The image of a panda holding a bamboo shoot appears on the reverse. The texture of its fur and the contrast between the black and white areas are captured in fantastic detail.

On the obverse, the recognizable Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests at Beijing's Temple of Heaven is shown from the front view.
