Description


Desirable winner's medal issued for the Barcelona 1992 Summer Olympics. Silver, 75 mm, 269 gm, by Xavier Corbero; manufactured by Fábrica Nacional de Moneda y Timbre. The front depicts a seated Victory in Modernist style holding a winner’s crown and palm branch with Olympic rings and raised text: “XXV, Olimpiada Barcelona, 1992”; and the reverse featuring the Games logo of a stylized man leaping over the Olympic rings. Includes its original ribbon with Olympic colors, as well as a silver medal winner's pin, marked "16810" on the back, with accompanying black vinyl presentation pouch made by Bertoni of Milan. The consignor notes that this medal was awarded to a member of the Cuban men's fencing team for their second-place finish in team foil, but no documentation exists.

The 1992 Summer Olympics were the last competition to be staged in the same year as the Winter Olympics, and the first summer games since the end of the Cold War. In the wake of the Soviet Union’s dissolution in 1991, the Baltic nations of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania sent their own teams for the first time since 1936, with the twelve other former Soviet republics competing as the Unified Team, a collective that led the Olympiad with a total of 112 medals. An immensely attractive second place prize that represents only the second winner’s medal we have offered from the historic XXV Olympiad. From The Mason Dinehart Collection.
