Every Olympics have their own medal designs and total weight may vary. There are certain requirements involved: each Olympic medal must be at least 68 mm across and 3 mm thick. The gold medals must contain at least 92.5% silver, and at least 6 grams of 24-carat gold must coat each gold medal.

The approximate weight of a medal is referenced as about 250 grams (0.25 kg).
