The Beijing 2008 Olympic Games are less than 50 days away, and Olympic Fever is reaching its peak! In anticipation of the upcoming Olympics, the U.S. Olympic Committee has authorized the release of an impressive and large 1-Kilogram Silver Medal in support of the U.S. Olympic Team's effort in Beijing. Available exclusively through Panda America, these Medals have been minted and approved by the U.S.O.C. and all bear the official logo of the U.S. Olympic Team. Made of 99.9% pure silver, this massive 1-Kilo medal features a fierce and detailed depiction of an animal commonly associated with China - the Dragon! The Medal features a Dragon with its claws outreached and racing from the right to the left side of the Medal, with the year 2008 underneath. The Official Olympic Rings and Logo for the U.S. Olympic Team in Beijing are presented to the right of the Dragon. An extremely low mintage of only 888 pieces have been minted - a number chosen due to the unique and special connotation that the number "8" has in Chinese culture.
