You may recall my opinion of past Olympic medals, here are some photos (gathered from various other blogs) of the current lineup of medals to be given away in Vancouver. These are the first non-flat medals, having been specially pressed into a wavy pattern to emulate mountains and ocean waves. Teck Resources supplied the metal, which was also the first to include recycled e-waste. As I mentioned with Lillehammer’s granite design, which provided a truly one-of-a-kind medal, the Vancouver medals will sport images cropped from larger Aboriginal designs, also granting a level of uniqueness to each medal.
