Long before China became the top gold producer in the world, it made its mark in the gold market with the Panda series of gold bullion coins. China's contribution differs from its competitors in two distinct ways -- the reverse design featuring the endangered panda bear changes annually, and second, each coin is minted as a limited edition. The largest mintage historically is projected for 2010 at 300,000 one-ounce coins. The smallest one-ounce mintage was 13,352 in 1982, the first year of issue.

In 2001, the Chinese mint decided to freeze the design -- a decision which provoked a protest. Thus in 2003, it reverted to the policy of an annual design change. On the obverse, Beijing's Temple of Heaven is featured annually.

Pandas are official legal tender coins issued by the Peoples' Bank of China and are minted in Shanghai and Shenyang. It is produced in one-ounce (troy), one-half ounce, one-quarter ounce, one-tenth ounce and one-twentieth ounce sizes. Mintages are consistently small when compared to other gold bullion coins, thus adding to their longer-term appeal in the collector market. The coin is minted as .999 fine gold, 24 karat.
