1982 Panda 100 Yuan 1 ounce Gold Panda, NGC MS68. Condition Rarity.
The 1982 1 oz. gold Panda is one of several Key Dates in the Panda Gold Coin series. Being the first year of issue, its a very popular, much sought-after coin, and exceedingly rare due its low mintage.
Only 13,532 1 ounce gold pandas were minted and many were removed from their original mint packaging subsequently mishandled. Even those that remained in their original mint packaging are commonly seen with minor hairlines and contact marks, haze and spots which negatively affect their eye appeal and grade. As such is is very difficult to find one in Mint State 69.
