The Chinese Gold Panda coin series, introduced in 1987, was still in its infancy on the market. This particular year stands out as a remarkable milestone in the series, as it marks the solitary instance when the Chinese Mint issued Gold Pandas from not just one, but two different branch mint locations. Today, you have the option to buy 1987-S Chinese Panda 1 oz Gold Coins online from Provident Metals.


  • Arrives with a sealed protective pouch!
  • 6th year of offering in the Chinese Panda 1 oz Gold Series!
  • Only date with Gold Pandas issued by two mints!
  • Contains 1 Troy oz of .999 pure gold.
  • The face value of 100 Yuan is backed by the Peoples Republic of China.
  • On the obverse is the Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests.
  • The reverse depicts a Giant Panda near a small pond.

The 1987 release of the Chinese Panda 1 oz Gold Coin came with coins struck by both the Shenyang Mint and the Shanghai Mint. To differentiate between the two, Shenyang coins came with Y mint marks and Shanghai coins with an S mint mark.


The obverse design of the 1987-S Chinese Panda Gold Coin presents the Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests in all its glory. This awe-inspiring image, a consistent feature on the coin’s obverse since 1982, showcases the grandeur of the Temple of Heaven Complex and offers a stunning view of the imposing main staircase. Inscriptions read the nation of issue and 1987.


Exclusive to the 1987-S 1 oz Gold Panda Coins, the reverse field exhibits a captivating design of the Giant Panda. Positioned near a peaceful pond, the delightful panda is depicted leaning down to quench its thirst, capturing a heartwarming moment in nature. Inscriptions in English include .999, 1 OZ AU, and 100, as well as the S mint mark in a diamond.


The Shanghai Mint has contributed significantly to the international numismatic community by introducing the renowned Chinese Gold Panda and Silver Panda coin series. These coins, featuring the iconic panda design, have gained popularity worldwide among collectors and investors.


The 1987-S Chinese Panda 1 oz Gold Coin offered here comes with individual pouches. Each coin is sealed inside a plastic pouch.
