They will be awarding medals for a total of 86 events. So, 3 medals time 86 events equals 258 total medals. But, many events have multiple winners-think hockey, 4 man bobsled, curling, and pairs figure skating for instance. All of the participants on the top three teams get medals. All told, 915 medals were made (305 of each gold, silver and bronze) but I am not sure that they all get distributed (they might make extra in case of a tie)...
In around 1800-1900, winners' medals were in fact silver. Sorry, I don't know if it's still the same now. found at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silver_medal
Gold and silver medals are 92.5% silver.Gold medals must be plated with at least 6 grams of gold.
