    1946 Nobel Committee Medal, MS63
    Gold Medallion for Physics

    1946 Nobel Committee 23K Gold Medal, MS63 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 inconsequential contact field marks, with fully brilliant and lustrous yellow-gold surfaces. Nobel's portrait on the obverse, and the arms of the Academy of Sciences on the reverse are bold well-struck.

    Percy Williams Bridgman made discoveries in the field of high-pressure physics, earning the 1946 Nobel Prize for Physics. The Harvard University scientist invented an apparatus to produce extremely high pressures, leading to the study of material properties under non-ordinary circumstances. (Est. $4,000-$5,000).
