Rian Song Na, Luang Phor Chaem, Wat Donyaihom, Nakhon Pathom, B.E.2516
In B.E.2516, a batch of medal was created by Wat Donyaihom showing Luang Phor Ngern in front and Luang Phor Chaem at the back. This batch of medals was known as Rian Song Na (face on both sides) and was created in commemoration of Luang Phor Chaem's monkhood title promotion. The first time when this medal was created, there were 2 materials used, namely Nur Ngern (silver) 500 pieces and Nur Thong Daeng Rom Dum (fumigated black) 20,000 pieces. There were the words "Ngan Chalong Somnasak" at the back with the Thai numeral "1" on Luang Phor Chaem's body behind.

However, there was a second time where this medal was created not long after. The difference is that instead of fumigating black for the Nur Thong Daeng pieces, they were not fumigated and were in their original reddish brown colour. The front mould is the same but the back mould has changed, without the words "Ngan Chalong Somnasak" (monkhood title promotion) and the Thai numeral "1" on Luang Phor Chaem's body. This later batch of medals created were actually lighter than pieces created during the first time as the copper surface was not fumigated in black.
In actual fact, both batches were made in the same year and Luang Phor Ngern was also involved in the consecration ceremony, which was common before he passed away. The piece shown above is Nur Thong Daeng but was originally gold-plated from the temple.
