Did both coins come from the same 15-coin tray? (Assuming you bought in trays).

Thanks.

Hi, the coin on the left was purchased in the UK (single) which I consider to be the regular type ie: the frosted area has a silky sheen to it. The coin on the right was purchased as one of three (all the same ) from a coin dealer in Germany and the frosted area on all three is MATT no silky finish. I wonder is it a variety or a problem with the minting process ?
thanks.

I have a 2015 with deep frosting similar to your coin on the right. I am not sure if all the 2015 silver pandas were minted that way though.

2016 silver Pandas were also produced in the Shenyang Mint.

thank you.

The mints manufacture their own dies. The differences between the mints are detectable with a microscope.

After checking with my 60X magnifier, I found some difference between S & Y mints. Beside difference frosted level of the Temple.The size  of the panda eye and the shape of mouth are different.

With the help of AM165 pictures i checked up mine:

When my eyes dont fool me my "famous" odd tray with the edged corner contains large eye and deep frosted.
The other round edges trays are large eye and less frosted.

Maybe this information could help to differentiate the trays and mint in future.  N20
