Each 2018 3 Gram Chinese Gold Panda Coin in this listing is in BU condition. Coins in this condition exhibit no signs of wear and tear. However, minor flaws resulting from the coining process at the mint are possible and include breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, or contact marks.
Chinese Gold Panda coins have characteristics that make them unique among other gold coins for sale. First and foremost, they feature a new design on the obverse face every year. The theme remains constant on the Giant Panda, but the exact depiction used is refreshed each year by the designers at the Chinese Mint.
Secondly, the coins now feature weights measured in Grams as of 2016. Ditching the popular use of Troy ounces, which most investors measure their accounts by, the Chinese Gold Pandas are now available in 30 Gram, 15 Gram, 8 Gram, 3 Gram, and 1 Gram weights to replace the previously issued 1 oz, oz, oz, 1/10 oz, and 1/20 oz, respectively.
On the obverse of all 2018 3 Gram Chinese Gold Panda Coins is the image of the panda. These lovable creatures are docile, misleading given their massive size and strength. The pandas natural habitat exists in the highlands of Chinas mountainous central regions. The face value, weight, purity, and metal content are engraved on this side.
The reverse of the Chinese Gold Panda includes the largest building from the Temple of Heaven complex, which is known as the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests. Emperors would attend prayer here during annual ceremonies hoping for a good harvest, but it is widely regarded as a Taoist temple.
All Chinese Panda coins are minted at the Chinese Mints various locations. These 3 Gram Chinese Gold Pandas replace the previously issued 1/10 oz coins.
