First minted in 1982, the Gold Panda is China's official gold bullion coin. Commonly referred to by collectors and investors as "Pandas," these coins are renowned for their unadorned design and classic beauty and contain 1/20 ounce of .999 fine gold each.
Reflecting China's rich cultural heritage and storied past, this coin contains classic symbols of the world's most populous country. Depicted on the obverse of this remarkable gold bullion coin is a wide-eyed Giant Panda, shown sipping water from a placid stream. The reverse features a rendering of the Temple of Heaven, which was built during the Ming Dynasty in the fifteenth century as a house of worship for China's ruling elite. The Temple of Heaven, which still stands at the southern edge of Beijing, attracts visitors from all over the world. NOTE: Part of the charm of the Chinese Panda is that its design varies by year. The design on the coin you receive may differ from the coin featured in the image.

About Gold: Of all the precious metals, gold has been the most popular for investments, both today and throughout history, as the designated store of value for kings and wealthy individuals. Today's paper money derives its purchasing power only through confidence in a nation's ability to maintain a "prudent fiscal policy." In turbulent times, such as those we are experiencing in the world today, diversifying your savings/investment strategy by adding gold may be a smart move. Indeed, many experts suggest that 10% to 15% of portfolio assets be in precious metals.
IMPORTANT! The retail price reflects today's market price for gold. Market prices for gold, like the prices of all commodities, fluctuate daily.
