    Actually they bite the gold medal because in 1848 before the gold rush started, James Marshell was building a sawmill for, John Sutter, he found something the size of a pea and was colored yellow. He but it and it was gold. SO LEARN YOUR FACTS RANDOM RUclipR THAT WAS IN MY RECCOMENDED

    Edit: nvm this is the Olympic channel.

    This guy doesn’t make sense. So gold would be mixed with other metals to be made harder. As we all know gold is one of the softest metals on earth.
    So he says a merchant would test the authenticity of a coin by biting it. If there were teeth marks that would verify it of being an alloy and not gold? That doesn’t make sense. If anything that would authenticate the question of the metal being gold

  • Kelly EisBrenner
    Kelly EisBrenner 11 месяцев назад

    Why would a softer coin (bite marks) be evidence of a forgery? Fakes were made by alloying with harder metals... solid gold WOULD show bite marks. Did you get that backwards?

    Athletes spend 6 days a week, for several years, training for the Olympics. I think they certainly deserve a SOLID GOLD medal! And they don't deserve a 39% tax on any cash winnings from the Olympics.
