Chinese Panda Gold Coins

November 17, 2009 – Chinese panda gold coins were first minted in 1982, and these coins have become popular collector’s items because of they’re annual design change on the obverse. The reverse of the coin perennially displays the “Temple of Heaven”, an official logo of the Republic of China in Bejing. Chinese Pandas are minted with .999 fine gold, and they are produced in 1 ounce, ½ ounce, ¼ ounce, 1/10 ounce and 1/20 ounce denominations, and the China Mint has produced five and 12-ounce medallion coins as well. The China Mint is known for releasing Chinese Panda gold coins in very limited quantities, so investors and collectors who hold these coins are truly in a class of their own.

US investors were relatively new to the gold bullion market when Chinese Gold Panda coins were first released, and the China Mint placed large premiums on the pandas that still remain today. In 1982, US investors were only 11 years removed from a national gold bullion prohibition that President Franklin Roosevelt enacted at the height of the Great Depression in 1933.

Many nations first began minting gold coins after 1971, when US President Richard Nixon removed the United States from the Gold Standard and legalized gold bullion ownership. However, Roosevelt’s move also allowed for the US Treasury to fire up the dollar’s printing presses.

Snowballing debt is chasing down our nation’s financial future, so our government may again be forced to confiscate the bullion of US citizens. US investors have a way to free themselves from the threat of gold bullion confiscation, so investors who want to learn more about the gold market are invited to register and explore our free, award-winning gold investment tutorial.
