Chinese Gold Panda coins were relabeled starting in 2016 to feature new weight markings in Grams rather than Troy ounces. The first major gold bullion coin program to do this, the Chinese Mint stated that the aim of the change was to bring the nation’s official bullion coin in line with its use of the metric system.
The 8 Gram Chinese Gold Panda coin replaced the previously offered 1/4 oz Gold Panda. The new 8 Gram Gold Panda weighs slightly less than its predecessor at 3 Grams rather than 3.1103 Grams, though it does have a larger diameter. The latter increased from 17.95 mm to 18 mm with the release of the 8 Gram Chinese Gold Panda.
On the obverse of 8 Gram Chinese Gold Panda Coins is the image of the Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests. Part of the larger Taoist complex known as the Temple of Heaven, the Hall was a site that allowed locals to pray for bountiful harvests each year to support the people and it was constructed between 1406 and 1420.
The reverse of Chinese Gold Panda Coins features a new image of the Giant Panda species each year. Native to China’s central highlands, the panda is well known for its white and black patches of fur, specifically around the eyes and face.
These 8 Gram Chinese Gold Panda coins have Mint State 69 grades. Coins in this condition have full, original mint luster and a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. Acceptable flaws at this level include minuscule contact marks or hairlines.
