The video shows the journey of the 2015 Nobel Peace Prize medal from the mine in Colombia to its award at Oslo City Hall.The Norwegian Mint and its owner Samlerhuset Group, in co-operation with the organisation Alliance for Responsible Mining (ARM), has announced the 2015 Nobel Peace Prize medal will be made from fair-mined gold coming from a small Fairmined-certified mine in Iquira, Colombia.
The medal featuring the head of Alfred Nobel was struck at the Norwegian Mint in Kongsberg, Norway, ahead of the ceremony on December 10, when it will be presented to the Tunisian National Dialogue Quartet.
Norwegian Mint owner and chief executive Ole Bjørn Fausa said: “The initiative and collaboration with ARM does not only apply to the Peace Prize medal or our own business. We want a harder look to be taken at what gold is used by the coin and medal industry and more and more players to make use of certified gold from small mines. In this way, the working conditions can gradually be improved for those working in them and the environment can be saved.”
