On the reverse of each 2016 Gold Chinese Panda is the traditional image of the Temple of Heaven. Constructed in Beijing more than 400 years ago, it was originally a place of worship for the leaders of China’s previous dynasties. Today it is a monument and gathering place for Chinese people.
The obverse of the 2016 30 Gram Gold Chinese Panda coin features a lone panda hanging out on a tree branch that extends out over a body of water. Continuing its use of simple engravings, the only markings found on this side are the coin’s face value, weight, metal content, and purity.
Starting in 2016, all Chinese Panda coins are measured and marked in Grams instead of Troy ounces. The change doesn’t impact the content of the coins, which still feature .999 fine gold. The 2016 30 Gram Gold Chinese Panda replaces the 1 oz, with the 15 Gram replacing the ¼ oz and the 8 Gram replacing the 1/10 oz coins.
