Pure gold is too soft, even to be used for medals.
1st place: gold, 2nd place: silver, 3rd place: bronze
Iron - the rest are metals used in olympic medals.
Different metals are Platinum. Gold. Silver, or silver-gilt, which is in fact used for Olympic “gold medals” Bronze. Pewter. Copper. Tin. Iron.
Olympic gold medals are not pure gold. Instead, they are made up of 92 percent silver, then plated with six grams of gold. Olympic silver medals are also not made out of pure silver. This is because pure silver is too soft for production. Instead, sterling silver, which is a mixture of 92.5 percent silver and 7.5 percent copper, is used. Pure bronze isn't used in the olympic bronze medals as its color is too similar to gold and could lead to confusion over which medal to present to the athlete. Copper is used in its place.
That would be Russia.
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. along with the link below... here is the web address. http://en.beijing2008.cn/67/83/article214028367.shtml
It was much more popular thousands of years ago for jewelry, but bronze jewelry is now mostly medals, like Olympic medals and such. Gold jewelry is sometimes strengthened with bronze.
The Olympic medals to be made of solid gold were awarded at the 1912 Olympic Games in Stockholm, Sweden. The onset of WWI and WWII sharply decreased the amount of gold used. At present, Olympic gold medals must be at least 92.5% silver and contain a minimum of 6 grams of gold.
As quoted from wikipedia The convention used by the IOC is to sort by the number of gold medals the athletes from a country have earned. In the event of a tie in the number of gold medals, the number of silver medals is taken into consideration, and then the number of bronze medals. If two countries have an equal number of gold, silver, and bronze medals, they are ordered in the table alphabetically by their IOC country code.
