BEIJING, Sept. 20 -- The "Shenzhou-7 souvenir jade medals" were unveiled to the public at a press conference held at the China Millennium Monument in Beijing on Friday.

Designed by the China Arts and Crafts Society, the medals are to commemorate the launch of the Shenzhou-7 spacecraft, which is scheduled to take off on Sept. 25.

The three medals are all made from jade and gold, and feature a "China Aerospace" logo in the center.

The souvenir medals will be formally released on Sept. 25.
