The exquisite 2018 8 g China Panda gold coin is part of one of the world's most desirable coin series. An annually changing design makes it an appealing choice for collectors and the Chinese Panda is one of just a few coins to be struck in grams rather than troy ounces.
The Chinese Panda changes its reverse design each year and every new release is eagerly anticipated. For 2018, the 8g Gold China Panda features a head and shoulders portrait of an adult Giant Panda eating a bamboo shoot. The Giant Panda is as famous a symbol of the People's Republic of China as the mythical dragon and bamboo makes up 99% of its diet.
Due to popular demand, the weight and purity of the coin has been reinstated as part of the reverse design. The coin has a fine, reeded edge and its obverse features a stylised image of the Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests in the Temple of Heaven in Beijing. Since 2016, the 8g Gold Chinese Panda has replaced the 1/4 oz (7.758 g) coin in accordance with the metric system.
Each 2018 8g Chinese Panda is legal tender backed by the People's Bank of China with a face value of 100 Yuan. The series was launched in 1982 and is one of the most successful in the world. The 8g coin is a versatile option for both collectors and investors; more affordable than larger denominations yet with the same .999 purity and intriguing design features.
