The gold medal is the highest ranking Olympic medal. Every Olympian aspires to obtain one of these during their career. If an Olympian succeeds in earning one, they are considered the best in the world and are crowned "Olympic champion." Their name will go down in history, and be remembered for years to come. Their national anthem will be played and their flag will be above the silver and bronze medallists'. It is the greatest honour the Olympics can offer. Minting these is the responsibility of the host city and will have their custom designs upon it.
