Description


Choice winner’s medal issued for the Rome 1960 Summer Olympics. Gilt silver, 53 mm, 83 gm, by Giuseppe Cassioli. The front depicts a victorious athlete being carried by a jubilant crowd; the reverse, inscribed, "Giochi Della XVII Olimpiade Roma MCMLX," features a 'Seated Victory' with the Colosseum in the background. This beautiful specimen is missing its cast bronze olive leaf wreath bezel and chain. Overall, this is a spectacular example of a gold medal from an iconic Summer Games—the most famous gold medallist was, of course, the young boxer Cassius Clay, who finished first in the light heavyweight division.
