Why add this flawless Frosted Bamboo variety 2003 China 1/2 oz. Gold Panda bullion coin to your collection?
The Gold Panda series has been an annual product of the China Mint since 1982, featuring imagery dedicated to the giant panda. The 2003 release of the series represented the first design change in two years. There were two distinctive varieties issued, which are characterized by a frosted or mirrored finish on the bamboo forest.
Sensational Single Year of Issue Panda Design
Obverse: The obverse features a magnificent view of the Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests, the stunning three-gabled circular landmark building located in the Beijing Temple of Heaven. A wide border surrounds the image containing the inscription "People's Republic of China" curving above in Chinese characters, and "2003" below.
Reverse: The coin's identifying frosted bamboo forest is depicted on the reverse, in a left-justified circular inset, serving as the background to a forward walking panda. The panda is rendered as if stepping out of the inset, into the matte finished field area of the coin, which is sparsely decorated with branches of mirrored bamboo leaves. Inscriptions include "1/2 OZ AU .999" and the coin's "200 Yuan" face value.
