In 2016, to better appeal to international investors and collectors, the sizes of the coins were changed from troy ounces to grams. Although not exact conversions, the new sizes are the closest metric equivalent to ounces. These sizes now include: 30 grams, 150 grams and 1 kilo. Previous years also included 1/2 oz and 12 oz coins.
The Chinese Silver Panda is among the few bullion coins to change its design annually, with one exception. In 2001, a freeze of the design was announced, so coins produced in 2001 and 2002 had identical designs. However, after customer protest, China reverted back to its original policy and in 2003 the coin had a new design. The reverse of the coin always features at least one panda usually in its natural habitat. Since its issuance, the obverse of the coin has featured the iconic Temple of Heaven in Beijing.
After construction began in 1406 under the order of the Yongle Emperor, the Temple of Heaven was completed in 1420. The temple was built so the emperor could pray and make sacrifices to Heaven for a rich and fruitful harvest. Just as the temple itself is beautiful, so too is its symbolism steeped in the rich tradition of ancient Chinese Heaven worship. The Temple of Heaven is divided into two sections by two walls that enclose the temple. The northern half is circular in shape to represent Heaven, while the southern end of the temple is rectangular, symbolizing Earth. The Hall of Prayer inside the temple has four inner, twelve middle and twelve outer pillars that represent the four seasons, twelve months and twelve traditional hours respectively. There are four main dragon-shaped support beams that represent the four seasons and twelve internal pillars that symbolize the lunar months. The dark blue roof tiles of the temple represent the heavens and the Seven-Star Stone Group is symbolic of the seven peaks of Taishan Mountain, a place of worship for the classical Chinese practice of Heaven worship. In 1998, the Temple of Heaven was declared to be a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and was praised as “a masterpiece of architecture… [that] had a profound influence on architecture and planning in the Far East for many centuries.”

Enjoy the Distinctive Features of the Annual Gold Panda CoinThe Chinese Gold Panda is released with a new design every year by the Peoples' Republic of China. The only exceptions to this are the 2001 Gold Panda and 2002 Gold Panda, which are the same. China froze the design during these years with the intention of transitioning to a constant design. However, the pushback from collectors led China to reverse their decision and resume with unique annual designs.
The obverse of the coin always features the Temple of Heaven in Beijing. The top reads "Zhonghua Renmin Gonghegu" in Chinese characters. This translates to "Peoples' Republic of China." The year is noted along the bottom.
The reverse of the China Panda Gold Coin is where the piece's unique design is featured. The coin features at least one panda every year. However, the positioning, placement and style of the panda change. The 2016 coin features a single panda holding a tree branch, with a bamboo forest in the background.
