With a diameter of 70 mm and a thickness of 6 m, the face of the medals of the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games shows a Hellenistic figure of winged Nike (ancient Greek Goddess of Victory) and the Panathinaikos Arena, the standard design prescribed by the International Olympic Committee (IOC). While on the reverse side, the Olympic medals are inlaid with jade molded in the fashion of ancient “bi” (a flat jade piece with a circular hole in the center), with emblem of the Beijing Olympics engraved in the center of the medals. Hooks of the medals have a design similar to that of the traditional Chinese dragon-grained ‘huang” (a semi-annular jade pendant). The jade design of the medals highlights traditional Chinese values where jade is regarded as the embodiment of virtue down the ages.
