The Shanghai Mint has struck a limited edition series of "Shanghai Memory" silver and gold medals to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the establishment of the Designated Area For Stateless Refugees, commonly known as "the Shanghai Ghetto" or Hongkew Ghetto. That area in Shanghai became a temporary home for an estimated 20,000 Jewish refugees who safely escaped from the Nazi onslaught during the World War II Holocaust. This is the first time in history any China mint has ever produced numismatic items with a theme related to Jewish history.
First Panda Medal w/ Etched Serial #. Each piece has a unique serial number laser-etched into the medal, which is also the first time Shanghai Mint did that.
