MORE ON THE 2010 WINTER OLYMPIC MEDALS

2010 Olympic medals

I just read the article on the Olympic Medals in the 14 February 2010 issue of The E-Sylum. I thought your readers might like to visit two more sources for more first-hand info on the medals:

First is the Royal Canadian Mint's website at www.mint.ca, and click on the "Learn" tab and then on "Vancouver 2010". As the designer and maker of the medals, the Royal Canadian Mint provides lots of hi-res photos, information and a video on the making of both the Olympic and Paralympic medals.

As well, the official website for the games at www.vancouver2010.com has info, but it is not easy to find, so here are some links for your readers:

All the best from the Great White North!

Thanks! Steve also attached an article of his titled "Beauty-Quality-Pride" that will appear simultaneously in the upcoming March issues of both the Ottawa Coin Club bulletin Moneta, and the Royal Canadian Numismatic Association CN Journal. Look for it! -Editor
