The medals for the PyeongChang Winter Olympics will be unveiled by South Korea President Moon Jae-in on Sept. 20 in New York City.

The reveal will run simultaneously with an event in South Korea.

If tradition holds, the medals will be unique.

Recent Winter Olympic medals include the Italian piazza design for Torino, the undulating surfaces for Vancouver and a patchwork quilt with diamond-shaped openings for Sochi.

The medals for the previous Olympics in South Korea — the 1988 Seoul Summer Games — were of the more traditional variety.
