Vancouver 2010 Olympic Medals

I saw this during Olympic coverage the other day and I thought I'd share it with my F-list who are watching the Olympics. Each on of the 615 medals being handed out at the 2010 Olympics is "one of a kind" and if you lay them all down in a specific order they would from an original piece of First Nations artwork. The Canadian Mint took the artwork and literally sliced it up into 615 pieces so that every athletes individual accomplishment would be honored by and a unique medal. So now the athletes can take their medals to the Canadian Mint and find out which part of the art their medal is part of. What a great idea!  FYI they used another piece of artwork for the Paralympics medals as well.
