Description


Winner’s medal issued by the International Ice Hockey Federation for the Grenoble Winter Olympics Ice Hockey World Championship. Silvered bronze, 60 mm, 97 gm, struck by Swiss medal manufacturer Huguenin. The front depicts a goalie in net and reads, “Championnats du Monde, Worlds Championships, 1968”; the reverse reads, “Ligue Internationale de Hockey sur Glace, International Ice Hockey Federation,” with the league’s logo in the center.

Between 1920 and 1968, the Olympic hockey tournament also served as that year’s world championship for the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF); this is the IIHF silver medal awarded for the world championship held as part of the 1968 Grenoble Olympic Games. The 1968 Olympics saw the Czechoslovakia men's national ice hockey team win its second Olympic silver medal, losing out to the dominant Soviet Union team. This medal is equally as rare as the 1968 Olympic silver medal for ice hockey, awarded only to members of the second-place Czech national team.
