What medal is this and is it worth anything?
« on: April 21, 2015, 09:09:17 AM »
Hello! N25
I bought this medal on a yardsale and now I'm wondering if it's worth anything and from how long ago it is.

Kind regards, Lina.

That medal is from the National People's Congress of China. No idea when it was produced.

Welcome to the forum.

I do not know the date as well as the mintage of this medal either. However, I am very sure that this medal is one of the rare “official China Mint product”, since the national emblem and name of People’s Republic of China can only be used in coin and medal with the authorization of the People’s Bank of China. China Mint issued more than 100 medals annually in the last few years and very few can be considered as “official China Mint product” since those medals are made by Mint, but not authorized by the People’s Bank of China.

IMO, this medal was made as gift for the delegates of the People’s National Congress which has about 3000 members selected from all provinces, cities, military and minorities for a term of 5 years. The Congress meets annually. This may be the reason, this medal has no date, so that it can be given out in different years.  The pictures show the original box and medal is in a very good condition. It is a nice medal to keep.

In general, the large copper medals (>60mm in diameter) are not “Official China Mint product”.

The sealed pouch for large size copper medals is hard to identify the mint origin. They may have different sealing patterns for different size medals. Many of them are sealed by the distributor.
