#3007 - Athens 1906 Summer Olympics Silver Winner’s Medal Estimate: $6,000+

Sought-after winner’s medal issued for the Athens 1906 Intercalated Summer Olympics. Silver, 50 mm, 58 gm, by Jules Clement Chaplain. The front depicts a relief portrait of Zeus holding Nike, the goddess of Victory, in the palm of his hand, with text along left side, “Olympia”; the reverse bears a detailed view of the Acropolis of Athens topped by the Parthenon, with raised Greek characters to upper and lower portion, “International Olympic Games in Athens, 1906.” Stamped “Argent” on the edge. The winner’s medals for the 1906 Athens Games share the same design as the Athens Olympics from 1896, with the ceremony year serving as the lone distinction. The 1906 Athens Games were considered the Olympics by the press and participants, which included 854 athletes from twenty countries, but they were never officially sanctioned by the International Olympic Committee. Only the second silver medal from the 1906 games we have ever offered, this uncommon prize boasts a stunning matte patina and is in exceptional condition. From The Mason Dinehart Collection.
