    Summer Games Atlanta 1996 Medal

    On the obverse, the traditional goddess of victory, holding a palm in her left hand and a winner’s crown in her right. A design used since the 1928 Games in Amsterdam, created by Florentine artist Giuseppe Cassioli (ITA - 1865-1942) and chosen after a competition organised by the International Olympic Committee in 1921. For these Games, the figure of victory is accompanied by the specific inscription: “XXVI OLYMPIAD ATLANTA 1996”. On the reverse, the official emblem of the 1996 Games and the ‘Quilt of Leaves’ design. For each sport the medals awarded to the athletes (not shown here) were minted with the addition of the relevant sport pictogram positioned in the centre of the ‘Quilt of Leaves’.

    Winner's medal Atlanta 1996

    The obverse comprises a design by Tuscan artist Giuseppe Cassioli. This motif can be found on the obverse of all the winner’s medals presented at the Summer Games since 1928 with the exception of three special cases: Barcelona 1992, Athens 2004 and Beijing 2008. However, it should be said that Cassioli’s design, created in 1928, has had its contours somewhat modernised here ©IOC
