I was touched by the powerful symbolism of this medal so I ordered some as wedding gifts. It nicely integrates both Eastern and Western philosophies of love and lifelong dedication (in sickness and in health, for richer or poorer, ................... etc, till death do us part). I don't know yet if I am going to send to NGC for slabbing or leave as it is.

One side is copper while the other side is brass. The copper side has a heart shaped piece of silver between the swans.

I am no expert on this medal but from what I read I believe the duck side design was influenced by Chinese cultural considerations. Therefore they are not wood ducks. The swan side of the medal reflects Western depiction of love and commitment. I stand to be corrected!
