Did you know that Olympic gold medals aren’t in fact 100% gold?

With hundreds of gold medals to be presented in Rio this year, think of how much gold that would require!

See the breakdown of what’s in some gold medals for the Olympics dating back to 1912 in American Bullion’s infographic!

In addition, the graphic uncovers how much each medal is actually worth in terms of gold, and how much a few specific medals were sold for (it’s a shocking, but obvious gap).

You can take a look at the infographic in it’s entirety here: Olympic Medal Value: What is a Gold Medal Worth?
