2017 Chinese Gold Panda 30g
Investment potential, popularity and charm combine to make the new brilliant uncirculated 2016 Chinese Gold Panda 30g a great choice for buyers. And introduces a new international weight standard for gold Panda enthusiasts.
It’s important to note that the Chinese Gold Panda has been struck in each year since 1982 (1983, 1984 and so forth up to and including 2015). In each of these subsequent years the gold weight of the Chinese Gold Panda has been exactly 1 oz of pure gold.
In 2016 the China Mint changed this international standard and created a new gold panda which contains 30 grams of pure gold (.9645 oz).
So now you have essentially two groups of Chinese Gold Pandas – those struck between 1986 and 2015 which contain one pure ounce of gold and those struck in 2016 and 2017 which contain slightly less than one ounce of pure gold.
For this reason there are now two “buy” and “sell” spreads for this popular gold bullion coin. One for the Chinese Gold Panda 1 oz and another for the 2016/17 Chinese Gold Panda 30g. This page offers our live “buy” and “sell” prices for the 2017 Chinese Gold Panda 30g.
