In 1981, the Chinese Mint introduced the first coins in the Chinese Panda bullion coin series. Like other sovereign mints around the world, the Chinese Mint has used an anniversary date mark as an opportunity to introduce a new metallic version of its popular coins. The new Chinese Platinum Panda comes in the aforementioned 30 Gram and 1 Gram weights, roughly equivalent to other platinum programs offering a 1 Troy oz and 1/20 Troy oz option to investors. The coins share the same designs in 2022 as featured on the standard gold and silver BU coins.
For the obverse design of the 2022 Chinese Platinum Panda Coin, the Chinese Mint features the image of the Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests. A staple of this series dating all the way back to the 1981 debut of the gold coins, the Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests is the primary structure within the Temple of Heaven Complex in Beijing.
In the reverse field of 2022 1 Gram Platinum Panda Coins, you will find the all-new 2022 depiction of the Giant Panda. This year’s design offers two pandas as they enjoy a lighter moment in life while sliding through the snow. One of the pandas is going downhill head first on its belly, while the other one is sliding feet first on its back.
