What did the London 1948 Olympic medals look like?

The 1948 Summer Olympics were held in London from July 29 1948 to August 14 1948.

The games of the XIV Olympiad consisted of 136 events.

Both the 1940 and 1944 Olympic games were cancelled due to WWII, thus the games of the XII Olympiad and the games of the XIII Olympiad never took place.

The 1940 games were scheduled to be held in Tokyo and the 1944 games were to be held in London, which they were four years later.

The 1948 games were the first Olympic games to be televised.
