When investors look for reliable, government-backed gold and silver bullion to invest in, the Chinese Mint is often an attractive bet. The Chinese Panda series of bullion coins, available in gold and silver, are incredibly popular annual releases that have the added benefit of a collectability with new designs on the obverse each year. Today, the 30 Gram Chinese Gold Panda Coin is available to you from JM Bullion from random years of issue in BU condition.

The Chinese Gold Panda is a lot like its competing gold bullion releases in that it is available on an annual basis from a sovereign mint. The coins are available in gold with fractional weights, as well as weights that exceed 1 oz, much like a number of other programs.
However, the Chinese Gold Panda coin was the first bullion coin program in the world to introduce a new obverse, primary design to the surface each year. While the Canadian Maple Leaf and American Eagle use the same design each year, the panda imagery on these coins changes each year. Additionally, in 2016 the Chinese Gold Panda became the first major bullion coin in the world to feature all weights in Grams, rather than Troy ounces.
All 30 Gram Chinese Gold Panda Coins in this listing are in BU condition. Coins in this condition show no signs of wear and tear, though you are bound to notice minor flaws ranging from breaks in the luster and spotted surfaces to contact marks from the production process at the mint.
On the reverse of all 30 Gram Chinese Gold Panda coins is the image of the Temple of Heaven. Located in south-central Beijing, the Temple of Heaven was built in the 15th century and is just one building in a larger complex of religious buildings and social gathering sites.
The obverse of the Chinese Gold Panda coin features varying designs of the Giant Panda. Each year there is a new design, but certain features remain year after year. For example, the background field typically features a bamboo wall and the face value of the coin in Yuan is always listed on this side.
