This is an interesting example of a PF68 grade. Just above the panda's head there are two circular white spots. The larger one seems to a have tiny "moon" just to the left of it, and the smaller white spot seems to have a comet's tail swooping off to the left. The comet's tail is doubled, which means it is probably just on the plastic holder and is reflecting on the mirror finish of coin, but I'm not sure since I don't have the coin in front of me right now.

The spots are the evil white kind that conservation techniques cannot remove because they're actually in the metal surface, not just sitting on top of the metal surface. Dark colored spots are usually on top of the surface of the metal, and can be removed easily.

These spots are not very noticeable despite being on the front of the coin, right above the panda's head. You have to tilt the coin in the right light to be able to see the spots clearly. So, despite having some flaws in a prominent location, the coin still gets a PF68 grade because you must look carefully to notice them.

There are always interesting things to learn about grading. The difference between PF68 and PF69 is much easier to discern than the difference between PF69 and PF70, but if you want to try, take a look at this set of examples:
