The 1994 FIFA World Cup was the first held on U.S. soil and came down to a memorable Final between two world soccer powers. On July 17th at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA, Brazil and Italy played to a scoreless tie before Seleção prevailed on penalties (3-2) for their unprecedented fourth world title. Led by star midfielder Dunga (team captain) and the lethal striker combination of Romario and Bebeto, Brazil cruised through the group stage before winning close matches in the knockout rounds and sweating through a tight Final.

This 1994 World Cup Winner’s Gold Medal was awarded to an unidentified member of the Brazil National Team. Only players, coaches and top staff members (30 total) were issued these official winner's medals. Crafted by renowned Swiss minter Huguenin, the obverse features a relief image of the modern World Cup trophy. The reverse has “FIFA - World Cup - USA – 1994” in raised lettering with the ever-important "Huguenin" and “585” [symbol for 14-karat gold] hallmarks. The medal hangs from its original red, white and blue ribbon (EX-MT) and presents beautifully in Extremely Fine condition with light surface wear. Diameter is 50 mm, width is 3-4 mm, and weight is 84 grams including the ribbon. These rarely come up for auction and demand a heavy premium among esteemed collectors. Just three months ago (5/21/2020), a 1994 gold sold for $48,000.
