These are the 2 Official Silver Coins from the Beijing 2008 Olympics. Each is 1 kilogram of pure 99.9% silver. I will not split the set up. The obverse side of one coin features two very distinct ancient Chinese sporting images on the coin: At the bottom the coin features ancient Chinese dragon boat racing, with four muscular racers paddling their way to victory aboard the boat. At the top of the coin there is a pack of horses racing against each other. The obverse side of this coin is a striking blend of Chinese culture and competitive sporting, a perfect representation of the upcoming Beijing 2008 Olympics. The obverse side of the other coin features Chinese folk sports event, tug of war and shadowboxing (taiji). The reverse side of both coins features in Chinese script the saying "Peoples Republic of China". Featured prominently in the center of the coin is the official Beijing 2008 Olympic logo, surrounded by two ancient Chinese dragons intertwining and facing the logo. The 1 Kilo Silver coins come protected in a lacquered wooden display box emblazoned with the official Beijing 2008 Olympic logo and packaged in a sturdy red cardboard protector, also featuring the official Olympic logo.
