On the back is the motif of the panda, which is a national symbol in China. Every year the image of the panda changes which make it interesting as a collector's coin. The 2018 edition depicts a large panda eating bamboo leaves.
In his right paw he holds a single bamboo branch with several leaves. Above the motif, the fine weight in grams, the element symbol for gold "Au" and the fineness "999" on a pattern of bamboo leaves can be seen. At the bottom of the coin, the denomination of the coin in the Chinese yuan denomination is shown on the same pattern.
In China, the possession of gold was banned in 1949. All gold had to be sold to the Chinese People's Bank (except gold jewelry). On 1 September 1982, ownership of gold for private individuals was allowed again.
Inspired by increased demand for gold on the world market and the countries high gold reserves, China decided to release its own bullion coin. In 1982 the Chinese Mint launched the Panda Gold coin series in four different coin weights: 1oz, 1/2oz, 1/4oz, 1/10oz.
