Was the Wilson Dollar copied by the Shanghai Mint?

The US helped set up both the Manila Mint, who's opening was celebrated by the Wilson Dollar, and the Shanghai Mint. They both have similar Mint opening medals. Was one copied from the other?

I only recently came across this Shanghai Mint opening medal and think it's amazing. This specimen sold for $24,000!

Wilson Dollar:

Shanghai Mint Opening Dollar with Sun Yat-Sen, President of the Republic of China.
