A classic(al) reference question

The old-timer reference librarians at the Downtown branch love questions like today's, which of course came in over the phone (all the most challenging ones seem to): "How big are Olympic medals and how much do they weigh?"

I will send a free book to anyone who can find a credible source for the average weight and diameter of all medals in modern Olympic history within less than a half hour of searching, because I don't think I could.
