The China Gold Panda is a series of gold coins first introduced by the People's Republic of China in 1982. Coins have been since than minted in many masses, minting techniques and special editions. China Panda gold coins first came on the market in 1982 in masses of 1, 1/2, 1/4 and 1/10 troy or. Because they did not have a nominal value, they are classified as medals. A year later, with the presence of a face value, they were ranked among the coins, and they were joined by a 1/20 troy oz version. In the imperial weight units, coins were minted up to including 2015 (in that year, the coins did not have the indicated weight and metal markings). After that date, coins began to be minted according to the metric weighting system. The current weights of BU gold coins are 30 g, 15 g, 8 g, 3 g and 1 g. Purchasing current year coins at a price represents an investment similar to an investment in any other investment gold coin. But history teaches us that, despite high mintages, the investment over the decades is often better refined than it would be in the case of buying other, completely typical investment gold coins that do not contain as much numismatic potential. Consequently, coins represent a wise decision to endow a numismatist.
