    Hi folks,

    As a big fan of tigers (and big cats in general) I knew that I need to buy this medal as soon as I accidentally found it on eBay. There are many medals and coins with tigers, but I'm usually not so happy with one of the sides.

    Even though I'm slightly biased towards tigers, it would be hard for me to decide which side I like more. Well Pandas are cute animals, so she might win in this case.

    Features:
    Shenyang Mint / Chengdu mint
    Mintage: 800
    Material: brass
    Diameter: 80mm
    Weight: will check one day
    Designer: Liao Bo

    I believe this designer is also engraver for Valentine Pandas (heart shaped), did some part of the design for 2 Piece Lunar Monkey set with Poland Mint and did this:

    and he did some of the medals in the four famous Buddhist Mountain series medals, etc.

    Bought this medal from Frank (thincat00) and I'm super happy with his service, as always.

    I took this pictures a little bit in a hurry, so they aren't the best ones, but hopefully you still get a little bit better impression of the medal than from pictures available on internet.
