Largest Coin-like Medallion

On Monday, 15 December 2008, Guinness World Records™ were proud to touch down in Dubai, UAE, to measure an attempt to manufacture the world's largest coin-like medallion. The item in question was made by Damas LLC, Dubai, one of the Middle East’s leading jewellery retailers, for the 10th anniversary of the Sheikh Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Awards for Medical Sciences. It was presented to H. H. Sheikh Hamdan himself in a grand ceremony that was attended by top scientists and doctors from all over the world.

Guinness World Records is delighted to confirm that the attempt was successful: the coin measured 1 m (3 ft 2 in) across and weighed in at a hefty 185.88 kg (409.8 lb). It was made of solid silver and then plated in gold. A team of 85 dedicated staff had been assembled to complete the unique masterpiece within just 30 days.

This was the latest in a long list of new records achieved in Dubai and Guinness World Records hopes there are many more to come.

Rob Molloy from Guinness World Records was on site to award the certificate for this outstanding achievement.
