Offered here is the actual Gold Medal that was given to Jim Turnesa for winning the 1952 PGA Championship at Big Spring Country Club in Louisville, KY. Turnesa was the winner of the 34th PGA Championship, which was contested via Match Play. 

Obviously, gold medals from Major Championships rarely become available, and this is a fine example. 

This large medal is 1 3/4" in diameter, contains 47.7 grams of 14k gold, and is inlaid with a real diamond.
