History of Gold Production in China

China has a rich and extensive history regarding gold production and trade. As early as the third millennium (BCE), gold mining became a common practice in Western China. Starting during the days of the Han Dynasty (206 BCE – 220 CE) Eastern China traded items along the Silk Road such as tea, silk, and dyes to the West in exchange for precious gold and silver. Gold coins and gold bars from China have been a hot commodity since those early days of trade.

Chinese Gold Coins

Chinese Gold Panda coins and Chinese Gold Lunar series coins are the most popular gold coins minted in China. Before 2016, the denomination for Gold Pandas ranged from 5 Yuan to 100 Yuan in multiples of 5. After 2016, the weight system changed to grams instead of troy ounces. The new denominations for gold panda coins were 20 yuan, 50 yuan, 100 yuan, 200 yuan, and 500 yuan. Starting in 1981 the Chinese Mint began minting gold, silver, and platinum coins commemorating the Chinese New Year. These Chinese Lunar Coins are a popular collector’s item. They are frequently gifted to loved ones on birthdays. Other gold coins from the Mint of China include commemorative gold coins and world expo gold coins.
