Chinese Panda Gold Coins are one of the oldest gold bullion coins in the market today. Introduced in 1982, the only programs with a longer history are the South African Krugerrand (1967) and the Canadian Maple Leaf (1979). Today, you have the opportunity to purchase 2017 Chinese Panda 8 Gram Gold Coins in perfect condition at Provident Metals.
2017 marked just the second time the Chinese Mint had produced its primary bullion coins in Gram weights instead of Troy ounces. The mint made the change after 2015, with the 2016 coins rolling out the new Gram weights. Each of the five coins was replaced, with weights changing from 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/10 oz, and 1/20 oz to 30 Gram, 15 Gram, 8 Gram, 3 Gram, and 1 Gram. These 2017 Chinese Panda 8 Gram Gold Coins replaced the 1/4 oz coin.
The Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests is depicted on the obverse of all 2017 Chinese Panda 8 Gram Gold Coins. This is the primary building located in the Temple of Heaven Complex. The broader complex was constructed in south-central Beijing between 1406 and 1420.
Each year, Chinese Panda 8 Gram Gold Coins have a new image of the Giant Panda species on the reverse. The 2017 coins feature an adult panda sitting on its backside with a long bamboo shoot in its paws.
The shift from Troy ounces to Grams in the weight of Chinese Panda Gold Coins resulted in minor changes to the size of most of the coins in the collection. In the case of the Chinese Panda 8 Gram Coin, the change from 1/4 oz to 8 Grams resulted in the coins weight actually increasing from 7.7758 Troy ounces to an even 8 Grams and its diameter increasing minimally from 21.95 MM to 22 MM. The thickness remained the same.
These 2017 Chinese Panda 8 Gram Gold Coins are available in perfect Mint State 70 condition. This means the coins showcase full, original mint luster with no detracting flaws of any kind. The included Early Release label indicates the coins were received for grading within the first 30 days of issue by the Chinese Mint. These coins are housed in special NGC protective plastic slabs with a distinctive red core label.
