  Medals 1976

The medals awarded to the winners at the Montréal Games were the responsibility of the Graphics and Design Directorate. These medals, 60 mm in diameter and 6 mm thick, show on their face the design by Giuseppe Cassioli for the Amsterdam Games in 1928. Victory, Fraternity, and Universality are the dominant symbols. The only modifications made were of the number of the Olympiad, the name of the host city, and the date.

The name of the sport appears on the rim. On the reverse, in an intentionally uncluttered style, appears the victor's laurel wreath of the ancient Games and the emblem of the 1976 Olympic Games.
