CHINA-REPUBLIC Chiang Kai Shek Allied Victory Copper Medal, UNC. This medal is sent by Chiang Kai Shek as his personal expression of appreciation to the members of the US Armed Forces who served in China. Design of the coin follows the pattern of coins used in China from three to five hundred years ago. On the original coins, there was a square hole in the center. This has been filled in, in order to carry Chinese characters on each side. On one side, there are four characters. These stand for "Allied Victory." On the reverse side, there is one character. This is the chop of the Generalissimo, and stangs for "Chiang."
