The Chinese Panda Gold Coin
The Gold Panda Legacy Continues!
Some coin series just get better and better as time moves on -- and China's beloved Gold Pandas are a perfect example! These 2017 500 Yuan Gold Pandas are the latest in a beautiful progression of the series. To start, 2017 is only the second year that the series has used metric measurement, producing coins in unique 30 gram weight, struck in 99.9% pure gold. Next, this year's scene, featuring an adorable panda sitting and holding a stick of bamboo, is the latest in one-year-only reverse designs, making them extremely collectable. Finally, the obverse reverently depicts Beijing's Temple of Heaven -- an annual mainstay of the series.
