#8134 - Athens 2004 Summer Olympics Silver Winner's Medal Estimate: $10,000+

Exquisite winner’s medal issued for women’s soccer at the Athens 2004 Summer Olympics. Silver, 60 mm, 139 gm, by Elena Votsi and Kostas Kazakos; manufactured by Efsimon. The front depicts the winged goddess of Victory soaring into the Panathinaikos Arena, with Greek characters and Olympic rings above; the reverse features the Eternal Flame of Olympia, the opening lines of Pindar's Eighth Olympic Ode, and the 2004 Summer Games logo, with the sport engraved in Greek lettering along the bottom, “ποδ?σφαιρο γυναικ?ν [Women-Football].” Completed by the original multicolored ribbon. The 2004 Athens winner’s medals replaced the long-held ‘seated Victory’ design by Giuseppe Cassioli, rectifying the mistake of using a depiction of the Roman Colosseum rather than a Greek venue. The gold medal game of the women’s football tournament consisted of a rematch between the United States and Brazil, with the former winning the initial contest 2-0 in first round action some 12 days earlier. Once again the Americans outlasted their Brazilian rivals 2-1 at the Karaiskaki Stadium in Piraeus, en route to winning their second-ever gold medal. Along with Birgit Prinz of Germany, Brazil's Cristiane led all scorers with five tournament goals. After a fourth place showing in Sydney, the Brazilian women’s team won silver in 2004, and then again in 2008 and 2012, before finally achieving a gold medal in 2016. From The Mason Dinehart Collection.
