Buy Chinese Gold Pandas Online from CBMint
The Chinese Gold Panda
The Chinese Gold Panda is a government-issued gold bullion coin produced by the People’s Republic of China since 1982. These gold coins are produced by several different official mints in China, yet, strangely, feature no mint mark to indicate the actual mint of production. Regardless of mint, every Gold Panda is legal tender in China has its authenticity and quality fully backed by the Chinese government. Additionally, CBMint only sources Gold Panda bullion coins direct from official distributors, further ensuring product quality and authenticity.
Rather uniquely for a gold bullion coin, they have a design which changes yearly, depicting a different portrait of one or more pandas in their natural environment. The Chinese Gold Panda is produced in five different sizes, each of which shares the same overall design -- only the face value and weight (in troy ounces of gold) differ on each coin. The 1 Ounce Gold Panda is still the most common, but 1/20 ounce, 1/10 ounce, 1/4 ounce and 1/2 Ounce Gold Panda are also popular. A rare 1 kilogram Gold Panda also exists. The overall design motif is also shared with the Chinese Silver Panda. Also common to all denominations of Gold Panda is the gold fineness of .999. The beautiful and changing designs, coupled with the value of gold contained in each coin, has made the Chinese Gold Panda extremely popular among investors who buy gold coins online.

History of the Chinese Gold Panda
To compete on the world bullion market, China began to issue many types of precious metal bullion coins, with the famous Chinese Gold Panda first hitting the market in 1982. China long maintained restrictions on the private ownership of gold, so for some time only sold Gold Pandas to overseas customers. Regulations have since been lifted, and domestic investors have become one of the largest groups of people who are buying Chinese Gold Pandas online. Today, the Gold Panda is one of the most popular gold bullion coins on the market, and the Chinese Mints has kept production levels high in order to keep up with this demand.
