2021 Gold Pandas Highlight Bond Between Mother & Child!

Just as the United States has mints in Philadelphia, Denver, San Francisco and West Point that strike a portion of a coin’s overall mintage, China spreads its coins between several mints. The difference is that China does not add mint marks to its coins! It is only through a careful screening process that tracks which coins come from which mint that experts can determine the mint of origin — a process we have perfected through our close relationship with mint officials!

Each coin available in this offer was struck in 30 grams of highly pure 99.9% gold and bears a label that identifies China’s Shenyang Mint as its mint of origin. These coins are also 500 Yuan legal tender in the People’s Republic of China and feature the newest one-year-only design in the Panda series:

Adorable One-Year-Only Design

The new 2021 design was created by Chinese coin designer Tong Fang. Ms. Tong’s design for the 2021 Panda coin features a mother panda and her growing cub as he explores his tree-climbing abilities — an absolutely heart-melting image that pays tribute to the special bond between mother and child! The obverse displays the Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests located in Beijing’s Temple of Heaven. It is encircled by the phrase “People’s Republic of China” in Chinese along with the 2021 year date.

The magnificent design is made even more adorable thanks to the skill and craftsmanship of the China Mint’s artisans. In fact, these coins are so pristine that each has been graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being in flawless Mint State-70 (MS70) condition, a distinction that means your perfectly-graded coins will have ZERO imperfections — showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended!

Key First Releases Certification

NGC has also certified that these Gold Pandas are First Releases (FR) coins, a designation that means these coins were received by NGC or an NGC-approved depository within the first 30 days of the their release. Collectors seek out these coins because they are produced with new dies and considered to have sharper strikes and deeper mirrors than those that are struck later.

To top it off, each coin has been sonically sealed in an acrylic capsule and encapsulated with an exclusive label personally signed by designer Tong Fang! Ms. Fang is renowned within the numismatic community for Chinese coin designs. In addition to 2021, she was officially chosen to design the Panda image for 2019, and will also be responsible for the 2023, and 2027 releases, as well.

Only a limited number of these coins will ever be made available. Grab one for yourself now before they’re all gone!
