Originally offered as a ½ Troy oz coin from 1982 onward, the coin has been marketed as the 15 Gram Chinese Gold Panda since the Chinese Mint switched the coins to a metric system of measurements and weights in 2016.

The Chinese Mint is the official sovereign mint of the People’s Republic of China and it issues the Chinese Gold Panda coinage annually for the nation. The coins originated in 1982 with a 1 oz gold, ½ oz, ¼ oz, and 1/10 oz gold option. In 1983, the Chinese Mint offered an additional fractional-weight coin in 1/20 oz of gold.

Our warehouse team selects coins from our available stock at the time your order is processed and we cannot reserve specific date marks or designs for your purchase.
On the reverse of the 15 Gram Chinese Gold Panda coin is the image of a Giant Panda bear. The coins feature the Giant Panda, a species of bear that relies upon bamboo for 99% of its dietary needs.
The obverse of all Chinese Gold Panda coins includes the same design each year. The Temple of Heaven is a religious complex built in Beijing between the years of 1406 and 1420, and is visited annually by Taoist religious followers.
15 Gram Chinese Gold Panda coins replaced the ½ oz Gold Pandas. The new 15 Gram coins have a precise weight of 15 Grams and a diameter of 27 mm, while the ½ oz coins had a weight of 15.5515 Grams and a diameter of 27 mm. This was the only weight in the series that did not lose surface area in the change from Troy ounces to Grams.
