    Monetary value doesn't really mean anything to the athletes. It is that fact that they know that at that moment in time, they were the best in the world at what they do. Nobody compared to them, the medal is simply a symbol of that achievement.

    The reason for this is because these are the largest medals ever given out. It would cost way too much to make them all out of pure gold. Anyways, yeah monetary value doesn't mean shit, what counts is working your ass off for one for 4 years.

    i'm pretty sure they've been using this combination of metals in the medals for the past few olympics.

    They used to use real gold medals back in the day, though.

    The monetary value is really inaccurate, I'm sure there are people who would pay much more than 445 pounds for an Olympic gold medal.
