For an affordable gold coin that comes at a modest price, there may be no better option than the 2018 1 Gram Chinese Gold Panda Coin! These gold coins are just 10 mm in diameter and 0.83 mm thick, but they still are struck from .999 fine gold and carry an actual gold weight (AGW) of 1 gram. They are also legal tender with a designated face value of 10 Yuan.
The reverse design bears the close-up image of Giant Panda, perhaps China's most recognizable symbol. Inscriptions stand out against a pattern of leafy bamboo that flank the panda along the top and bottom of the rim. The weight and purity, reading "1 g Au .999," are found at the top while the coin's legal tender denomination appears at the bottom rim. The edge is reeded.
The Tower of Prayers for Abundant Harvest, a picturesque building in Beijing, appears on the obverse design. The image is contained within a ring where inscriptions for the year-date "2018" and the name of the issuing nation ("People's Republic of China" expressed in Chinese characters) are prominently featured.
These Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) coins are shipped in the original plastic packaging supplied by the central mint of the People's Bank of China. Whether you are an avid collector or more interested in accumulating gold bullion, the 2018 1 Gram Chinese Gold Panda is a trusted choice that continues to receive acclaim all over the world.
