clothing and cooperative family preparations for luck and good fortune in the upcoming year. This year, 2016, is the Year of the Monkey in the traditional Chinese calendar.
In addition to the Lunar Coins, the Gold Panda Coins are likewise perfect emblems of the Chinese New Year celebration. The unique, aesthetic nature of the Chinese Panda Coin makes it a particular favorite to coin collectors around the world. The obverse designs of the standard Chinese Gold and Silver Coins depict the image of the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvest of the Temple of Heaven in Beijing, a famous example of classic Chinese architecture. The reverse designs depict the panda, China’s rare and well-known animal, as the main motif. Each Panda has a unique style, with a design that changes every year.
Issued by the People's Republic of China since 1982, the Chinese Gold Pandas are .999 fine gold. The Gold Pandas are typically available in 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/10 oz, and 1/20 oz sizes. However, the Gold Chinese Pandas are also available in larger sizes, such as 5 oz, 12 oz, and kilo sizes. Several Chinese mints produce the Chinese Gold Panda bullion coins, including Beijing, Shenzhen, Shanghai, and Shenyang.
