According to reports on the internet, the contents of an Olympic Silver Medal are the same as with an Olympic Gold Medal, 92.5 percent pure silver. The Gold Medal is covered by at least 6 grams of gold, according to the Olympic Charter. Some Olympic hosts make the medals larger or smaller according to their respective preferences...but the content must still follow the Charter.
