What did the St. Moritz 1948 Olympic medals look like?

The 1948 Winter Olympics were held in St. Moritz from January 30 1948 to February 08 1948.

The V Olympic Winter Games consisted of 22 events.

Both the 1940 and 1944 Winter Olympic games were cancelled due to WWII.

The 1940 winter games were first awarded to Sapporo, Japan, but due to the Second Sino-Japanese War they were then awarded to St. Moritz, but were withdrawn again due to controversies between the Swiss organization team and IOC. They were finally awarded to Garmisch & Partenkirchen, Germany, only to be cancelled by WWII.

The 1944 winter games were to be held in Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy.
