Hi Guys,
Looking to see if I can get extra information about this medallion. I have had it now for about 6 years after purchasing it from a flea market. I believe the medallion was to commemorate the listing of Ping An, a large medical insurance company, on the Stock Exchange in 2007. However, I have never been able to confirm this or even find another for sale, etc. Any help in just getting a true reason for its manufacture a true translation, although I have a basic idea, and lastly if anyone has ever come across a specimen or seen one online, other than by myself. Thanks all in advance.

Ping An Insurance (Group) Co., Ltd. of China
Company commissioned Shanghai Laofengxiang Co., Ltd. to produce "China Ping An A Share Success E Market Commemorative" Silver Medal [...unintelligible...] diameter 40mm, weight 1 ounce, fineness 999 silver. Product meets quality standard.

That's what Google translate gave from the COA. Sounds like it's a private minted silver round. I expect it likely sells for the same as any other art round would, spot plus maybe a bit for it being a pretty round.

The Ping An Insurance Group had its IPO in 2007; the 601318 seen on the medal is its ID on the Shanghai Stock Exchange. I agree with you that the medal you have appears to be a commemorative for the company going public / being listed.

I haven't seen one before, but I haven't been looking - I don't collect corporate medals from China. Chinese numismatics has grown in popularity over the last decade+, so there might be an active market for the piece among such collectors - this would likely drive its selling price to $50 USD or beyond. Outside of this group, however, I expect it would sell for $30 to $40 USD.
