Description


Impressive cased presentation set of participation and commemorative medals from the Mexico City 1968 Summer Olympics, with a label on the bottom of the case attributing them to Bruce McLaren ("Bruce McLaren's Medals, presented to him at '68 Mexico GP by Pres. of Mexico"). An engraved brass plaque in Spanish affixed inside the lid reads (translated): "Remembrance of the President of the Republic Gustavo Diaz Ordaz, VII Grand Prix of Mexico, November 1968." The set features a typical square Olympic participation medal, a slightly larger commemorative medal depicting the Zocalo, two different circular commemorative Olympic medals, a 25-peso 1968 Olympics coin, and square medals honoring the Azteca, Palacio, and Alberca venues. Legendary race car driver and designer Bruce McLaren finished in second place at the 1968 Mexican Grand Prix, which took place in Mexico City a week after the Summer Games came to an end.
