Medal commemorating Rick Hansen's tour on display

VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – A large sterling-silver medal commemorating the 25th anniversary of Rick Hansen’s man-in-motion tour is now on display at the Royal Canadian Mint in Vancouver.

Alex Reeves with the Mint says 400 grams (12 ounces) of silver were used to create the piece, and the artwork is incredibly detailed. “There is also an interesting pattern on the back of the medal, which is an exact replica of the palm of a cycling glove that Rick Hansen used on his tour 25 years ago.”

The medal will be on display at the Mint on Granville Street, downtown Vancouver, until Sunday.
