"The medals will be produced after the gold, silver and bronze elements have been extracted by the smelting contractors". Over a whopping 5 million discarded/unwanted devices produced metals worth over $3 million. The gold medal will be gold plated over a silver base, with 30.3 kilograms of gold, 4,100 kilograms of silver and 2,700 kilograms of copper required for production. In its most recent update, officials said that almost 100% of the needed metals have been collected. They hit the target for bronze last June, and by October had more than 90 percent of the gold and 85 percent of the silver. And it's announced that the project is on target to meet its collection and reuse goal by March 2019. Recycled metal has also been collected from local Japanese businesses and industry.
