The 1/2oz China Panda gold coin from 1995 is 99.9 fine and sold in the original mint-sealed packing. Different panda designs continue to be minted each year but the design of the obverse of the coin has not changed since 1992. Chinese mints do not use mintmarks but in some years there are minor variations in design, such as size of date, to identify the mint or different designer in China.
The obverse depicts the Temple of Heaven. The motif is shown with Chinese characters on the top meaning People's Republic of China. The year of issue „1995” is imprinted at the bottom.
A single panda is holding a bamboo branch. The value of 50 Yuan can be read at the right elbow of the panda. The symbols “Au, 1/2oz” and purity, “.999“ are shown on the rim above the left ear.
