Sell Your Silver 1956 Melbourne Olympics Medal

The 1956 Summer Olympics in Melbourne, Australia brought together over 3,300 athletes from 72 countries and was the first Olympics to take place in Oceania. Political tensions were on the rise during the 1956 games which led to several countries refusing to participate. At the suggestion of a letter submitted by a 17 year old young man, the Closing Ceremony of the 1956 games was the first to have all the countries march together rather than by team to symbolize world unification.

We at Nate D. Sanders Auctions sold a silver medal from the 1956 Summer Olympics for $12,500. Please see item details below:
