Why gold is not gold, and bronze is worth less than a petrol station sandwich | London Spy - Yahoo! Eurosport UK

Why gold is not gold, and bronze is worth less than a petrol station sandwich | London Spy - Yahoo! Eurosport UK:

Interesting read.. money can't buy the £3 worth of the Bronze medal. ;-)



"But the bronze medals - including the one won by Rebecca Adlington in the 400m freestyle on Sunday night - are worth less than £3.
The gold medals, ironically, are barely gold at all: they are, in fact, 92.5 per cent silver, with just one per cent gold and the rest copper. Their basic value is £410.
