At long last - the wait is over!! The People's Bank of China has just released the 2012 Panda Gold Brilliant Uncirculated legal tender coins, the latest issue in this popular series that launched in 1982. Five different 99.9% pure coins are now available through Panda America to collectors who are assembling date sets, and to gold bullion buyers who expect a continuation of the gold bull market.
The 2012 Panda coins keep the traditional obverse design that has been the hallmark of this great series, featuring the Temple of Heaven in Beijing. The reverse design again features 2 playful pandas, with a field of bamboo in the background. The face value & purity level of 99.9% are also prominently displayed on the coin's reverse side.
