I suspect this is gilt brass, and from the hands of Feng Yunming. The silver medal of Sun Yat-Sen below is definitely Feng's work. it is well recorded. I also have a gilt one with the same obverse design. These gilt medals do resemble the silver one.

Has anyone found anymore of these 4 sets or individual medals by Feng Yunming?      IF so, please post or contact me or Fwang....   All 4 are very rare if not extremely rare.     Much more rare then the silver 12 pc Archaeological set.....

The Souvenir for Chinese Excavating gilt brass set now has 4 sets plus 5/6 of a set w/ no box.     Prices are up so maybe more will come to market?      I asked a dealer/collector in China and he owns zero.     Fwang is right again, these tourist medals were sold to tourists and shipped overseas.        Early year unknown medals by early year artists should have very big potential.     (do i dare say explosive potential when a publication comes out?).     

Ebay 152787812835     Rhino                 $100
         382285519457    Kneeling Soldier  $35
         382282848495    Bird w/ ring        $100.11
          152795989912   Creature             $102.61
          382290068409   Elephant             $102.61

Missing Horse w/ rider.    Some are in not good condition, but so rare it may not matter much......Ebay photos....

Higher prices has brought 4 more medals to ebay 282753451757   photos off ebay below....

Fwang, regardless of box, the above gilt brass look to be the same as Feng's Archaeological 12 pc silver set.    Could these have been struck first before the silver?....
The photos below of new ebay listing have words  "The Souvenir for Chinese Excavation" as noted on box.     Maybe these are the real Souvenirs and the above are gilt brass Archaeological set.....

It is possible that the silver set recycled the designs of the gilt medals.

From the feedback i get, these gilt brass, aluminum, etc...  Feng medals are much more rare than his Archaeological 12 pc silver set or his other total 5 silver medal sets.       Not many of these in China so they were shipped overseas.   
I think the Archaeological silver set was struck in brass first but zero information on them as usual.       It would be good to own both silver and gilt brass Archaeological set.
There are some dealers/collectors in China looking into these medals.    Wish some China Mint people/NGC/PCGS/any collector would study them too and hopefully they are........
