    Winter Games Innsbruck 1976 Medal

    The obverse depicts the emblem of the 1976 Olympic Winter Games (the same as the 1964 Games), comprising the Olympic rings and the coat of arms of the city showing the bridge on the Inn which gives the city of Innsbruck its name. For centuries, this bridge has been the link between the old town and the Hötting district. It symbolizes friendship and the people of the world coming together. The inscription “XII OLYMPISCHE WINTERSPIELE INNSBRUCK 1976” surrounds the scene. The reverse shows the Bergisel skiing area with the Alps in the background and the Olympic flame in the foreground on the right hand side.
