Watching and betting on the Olympics you may be wondering if those gold medals are all gold? Well they’re not but rather gold plated over silver. The Gold medals have approximately 6 grams of gold plating which is equal to 0.211644 ounces of gold. At todays spot price according to Monex.com of $1,814 that makes an Olympic gold medal worth $383.92 in gold.
Of course if you try to buy an official gold medal the price will be much higher as is the case when buying other sports memorabilia or gold super bowl rings.
