See the Olympic Medals at the British Museum

If you've wondered what the Olympic medals actually look like, and thought that whilst you'd like to you'll never get to see one yourself, then help is at hand, as the British Museum has a few of them they'll let you look at.

We are told that the display will explain the story of the production of the medals for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, starting with metal mining by [metal mining company] through the designs by David Watkins and Lin Cheung and onto their production by the Royal Mint.

It's all on display in Room 37 until September, though judging by your author's experiences this week, this could be the quietest time to go. For more, see http://www.britishmuseum.org/whats_on/exhibitions/london_2012_games_medals.aspx
