The Chinese Mint introduced the Gold Panda Series in 1982. The coins were available that first year in 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz gold. The next year, the Chinese Mint introduced its first Silver Panda coin and introduced the diminutive 1/20 oz gold coin.
From 1982 to 2000, the Gold Pandas were issued with lower face values than currently featured on the coins. In 2001, the face values were increased to the current levels for each coin. In 2016, a bigger change came as the Chinese Mint abandoned the use of Troy oz for Grams, with the 1/10 oz gold coin, for example, becoming the 3 Gram gold coin.
In the obverse design of 2023 3 Gram Gold Panda Coins, the mint continues with the image of the Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests. This design has been in use on the coins since the 1982 debut of the series.
For the reverse design element, the 2023 Chinese Gold Panda Coin features a new image of two Giant Pandas. This image shows one panda standing on the ground as it leans against the trunk of a tree. Another panda is featured lounging on a high branch of the tree as it reaches down toward its companion with one paw.
These 2023 3 Gram Chinese Gold Panda Coins are available to purchase in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Each coin comes with its own plastic pouch for delivery.
