Why care? If you`ve won an Olympic gold, you`re hardly likely to melt it down for the scrap metal value.

The original Olympic prize was a wreath. Worthless in itself, but that`s so not the point.

Just so people know, 6 grams is over .2 ounces, which is over 250 dollars in Gold. Would`ve been 350 last year.
