After my daughter saw so many rowing medals won the other day, one of the winners let her hold his (or perhaps her) gold medal. I can officially announce that an Olympic gold medal is "surprisingly heavy".

Personally, I suspect that how surprising it is depends on how familiar you are with the densities of precious metals. (The gold medal is principally silver, apparently.)

I bet it was a "his"!

I'm still hoarding Krugerrands.
And I can assure you they are heavy!

Depending on exactly how many you're hoarding, Andra, will you marry me?
