The design of the medals is often reflective of the culture and tradition of the host nation. The 2022 winter games will be organized in Beijing - the capital of China. As per the Olympic committee the medals have been named “Tong Xin”.
In English, “Tong Xin” translates to “together as one”. The design features the traditional logo of the Olympics i.e. the Olympic rings in the center and is based on "Chinese ancient jade concentric circle pendants" as per the release.
A carved design walls the center of the medals and all the designs are based upon traditional Chinese patterns.
The medals are engraved with "XXIV Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022" on the front. The medals are very similar to the ones which were handed out during the 2008 summer Olympics hosted in Bejing.
The back side of the medals displays the emblem of the Beijing 2022 games in the center, with the full name of the championship engraved in Chinese in the circle surrounding the inner most circle.
