The reverse features the Great Wall of China, "2016" below. A Chinese symbol of great historical importance appears framed in a circle above: the ancient Chinese armillary sphere, a device which maps the position of celestial bodies in a framework of rings. Inscribed "MOON FESTIVAL" in English and Chinese, the obverse depicts a giant panda with its young cub in a field of bamboo stalks, a large moon in the night sky above.
