    Winner's medal Los Angeles 1984

    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 3 special cases: Barcelona 1992, Athens 2004 and Beijing 2008. On all these medals, only the inscription differs, which is engraved with the edition of the Games to which it is linked. Here, for example, we can read the words: “XXIII / Olympiad / Los Angeles / 1984” ©IOC
