Gold Medal
A gold medal is a medal awarded for highest achievement in a non-military field. Its name derives from the use of at least a fraction of gold in form of plating or alloying in its manufacture. Since the eighteenth century, gold medals have been awarded in the arts, for example, by the Royal Danish Academy, usually as a symbol of an award to give an outstanding student some financial freedom. Others offer only the prestige of the award. Many organizations now award gold medals either annually or extraordinarily, including UNESCO
UNESCO
and various academic societies. While some gold medals are solid gold, others are gold-plated or silver-gilt, like those of the Olympic Games, the Lorentz Medal, the United States Congressional Gold

Citation
A citation is a reference to a published or unpublished source (not always the original source)[citation needed]. More precisely, a citation is an abbreviated alphanumeric expression embedded in the body of an intellectual work that denotes an entry in the bibliographic references section of the work for the purpose of acknowledging the relevance of the works of others to the topic of discussion at the spot where the citation appears. Generally the combination of both the in-body citation and the bibliographic entry constitutes what is commonly thought of as a citation (whereas bibliographic entries by themselves are not)

List Of The World's Richest Literary Prizes
Many literary awards attract a significant remuneration as part of their prize. This is a list of active literary awards from around the world with remunerations valued at least US$100,000 or equivalent. Inclusion criteria[edit]The award is active and is primarily focused on writing and the arts. The remuneration is equal to or greater than US$100,000 or equivalent. Because fluctuating exchange rates move non-US dollar denominated awards in and out of the list over time, awards near this amount are also included. The award is for any genre of writing (fiction, journalism, etc.) or award type (book or author). The listed remuneration is for a single winner or co-winners. The list does not aggregate the total value of runners-up and other prizes within the same award

Erik Lindberg
Erik Lindberg (1873 in Stockholm, Sweden – 1966) was a sculptor and engraver. He was best known for designing the Nobel Prize medals. He was the son of Adolph Lindberg, another famous sculptor. Following his father he entered the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Stockholm in 1893 and obtained a scholarship. This enabled him to spend some years in Paris, from around 1901 to 1902 where he was influenced by modern French medal engravers of that period such as Louis-Oscar Roty, Chaplain, Tasset and Vernon. In 1901 Lindberg was given the task of creating the Nobel medals for Physics, Chemistry, Physiology or Medicine and Literature. The Peace medal was created by Norwegian Gustav Vigeland. According to correspondence between Lindberg and his father, the designs were not quite ready for the first ceremony in 1901; the reverse sides of the medals required approval from the Prize-Giving association, and so the winners were given temporary medals
