Why purchase this 2020 ¥100 China 8 g Gold Panda?
Be a part of a tradition that began in 1982 with this 2020 8 g Gold Panda. The series started with four sizes and quickly expanded to five. Each new year - with a single exception - has brought a new design celebrating the issuing nation's most cherished symbol. In 2016, the series broke new ground when the China Mint started issuing it in metric units rather than imperial ones. This 8 g piece, which was struck from .999 fine gold, is the successor to the quarter ounce Panda. Part of a mintage of 600,000 pieces, it remains in GEM Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
Stunning Baby Panda Design by Song Luna
While the reverse design is new, the obverse once again bears the Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests. The building is part of the Temple of Heaven, one of Beijing's most important landmarks. Stairs lead up from the holder to the platform on which the structure stands. It consists of three circular, concentric tiers. Along the rim is a frame that bears two inscriptions, "People's Republic of China" in Chinese, and the date, "2020."
A resident of northern China, Song Luna, created the reverse design. Song has spent years studying pandas. A baby panda sits under a tree. He leans over to his side while enjoying a meal of bamboo leaves, feeding himself with one paw and grabbing more leaves with another. He is joined by two inscriptions, the coin's face value, which is to the left, and its weight and purity, "8 G AU .999," which is on the rim near his head.
