#3020 - Paris 1924 Summer Olympics Silver Winner's Medal Estimate: $7,000+

The first winner's medal to feature the Olympic rings

Choice winner's medal issued for the Paris 1924 Summer Olympics. Silver, 55 mm, 76 gm, by Andre Rivaud, Paris. The front depicts a triumphant athlete extending his hand to a fallen opponent, with the designer's name "A. Rivaud" etched below his foot, and the Olympic rings at the bottom; the reverse, inscribed, "VIIIeme Olympiade, Paris 1924," depicts a harp and various pieces of sporting equipment. Stamped "Argent" on the edge. The winner's medals for this Olympics were the first to incorporate the Olympic rings into the design. Only 304 of these attractive second-place silver medals were issued, with this being an especially fine example.
