Description

Rare 1976 gold medal for ice hockey, won by the USSR

Winner’s medal issued for the Innsbruck 1976 Winter Olympics. Gilt silver, 72 mm, 164 gm, by M. Coufal, Vienna. The front, inscribed, “Olympische Winterspiele XII, Innsbruck 1976,” features the Innsbruck Olympic emblem; the reverse identifies the sport as hockey, “Eishockey,” and portrays the Bergisel ski jump with the Alps in the background. Stamped “A925” on the edge. Complete with original red-and-white ribbon. The Soviet Union won the gold medal in ice hockey for the fourth straight Olympics as one of the most dominant teams of all-time. This attractive gold medal is one of only 71 issued at the Innsbruck Olympic Games, making it quite rare, and as an example awarded for ice hockey—one of the most popular winter sports—it is of the utmost desirability.
