Chinese Gold Panda coins were first issued by the Chinese Mint in 1982. The coins available that first year included 1 oz, oz, oz and these 1/10 oz Chinese Gold Panda Coins. Always available in .999 pure gold, the coins in this series have been issued with slight changes in the denomination over the years.
From 1982 to 2000, the 1/10 oz Chinese Gold Panda coins had a face value of 10 Yuan, while the coins available from 2001 to 2015 featured a 50 Yuan face value. The 1/10 oz Chinese Gold Panda is no longer produced in this specific weight, with the Chinese Mint switching to Grams for its coinage in 2016 and the weights altering slightly as a result.
On the reverse of the Chinese Gold Panda coinage is a design of the Giant Panda species. The scientific name for the Giant Panda is AILUROPODA MELANOLEUCA, which translates in English as black and white cat-foot. The term is based upon the notable appearance of the species, which has fur covering its body that is black and white in color. The most notable patches are the black patches around the eyes on their otherwise-white heads.
The obverse of all 1/10 oz Chinese Gold Panda Coins includes the Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests. Located in the south-central neighborhoods of Beijing, the Temple of Heaven complex was built between 1406 and 1420 and visited by Emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties regularly. The emperors would visit to partake in annual ceremonies of prayer to Heaven in hopes of bountiful harvests.
