The Olympic medals are designed especially for each individual Olympic Games by the host city's organizing committee. Each medal must be at least three millimeters thick and 60 millimeters in diameter. Also, the gold and silver Olympic medals must be made out of 92.5 percent silver, with the gold medal covered in six grams of gold. info taken from: http://history1900s.about.com/od/greateventsofthecentury/a/olympicfacts.htm
The 2008 Beijing Olympic Medals are made of Gold, Silver, Bronze and Jade. I attached a link with the official website of the games.
The IOC has strict stipulation on the Olympic medals' material, identification, weight, size and drawing. The medals for the champion and the runner-up are made of pure silver, and the champion's medal must be plated with gold weighing not less than six grams each. For the first time jade is used for the Olympic medals.
