Counterfeiting Gold Pandas is indeed a great challenge, thanks to their detailed and delicate designs that alternate on a yearly basis. The only suitable metal that meets the density criteria is tungsten which is a perfect substitute, as it is cheap and weighs almost the same as gold. But while gold is malleable, tungsten is quite brittle, so it cannot be worked to create the desired detail and finish. Therefore, China Panda manufacturing quality is almost impossible to copy. In addition, the artistry of the design, and the exact specifications of the coin make a genuine 2014 ½ ounce China Gold Panda differ. For coin connoisseurs, it is the distinctive bright yellow finish that really makes these coins stand out.
