Vancouver's Medals Just Ugly?


Recommended Posts

thanks ken for the clarification!!!

but then it is impossible what Onetimeonly had said...

Well, this is what they said on NBC's, Today Show, if I recall that correctly as my source.

They stack together like how pringles fit together and stack one on top of the other.

If they're each unique in their bends and curves, this would be impossible. Either you heard wrong or NBC is wrong.

The bends are the same between all medals. It was the same process.

And they weren't punched out of a single sheet but were formed from rectangular blanks that were cut to shape.

The gold medal and silver medal have the same blank, both were pressed and than plated with either gold or silver. The silver is pure, the bronze is a pure copper-bronze. Compared to a more tin bronze that was used for the last couple of medals.

The markings are laser etched based on a whole design.

The value of a gold is about 600 dollars, the silver is about 350 and the bronze is about 150.
