The Chinese Panda coin was first introduced in 1982 and has since been in continuous production. With the new coins the old weight system of troy ounces will be replaced by the metric system. The coins will therefore be available in a 30g version.
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 clutching a branch, with a bamboo forest in the background. The face value of 500 yuan is below the panda bear. The weight “30 g” and the gold content marked “Au .999” are inscribed at the bottom.
