|1948 Olympic Gold Medal|
We believe this is an official gold medal, but are in process of trying to verify this.
A naked male athlete kneeling to the right on his right knee, holding the flaming Olympic torch in his left hand, with the legend:
CITIVS ALTIVS FORTIVS (or CITIUS ALTIUS FORTIUS) as the U and V can be interchanged in Latin.
In the exergue is the engravers name EMIL WIEDERKEHR
The reverse features the five Olympic rings across the middle, with a sprig of laurel behind it, and a B (Bern) mintmark below. The legend reads:
V ES JEUX OLYMPIQUES D'HIVER ST. MORITZ 1948
|Gold (22 ct.)||33.10||27.0552||0.7974|
We contacted the Swiss Mint to gain certain information regarding this medallion and were very pleased to receive a reply within 24 hours!
