So far there has been 2 events in which there has been a tie for medals.

2 Gold medals in Women's Downhill and 2 bronze medals in Men's Super-G

When they mint the medals, do they make any extras?

Since the medals have the name of the event engraved on the medal

I assume one get the actual medal, and the other would get a blank until the medal has been engraved.

Yes I read somewhere they make 48 extra medals without engravings, which is held at a secret place somewhere in Sochi. If hugely need to use an extra medal, it will take up to 15 hours to engrave.

The remainder are sent to the Olympic Museum.
