The mighty gold medal from the 2006 Torino Olympics

Stunning winner's medal from the Torino 2006 Winter Olympics. Gilt silver, 474 gm, 108 mm, designed by Quatrini and minted by Ottaviani International. The front features a fluid geometric design of the emblem of the Games at the bottom; the reverse has a polished pictogram of the sport—luge—and is engraved with the event, "Men’s Single." The edge is engraved in Italian, French, and English: "XX Giochi Olimpici Invernali, XX Jeux Olympiques d'Hiver, XX Olympic Winter Games." The uniquely designed medal has a hole at the center, through which the red, gold, and fuschia ribbon is tied. Complete with its original wood-and-plastic curved display case. At the time, the Torino winner's medal was the largest ever issued.
