- Chinese Gold Panda coins have considerable upside potential. Sought after by collectors because of their limited annual mintage and varying design, Chinese Gold Pandas fetch considerable premiums in the secondary market.
- Chinese Gold Panda coins are money. Deemed legal tender by the Chinese Central Bank, the Gold Panda coin is exempt from Value Added Tax inside mainland China.
- The Chinese Gold Panda coin is internationally recognised. Being the only legal tender gold bullion coins in the world to portray a Panda Bear, an endemic animal to China, assures investor recognition worldwide.
- Gold Pandas are 99.9% pure gold. In many ways it is more exciting to hold a Gold Panda in your hands than an alloyed gold coin. Unlike alloyed gold, pure 24 karat gold has a lustrous gold colour and being of higher density it also has a better heft or “feel” to it.
- Chinese Gold Pandas are the equivalent of savings. Gold Pandas are an ideal choice for any type of long-term investor who appreciates the security and stability of owning physical legal tender gold coins.
- Gold Panda coins are excellent portfolio diversifiers. Gold’s low correlation with other financial assets makes the Gold Pandas serve as a portfolio hedge against market risk.
The obverse portrays the Temple of Heaven, a UNESCO world heritage site that consists of a complex of religious buildings located in the central parts of Beijing. Above the Temple of Heaven is a text in Chinese that means “People’s Republic of China” and inscribed at the bottom is the year of mintage.
The reverse depicts a sitting panda holding a branch, with a bamboo forest in the background. The face value of 500 Yuan is on the right of the panda bear. The weight “1oz” and the gold content marked “Au .999” are inscribed at the bottom.
