1982 Gold Plated Volleyball medals? Info request.
« on: May 28, 2013, 11:54:54 PM »
I came across a shop that had a gold plated zodiac set of China medals.
The shop also had a set of what looked like four volleyball medals from 1982.
They were gold plated (guessing brass).
Each had an individual plastic slab with embossed silver or gold letters indicating they were China mint products.
All four pieces were dated 1982 and two had volleyball trophies on the reverse while one had double dragons.
Obverse of the medals featured both male and female volleyball players.
I can't find this set anywhere....
Does anyone have info on them; mintage, history, value etc...?

Thanks,
PH

Fwang2450,
That is it! +1
There are four different versions of them and one looked like this.
What else can you tell me about it, anything?

This one was produced by Shenyang Mint to commemorate the victory of the Chinese female volleyball team at the 9th International Women's Volleyball Championship in Peru, with all the team members engraved on the medal. This is a gold plated version, but there is at least another brass version, which is considered rarer. The mintage is unknown. If you find a whole set, that would be very interesting because I knew this medal, but had never heard of a set, especially with men on the medal.

The following two books have pictures of all medals minted by Shenyang Mint. The first book covers all medals from 1979 to 1996 and second book covers from 1997 to 2001.

Thanks to RAREMEDAL for his input. I only read somewhere that the gold plated verion was worse in quality in engraving: lacking of details and bad Chinese characters. This is the first time that an expert has made it clear that it is fake.
