In 2016, the Chinese Mint transitioned the Gold Pandas from weights of 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/10 oz, and 1/20 oz to Grams, using the following options, respectively: 30 Grams, 15 Grams, 8 Grams, 3 Grams, 1 Gram. The change resulted in small changes to the total weight in Grams and the diameter of most coins. For example, these 30 Gram coins had a total weight of 31.103 Grams and a diameter of 32.05 MM when issued with One Troy ounce of gold. The switch to 30 Grams shrunk the total weight to that even mark, with a new gold weight of .9645 Troy ounces and a diameter of 32 MM.

On the reverse face of 2021 Gold Chinese Pandas is the new design of two Giant Pandas. The depiction shows a young Giant Panda cub as it climbs up the trunk of a tree. Its mother is shown nearby standing in her hind legs as she offers support to her curious young cub by extending a paw behind it as it climbs.
