Meaning of Medal

What is Medal:

Medal is a generally round badge made of a more or less valuable metal to represent a decoration for participation in an event.

Medal comes from the Italian word medaglia, which, in turn, derives from Latin words that mean "currency", that is, a round metal disk with an associated value, therefore, valuable or old.

Medal is synonymous with disc, award, coin, honor or decoration.

The medals are decorations for any type of event. A medal of honor, for example, is the highest award for merit awarded by the United States Armed Forces, while the Olympic medals are the award received by the best athletes in each sporting competition at the Olympic Games.
