    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: "XXIV Olympiad Seoul 1988". On the reverse, a dove, the symbol of peace, soaring up, holding a laurel branch in its mouth, and the Games emblem for Seoul composed of three Taeguk patterns from the Korean national flag and the five Olympic rings.
