Rare 1982 Pandas

The 1982 Gold Pandas are the first year of issue, and the most rare to find in good condition. Many of these coins were used as jewelry, leaving heavy scratches, rim dents, and other damage. It also seems that the quality of the mint packaged coins is quite variable.

1982 Gold Panda Mintages
1 oz.......... 15,971
1/2 oz...... 13,339
1/4 oz...... 40,111
1/10 oz.... 75,100

As the 1st year of issue, these coins are very collectible and hard to obtain. I recent years, prices have escalated, with good quality examples of the 1oz selling for $3000 to $4000.

I try to maintain a selection of PCGS graded 1982 Pandas for sale in my ebay store. Prices vary by grade and general attractiveness of the coin. For the current selection, click here to go to my store. The current 1982 Panda listings are also shown below.
