Description


Winner's medal issued for the Stockholm 1912 Olympics. Bronze, 33 mm, 19 gm, by Erik Lindberg and Bertram Mackennal. The front depicts a victorious athlete with palm branch being crowned with a laurel wreath by two seated females; the reverse, encircled with the text, "Olympiska Spelen I Stockholm," features a herald proclaiming the opening of the Olympic Games, with a bust of Ling, the founder of Swedish gymnastics, in the background. The front of the medal, designed by Mackennel, was originally used on the winner's medals for the 1908 London Olympics. Less than three hundred of these bronze medals were issued and awarded to all third place winners, making them quite scarce today. A wonderful example of this sought-after Olympic medal.
