This gold coin is a sweet tribute to the giant panda, an endangered wildlife species in China.
Giant panda bears are an indigenous species in China. Today, these adorable creatures rank high on the endangered species list, with approximately just 1000 left in the wild.

Historically, these shy animals were believed to possess many mystical and magical properties according to Chinese legend. Their pelts were often worn by royalty as symbols of strength or used to prevent and protect from disease. Their black and white coloring was also considered to represent the concept of yin and yang or harmony, which was is also believed to be embodied in panda bears’ typically relaxed personalities.

Today, giant pandas are fiercely protected and severe measures have been implemented in China to protect their survival. This, as well as various conservation efforts, particularly with regards to deforestation, will hopefully work to raise the numbers of this rare population.

Mother pandas have an incubation period of 5 months and usually give birth to just one panda per pregnancy. At birth, panda cubs weigh just 140 grams and have a white pelt, with the black spots only beginning to show as they age. After about 18 months under their mother’s supervision, young pandas become independent when they are able to fend for themselves, establishing a shelter and eating up to 20 different varieties of bamboo. Extra digits on panda’s paws help them to break pieces of bamboo and once they leave their mother, pandas live very solitary lives, spending all of their time either eating or resting.

This one of a kind .9999 gold coin is in the shape of an animated panda cub with a waving paw. The Republic of Palau’s coat of arms can be found on the coin’s other side. The little panda’s happy expression makes it a great collectible and tribute to one of the world’s rarest animals - a Chinese symbol of good luck and friendship.
