Thanks for the question! You likely have a bronze medal made by the U.S. Mint after the gold medal that was presented in 1960. These can often look like gold at first glance. These sell - in original boxes - for $30 to $50, see: https://www.ebay.com/i/261710375836?chn=ps&dispItem=1 since the original is in a museum.

Again, thank you! Let me know if I can be of further help and please rate my professionalism using the 5-star system.

Hello! Following-up because I saw you reviewed the answer I prepared for you but you elected not to rate it. Is there any additional information that I can provide?

Rating using the 5-star system is the only way that JustAnswer recognizes experts and it closes the question. It does not cost you anything additional.

Again, thank you!
