    Do any of you panda lovers see any potential upside to the 1 gram gold panda or do you think the premium is too high to justify the cost?
    2016 is the return of the gram panda since the 90s?, as well as the first year chinese coins making the weight measurement to metric format. What do you guys think?

    Yeah, their upside potential is pretty good (if you can keep their condition mint). Look at the previous 1g year prices - it will be hard to find a year that hasn't done very well.

    They make fantastic gifts too!

    Affordability is likely to determine the initial viability of this and subsequent coins in the 1g series. By the time we have had say 5 years of mintage increased numismatic premiums may kick in especially if the proportion of surviving good quality coins becomes less.

    The 1g size makes Panda gold coin collection more approachable for those with more modest means. It also makes the coin collection more portable; a ten coin sheet of 1g gold panda coins is much less heavy than the approximately same priced 2 x 15 coin trays of 30g silver panda coins. This is even more significant given the currently unsolvable white spot and haze problems of silver coins.
