#7070 - Tug Wilson's Rome 1960 Summer Olympics Gold Olympiade Medal Estimate: $8,000+

Tug Wilson’s brilliant ‘Olimpiade Medal’ issued for the Rome 1960 Summer Olympics. Gold .900 (21.6K), 105 gm (3.7 oz), 61 mm, designed by Renato Signorini (Pietro Giampaoli of Italy). The front depicts the Capitoline Wolf feeding the twins Romulus and Remus, the traditional founders of Rome, with the Olympic rings and raised text: “Giochi Della XVII Olympiade, S. P. Q. R.,” which stands for Senatus Populus Que Romanum, or the Senate and People of Rome. The reverse shows the Parthenon, an Olympic torchbearer, and the Arch of Constantine, with "Roma" embossed underneath. The edge of the medal is inscribed: “MMDCCXIII AB U. C. / MCMLX A CH. N. / MMDCCXXXVI AB IN. OLYMPIIS.” Includes the original white leather presentation case.

From the Tug Wilson Estate.
