One of the very few unrealized designs from China.

It looks good. It's in the 'faux naif' style, which works well for subjects about children.

It's rather small - do you have a larger image? But we still can see the design.

Sadly i do not have a bigger picture / scan . I have been trying for months to get anything from china, but it is near impossible.
The original one was rejected because it was not political correct not to have a boy and a girl working together.

But i am still working on China, so maybe in the future there will be more

I see. Well, it is a triumph to get any unrealised design from China. Well done!  8)

There's more than the boy going on. The girl on the design is in traditional, pyjama-style clothes and traditional shoes. On the coin, the clothes and shoes are "modern", i.e. Western style. Note also that the boys was tasked with the heavy work, the digging, while the girl is nurturing the plant. The symbolism is "family", while the design can be explained in multiple ways. Interesting.
