1942 Nobel Committee Medal, MS64
1942 Nobel Committee 23K Gold Medal, MS64 NGC. 27 mm. 20
grams. The five members of the Nobel committees are tasked with the
identification of a worthy laureate for the Nobel Prize in the
various classes. With just five committee members, these medals
were struck in minuscule quantities and are extremely rare today.
Issued to committee members for Physics, this medal exhibits
minuscule marks in the fields and on the rims, with frosty and
fully lustrous yellow-gold surfaces. Nobel's portrait on the
obverse, and the arms of the Academy of Sciences on the reverse are
bold and well-struck.
Gold Medallion for Physics
There were no Nobel Prizes awarded in 1942 for any category, one of just six years that the prize for physics went unawarded. The other years were 1916, 1931, 1934, 1940, and 1941. The prize money was returned to the Nobel Fund, with one-third going to the Main Fund and two-thirds going to the Special Fund.
