  • What is the design of the Beijing 2022 medals?

    The Beijing 2022 medals, called "Tong Xin" ("Together we are one") consist of five circles and a center. This design is inspired by ancient Chinese jade pendants.

    The shape of the gold, silver and bronze medals is reminiscent of the jade encrusted medals of the 2008 Summer Games and emphasizes the fact that Beijing is the first city to host both the summer and winter editions of the Olympic Games.

    The Olympic rings are engraved in the center of the front face of the medal, with the words "XXIV Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022" inscribed around the center, surrounded by patterns of snow, ice and clouds. These designs are based on traditional Chinese patterns. In the center of the reverse side of the medal is the emblem of the Beijing 2022 Olympic Winter Games as well as the inscription "Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022" in Chinese around the Olympic symbol.

    The sporting discipline is also inscribed on the reverse of each medal on the ring furthest from the center.
