    Hi folks,

    I don't own this medal (and probably never will), I found it accidentally on TaoBao. All info I have it's copied (translated with Chrome) from the website:

    Comparing high relief of Chinese medals with other medals it's like comparing tits of Pamela Anderson with chest of Di Caprio or smth.:)

    That's a very cool medal!

    Being that it's cast, I'm assuming the reverse is flat. I think most of us Chinese medal lovers do like 2-sided medals and maybe not so keen on 1-sided medals.

    It is new trend in China for using vase making technique to make medal instead of striking and casting
