Shanghai Mint Panda medal commemorating the 70th anniversary of the shelter of more than 18,000 European Jewish refugees in Shanghai during World War II.  Officially known as the "Designated area for stateless refugees", and also know as the "Shanghai Ghetto" or "Hongkew Ghetto".  The design of the medal represents the hospitality and humanitarianism of the Chinese people who offered the Jews refuge during the war.

The commemorative medals are a very unique and groundbreaking issue from the Shanghai Mint.  These medals have a number of important characteristics that will make them very desirable to collectors.

* First Panda medals minted with laser etched serial number
* First Chinese numismatic piece with a Jewish theme.
* Extremely low number of pieces produced
* Designed by famed mint designer Rocky Zhao with his father, legendary engraver Qiming Zhao
