The year 2016 was a landmark year for the Chinese Silver Panda program from the Chinese Mint. Not only did the coins debut with new weights measured in Grams, ditching the popularly used Troy ounces, but the program also included a first-ever release of a 150 Gram Proof Chinese Silver Panda coin.
These new 150 Gram Proof Chinese Silver Panda Coins featured the same metal content and purity, as well as the same design used for all 2016 coins. The larger move away from Troy ounces for all Silver Panda coins was said to be a move aimed at bringing the nations official bullion coin in line with the countrys use of the metric system.

Typical engravings include the weight, metal content, and purity, as well as the face value of the coin in Yuan.
The reverse of the 2017 150 Gram Proof Chinese Silver Panda includes the outer facade of the Temple of Heaven. Engravings on this side include the Mandarin-language text of “People’s Republic of China,” as well as the year of issue for the coins.
