Rare Pierre de Coubertin plaquette presented by the International Olympic Committee in honor of the 20th anniversary of the reestablishment of the Olympic Games. Bronze, 51 mm x 70 mm, 94 gm, by Heinrich Kautsch. The front depicts Coubertin in a bust-length profile pose above a tablet with raised text, “A Pierre de Coubertin, XX Anniversaire du Retablissement des Olympiades, Le Comite International Olympique”; the reverse shows the goddess Victory holding a laurel branch over a legend listing several IOC Congress meetings and their subsequent Olympic Games, which concludes with “Lausanne 1913, Paris 1914, Berlin 1916.” Stamped “Bronze” on an edge. Berlin was selected as the host city during the 14th IOC Session in Stockholm on July 4, 1912, but the 1916 Summer Olympics were eventually canceled due to the outbreak of World War I.
