As is tradition, the Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests features on the obverse. The building, which is located in the Chinese capital's Temple of Heaven, serves as a stunning example of traditional Chinese architecture. The circular structure consists of three tiers and stands atop an elevated platform, up to which stars lead from the holder. A rim frame encircling the edifice bears two inscriptions, "People's Republic of China," which is in Chinese characters at the top, and the date, "2020,' at the bottom.
Song Lina, a resident of northern China who has been studying Pandas for years, designed the reverse. It features a baby panda seated on the ground facing the holder. He is feeding himself bamboo leaves with his left front paw while grabbing more leaves from the tree above with his right one. The face value of the coin is inscribed to the left, while its weight and purity, "30 G AU .999," are inscribed along the rim above his head.
