Copper + tin = bronze
While bronze was a common choice in ancient times for both weapons and coins, it has also more recently become an indispensable material for all renowned medalists with a bright talent...
From the Renaissance to the present day, far from occupying third place in their hearts, artists have awarded bronze an outright victory when it comes to choice. They use it, abuse it, and the bronzed alloy takes the top podium when it comes to a cast medal.
An opportune and not opportunistic selection of bronze medals with no need to win to collect them!
