Rare winner’s medal issued for the London 2012 Summer Olympics. Gilt silver, 85 mm, 433 gm, by David Watkins. The front of the medal features text across the top, “XXX Olympiad London 2012,” above the winged Nike over Panathinaikon Stadium with the Acropolis in the background; the reverse features the emblem of the London Games against an abstract linear background. The purple ribbon is present but detached at the seam, with “London 2012” and the Olympic rings embroidered in white. The event, which is inscribed along the bottom edge of the medal, will be disclosed to the winning bidder. The medal exhibits some dings and scratches. Any winner’s medals from more recent Olympic Games are extremely scarce and this is one of the very first London 2012 gold medals to be publicly offered.
