In 2011, this beautiful Gold 100 Yuan Panda coin, was issued by The People’s republic of China.
This coin weighing 1/4 oz, still sealed in original mint packaging
China issued its first gold coins picturing a panda design in 1982, in sizes of 1, 1/2, 1/4, and 1/10 troy oz. of 999 fine gold. Beginning in 1983 another size was added – 1/20 oz. These popular coins are issued in prooflike brilliant uncirculated quality with a different design each year. A freeze of the design was announced with the 2001 issues—and thus the 2002 pandas were identical to 2001. But collectors spoke up in behalf of annual changes, and China reverted to their original policy. There are several mints that produce these coins, including but not limited to:Beijing, Shenzhen, Shanghai and Shenyang . In certain years there are minor variations—in the size of the date, style of the temple, etc.—in the coin design that allow the originating mint to be determined.
