The organizing board of the 31st Southeast Asian Games (SEA Games) confirmed on Sunday it had completed designing the medal template and started the production of 4,000 medals to prepare for the grand event next month.

The 31st SEA Games medals are made from a copper-zinc compound, of which red copper accounts for about 85 percent.

Each medal is five millimeters thick with the image of the mascot – the saola – on one side and the logo of the tournament on the other.

The gold medals will be plated with 24-karat gold. Similarly, the silver medals will be silver plated, and the bronze medals will be bronze plated.

For better durability, each medal will have an additional four layers of plating.

The strings of the medals will be sewn with woven fabric instead of being made from silk or satin.

The 31st SEA Games will take place in Hanoi and 11 neighboring provinces and cities from May 12 to 23.

The biennial event was originally scheduled to be held from November 21 to December 2, 2021 but was postponed since Vietnam began facing a flare-up in COVID-19 cases in late April the same year.

The tournament will be attended by 11 delegations from Southeast Asian nations and consist of 526 categories in 40 sports.

About 7,878 athletes, coaches, and members of the 11 sports delegations have registered for the event as yet.
