Description & Analysis

Peter Anthony: At 42,243 the mintage of the 1982 1/4 oz. gold Panda is much higher than its larger siblings and it is far more common, too, As with all the 1982 Panda coins collectors immediately fell in love with the beautiful design by Shanghai artist Chen Jian. A shortage of the coins shortly after they were released sent prices zooming higher. The coin still retains a significant numismatic premium, especially in MS-69.

Although there is no denomination, the China Mint has always contended that this is a coin, not a medal. Most numismatists agree with that view today. It is not as difficult to find an MS-69 of this gold Panda as it is for its ½ oz. and 1 oz. counterparts. One potential problem is that the sealed plastic pouch contains PVC and three decades has provided plenty of time to impair a coin.

The 1982 1/4 oz. gold Panda Panda is part of three NGC Registry sets: “Gold 1/4 Ounce Panda, 1982-Date, Mint State," "Gold 1/4 Ounce Panda, 1982-Date, Mint State (Incl. Varieties)." and "Gold 1/4 Ounce Panda, 1982-Date, Mint State and Proof."
