The 1 oz Gold Panda, introduced in 1982, featured a simple design showcasing one of the most beloved animals in the world. Since then, the yearly changing designs have become more intricate, but they always focus on the Chinese panda in its natural habitat. The 1 oz Silver Panda followed shortly after, with the first bullion release coming in 1989. These Silver coins feature the same designs as the Gold coins but opened the series up to new investors and collectors.
The arrival of the 2018 Gold and Silver Pandas has been highly anticipated around the world. This new design focuses on an up-close image of a panda curiously examining a bamboo shoot. The reverse of the coin displays the unchanged visual of the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvest in the Temple of Heaven in Beijing.
“Precious Metals collectors and investors in all parts of the world treasure the Chinese Panda Series,” APMEX Director of Merchandising Ryan Boyles said. “This series is valued for its lower mintages, a design that changes every year and its premium appreciation. We are pleased to once again offer these beautiful Gold and Silver coins to our customers.”
The 2018 Silver Panda contains 30 grams of .999 fine Silver. As in years past, the 2018 Gold Panda is offered in a variety of sizes, from 1 gram up to 30 grams, all containing .999 fine Gold.
Chinese Panda coins truly have a global reach, for they are as iconic and beautiful as they are popular. Find all 2018 Gold and Silver Panda coins now available at APMEX.
