#8489 - Munich 1972 Summer Olympics Gold Winner’s Medal with Box Estimate: $15,000+

Unawarded gold medal from the Munich 1972 Summer Olympics

Highly sought-after unawarded winner's medal issued for the Munich 1972 Summer Olympics. Gilt silver, 66 mm, 159 gm (without chain) or 210 gm (with chain), by Gerhard Marcks; manufactured by the Bavarian Mint. The front is inscribed, “XX. Olympiade Munchen 1972,” and depicts the 'Seated Victory' with the Colosseum in the background; the reverse portrays the mythological twins Castor and Pollux, the patrons of competitive sport and friendship, with the artist's monogram below. Exhibits some tarnishing along the rim. Complete with its original golden chain, hinged plastic presentation box, and cardboard slipcover. This was the first winner's medal since 1928 to feature a new design on the reverse, replacing the traditional depiction of a victorious athlete carried by a jubilant crowd. A handsome and well-preserved example of this appealing medal.
