ميداليات أولمبياد باريس 2024

By Jordi Bou

July 16, 2024 - August 11, 2024 - تحتوي ميداليات أولمبياد باريس على أعمال حديدية من برج إيفل، وهي المرة الأولى التي تضم فيها أي مدينة مضيفة قطعاً من النصب التذكاري الوطني..

Designed by jeweller Chaumet, the 18-gram hexagon tokens, representing the shape of France, are made of iron from past refurbishments of the Tower stored for years in a warehouse whose location is secret.

The back of the medals features the Greek goddess of victory, Nike, charging forward, with the Acropolis to one side and the Eiffel Tower to the other.

Medals for the Paralympics feature a view of the Eiffel Tower from underneath, and are stamped with Paris 2024 in braille, in tribute to Frenchman Louis Braille, who invented the reading and writing system for visually impaired people.

The 5,084 medals are produced by France’s mint, the Monnaie de Paris.
