The World Platinum Investment Council are proud to partner with the Athletics World Cup to provide Platinum Team Winners Medals for the winning nation alongside a unique and first of its kind Platinum Trophy as well as Platinum Captain’s badges for each of the nation’s female captains.
The ceremonial gifting of precious metals to athletes is one of the most widely established and recognised sporting rituals in the world; the more outstanding the sporting achievement, the more rare and beautiful the metal (bronze, silver, gold). However, gold is NOT the rarest NOR the most prestigious precious metal…platinum is!
Platinum is 30 times rarer than gold, valued and unique. It is a store of value, the premier jewellery metal, an attractive investment proposition and powering technological advancements and innovation in a diverse range of fields, including medicine and clean energy.
Members of the winning team will be presented with Platinum Team Winners’ Medal with an approximate worth of fifteen hundred pounds each in raw material and manufacturing costs alone and an innovative design featuring a removable solid Platinum Winners Pin.
At the climax of the event, the winning team will also lift The Platinum Trophy. Worth over three hundred thousand pounds, is believed to be the first of its kind and the most valuable global sporting trophy ever made.
