Winner’s medal issued for canoeing at the Seoul 1988 Summer Olympics. Bronze, 61 mm, 125 gm, by the Korea Security Printing and Minting Corporation. The front features the traditional medal design by Giuseppe Cassioli of a ‘Seated Victory’ with the Colosseum in the background, and raised lettering, “XXIV Olympiad, Seoul, 1988”; the reverse features a sleek modern design by the Seoul Organizing Committee portraying a soaring dove of peace with a laurel branch in its beak, with the Seoul Olympic emblem above. Inscribed on the edge with the name of the event, “Canoeing Women Kayak Fours 500M.” Complete with its original ultramarine, red, orange, and white ribbon, and its purple velvet presentation case. A gorgeous winner’s medal awarded to a member of Bulgaria’s four-woman kayak team that earned a third place finish in the 500-meter race; two athletes from this Bulgarian team won additional medals at the Seoul Summer Games—Vanja Gesheva won gold in the K-1 500 meter, and then a silver medal in the K-2 500 meter with teammate Diana Paliiska. Only the second 1988 Seoul winner's medal that we have offered. From The Mason Dinehart Collection.
