The Chinese Mint is known for its bullion coin series, but these same Panda coins are now also available in proof versions. Available in both gold and silver, the proof coins are some of the finest specimens on earth. Right now, you can purchase the 2016 Proof Chinese Panda 150 Gram Gold Coins from Provident Metals.
The 2016 release year of the Chinese Panda Gold Coins marks many changes. The mint transitioned to grams as a way to better relate to the people of China. The metric system is more commonly used in China, so it makes sense that these coins be released in grams.
These coins ship in display boxes with Certificates of Authenticity. As proof specimens, you will see a sharper rim on each coin and a more beautiful design face.
The 2016 Chinese Panda design features a Giant Panda crawling on the trunk of a fallen tree that lies on the ground. The engravings on the obverse side of the coin include the symbol for Panda, as well as the weight, metal content, and purity of the metal used for the coin.
The reverse of all Chinese Panda coins showcases the same image of the Temple of Heaven. The image has remained unchanged since the inception of the coin series in 1982. The Temple of Heaven stands in the center of Beijing, where it has been used for more than 400 years as a place of worship. Engravings on this side of the coin include the year of issue.
It has been a remarkable year for the Chinese Mints Giant Panda series. First, the mint moved from Troy ounce sizes to grams. This is the first year of gram weight Pandas in both bullion and proof versions.
The Chinese Mint is responsible for producing bullion coins and paper banknotes for the country. The mint is operated by the government of China.
