Each gold medal at the Tokyo 2021 Olympics contains 6 grams of gold and is worth about $810 – more than any previous sporting event.
At the Tokyo Olympics 2021, there will be about 5000 medals produced by the host country Japan to serve the awarding of high-achieving athletes.
It is known that each HCV weighs between 450 and 556 grams and is completely recycled from old smartphones and other damaged electronics.
Junichi Kawanishi, director of the Japan Badge Designers Association, is the “father” of the Tokyo Olympic medals.

Since the 1912 Olympics in Stockholm (Sweden), gold medals are no longer made entirely of gold, but mainly from silver.
According to the requirements of the International Olympic Committee, a gold medal should contain at least 6 grams of gold and about 92.5% pure silver.
Since then, this is the time when the value of the gold medals has risen to the highest.
Specifically, the value of this year’s gold medal is about 810 USD (about 18.6 million VND), while the silver medal is 462 USD (10.6 million VND), higher than recent major sports events.
Up to the present time, the value of gold medals at every Olympic Games ranges from 300 USD to 800 USD (about 6.9 to 18.4 million VND).
However, these HC panels will be sold at a very high price.
Typically, in 2012, former Ukrainian boxer Wladimir Klitschko once auctioned the gold medal he won at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics for one million dollars.
This money was transferred to the charity fund of Wladimir and his brother. However, the buyer later returned the medal to the boxer to show his respect.
