2016 China 50 Gram Gold NGC Gem Proof
A bold new chapter in the panda coin legacy – the 2016 Gold Panda Proof
Known the world over for its production of Gold and Silver Panda coins, which are highly sought after by collectors from around the world, the China Mint started a new tradition in 2016 with a key change to this beloved coin series. Though traditionally coins have been weighed in troy ounces, the standard system of measurement used in the People’s Republic of China is metric. Beginning in 2016, the beloved gold panda is now issued with its denomination, weight and purity all in the metric system.
These newly released gold proof issues have remained in high demand since they were first produced. The new, modern-issue Chinese coins are particularly popular in China, and international allocations have been drastically reduced for 2016…resulting in overwhelming purchase activity and a likely sellout. But if you act fast, you can get yours from GovMint.com!
