Medal standardization

Before the formal formulation of the 1978 Olympic Games regulations, no specific regulations were made on the production of medals. According to the Olympic regulations formulated in 1978, the diameter of Olympic medals must not be less than 60 mm and the thickness must not be less than 3 mm. gold and silver medals must be made of 92.5% pure silver, and gold medals must be plated with gold at least 6 grams. The design and production of Olympic medals have always been the responsibility of the organizing committee of the host city, and neither the International Olympic Committee nor the National Olympic Committee participates.

When the first modern Olympic Games were held in Greece in 1896, only the first and second place winners could get medals. The champion got a silver medal and the runner-up got a bronze medal. In addition, the champion olive branch crown was awarded, and the runner-up was the laurel branch crown. The diameter of the Olympic medals is 50 mm. The Paris Olympic Games in 1900 is the only Olympic Games that does not award medals so far. The prizes of the champions are valuable works of art. For the next 6 Olympic Games, the medals were individually designed and produced by the organizing committee, with different shapes.

A regulation was passed in 1909 to standardize the design of the front of the medal. The diameter of the medal ranges from 30 mm (London in 1908) to 60 mm (Antwerp in 1920). In 1928, Italian artist Giuseppe Casioli's design symbolizing victory. Since 1972, Cassioli’s design has been used on the front of the medal, and the organizing committee has added its own design on the back. The 1984 Summer Olympics medals were designed by Los Angeles Zuli for the Amsterdam Olympics. The medal pattern has been in use today. Both sides of the medal from 1928 to 1968 were designed by the artist Du Stemmer hired by the Cassie Committee, with a diameter of 60 mm and a thickness of 4 mm. The champion's gold medal contains 6.5 grams of 24K gold. The medals are placed in small boxes of blue velvet to prevent damage

Other rewards

In addition to awarding medals to winning players, other awards to players have also changed and developed over time. For example, in the 1936 Berlin Summer Olympics, in addition to the usual medals, the organizing committee followed the method of ancient Rome and awarded the champions a crown made of oak leaves. In addition, it also awarded a small oak tree for them to take home. Planted in a place of their own choice.
