Why add this exceptionally struck 500 Yuan Frosted Bamboo 2003 1 oz. Gold Panda coin to your collection?
The Gold Panda series issued by the China Mint has been characterized by exquisitely crafted, annually changing imagery devoted to the giant panda since its launch in 1982. Following an anomaly within the series in 2001-2002, which featured the same design, the 2003 release marked the return to the series' highly anticipated single year of issue imagery. Two major varieties have been identified for the 2003 Gold Pandas, which are distinguished by the bamboo forest's frosted or mirrored finish.
Sensational Panda Imagery
Obverse: Centered on the obverse is a rendition of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests in the Temple of Heaven in Beijing. The grand structure is encircled by a frame bearing the inscriptions "2003" and "People's Republic of China" in Chinese characters.
Reverse: The reverse features a circular inset adorned with the frosted bamboo forest. A single panda appears to be stepping through the circle, surrounded by clusters of polished bamboo foliage. The inscription "1 OZ AU .999" curves above, with the coin's denomination of "500 Yuan" positioned beside the creature.
