Rare Gold First Place Winner’s Medal Barcelona 1992 Paralympic Games High Grade. A rare “gold” first place winner’s medal from the Barcelona 1992 Paralympic Games. This is a high grade example which I would judge to be in extremely fine (EF) to mint condition, but please take a good look at all my photos and form your own opinion of its grade. There is no ribbon or pouch/case. Made from Gold-plated Copper or Silver-Gilt? , Diameter 70 mm, Thickness 7 mm approx, Weight 238.7 grams, Designer Xavier Corbero. I don’t have a mintage figure for this medal but the Barcelona Paralympics featured 487 events, some of which were of course team sports. This particular example was never awarded. It was part of a collection of surplus medals from the Barcelona Olympics and Paralympics which was retained by the manufacturers after all the other medals had been distributed. The obverse design has the inscription “PARALIMPICS / BARCELONA’92” above a rectangular panel containing what I assume is its Braille equivalent. The reverse has the Barcelona Paraympic logo, an abstract of a Paralympic athlete. A mint mark the. Fabrica Nacional de Moneda y Timbre. In Madrid and the designer’s initials XC are located to the left and right hand side respectively of the ribbon hole. All my medals are guaranteed genuine.
