This BOLD Collector Set contains one each of the five smaller sized (1g, 3g, 8g, 15g, 30g) 2018 China Gold Panda releases. Each coin comes in a mint-sealed capsule. These new metric gram coins closely correspond to the previous troy ounce weights (1/20 oz, 1/10 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/2 oz, 1 oz). This 5-coin set features one of the most consistently performing Gold bullion coins worldwide. The series' popularity continues to grow among both bullion investors and collectors alike. The panda in Chinese culture is recognized as a symbol of peace and friendship. And, of course, what's not to love about a bullion series dedicated to one of the most adored animals in the world?
The Gold Panda series was first introduced in 1982, and has featured a new panda design each year. The offering of a fresh new design for each release has collectors anxiously snatching them up as soon as they release. Annual pre-release sales are always strong.
From 1982-2015, the coins were minted in troy oz weight. In 2016, the Mint changed their bullion releases to adopt the metric standard.
The reverse design of this 2018 Gold Panda features a bold, close-up view of a single Giant Panda. Its head nearly fills the entire field, with just the top of its shoulders visible. The focus is on the panda's expression, as it gazes intently at the leafy bamboo branch in its paw. This is a wonderful design, which at once captures your eye (and your heart)!
With a total of 57 grams .999 fine Gold, the releases include one each of these metric gram coins:
