The 2006 Pandas shows a mother Panda seated next to her cub eating bamboo. It was designed at the Shenyang Mint. The 2006 100 Yuan 1/4 oz. gold Panda has a reported mintage of 28,500. Once again there are far fewer than this many available today and it sells for a premium over "common date" coins.
The frosted areas of this coin have a creamy luster that is both beautiful and delicate. There are several areas, though, that easily show rub or wear: the body of the adult Panda and the heads of both bears as well as the fields. Most examples graded so far are either MS-69 or MS-70.
