Medali terbuat dari emas (perak dan perunggu) dan batu jade, menyimbolkan kejayaan dan kebaikan serta sebagai perwujudan nilai-nilai tradisional China atas etika dan kehormatan, serta kekuatan citarasa China.

Medali tersebut memiliki diameter 70milimeter dan ketebalan 6milimeter. Di bagian depan mengadopsi desain standar dari International Olympic Committee. Sedangkan di bagian belakang bertatahkan batu jade dengan logo Beijing Games terukir di bagian tengah metalnya. Gantungan medali terinspirasi dari "huang" yaitu ornamen setangah lingkaran yang biasa terdapat pada batu jade dengan dekorasi 2 naga serta "pu" yaitu tatahan pola bambu.

Bernilai seni tinggi dan elegan, Medali Beijing Olympic Games merupakan campuran kebudayaan tradisional China dengan semangat Olimpiade. Medali ini akan memberikan kehormatan tertinggi kepada pemenang - sang juara - di Olimpiade, serta sambutan dan pengakuan atas pencapaian kemenangan tersebut.

The Medal

The medal for the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games is designed with inspiration coming from "bi", China's ancient jade piece inscribed with a dragon pattern. The medals, made of gold and jade, symbolize nobility and virtue and are the embodiment of traditional Chinese values of ethics and honor, sending forth strong Chinese flavor.

The medals are 70mm in diameter and 6mm in thickness. On the front side, the medal adopts standard design prescribed by the International Olympic Committee. While on the back, the medal is inlaid with jade with the Beijing Games emblem engraved in the metal centerpiece. The design inspiration of the medal hook derives from jade "huang", a ceremonial jade piece with decoration of double dragon pattern and "Pu", the reed mat pattern.

Noble and elegant, the Beijing Olympic Games medal is a blending of traditional Chinese culture and the Olympic spirit. It gives the winners of the Games great honor and acclamation as recognition of their achievement.
