I found these pictures of Xiequyuan in antique finish. Cannot find pictures of brass or regular silver ones. Pricing info is not available at the moment. Saw an asking price of $1300 for a PF70 regular silver Xiequyuan. But it is negotiable.

A beautiful copper piece

Not sure yet. The plastic model is with Shanghai Mint now. They are still scheduling its minting.

I saw the plastic model for copper. Seems the coin is in the pipeline and design is firm

The pattern strikes of the Summer Resort have been minted by Shanghai Mint. Please see the pictures below, which are provided by Shanghai Mint (unofficially). The yellow one is brass, not gold.

In NGC's Chinese Medals Census, they have two categories for the Brass Classic Gardens-Old Summer Palace ("Yuan Ming Yuan")

(2014) CLASSIC GARDENS - 40mm OLD SUMMER PALACE

There is PFUC and PFMA.

Then, I see in the NGC entry for 2014 XIE QU, the Brass is PFMA. There is only one category of Brass for the 2014 XIE QU.

If I then look at Frank's article, for the Old Summer Palace there is both Brass (Proof) and Brass (Stained)

Does anyone know if the NGC 2014 Old Summer Palace PFMA is the stained or unstained version?

Frank, Do you know if there is going to be a Brass (Stained) version of the Imperial Summer Resort medals?

Oops, I meant to ask about Brass Colorized. Its listed in that section but no number is noted.
