f:408 -    Zakaat on gold medals
Country : India,
Name : Dr. Nahid Irfan
Question:     Assalamualaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu, Hadhrat I want to know what is the ruling of Zakaat on gold medals, when we don?t know how much gold they contain?
............................................................................
Answer:     Walaikum As Salaam Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu, Zakaat is an Islamic duty which is Obligatory on Muslim who has wealth, which meets the criterion of 60 grams and 755 milligrams of gold or 425 grams and 285 milligrams silver or its equivalent amount.  

Thus, you should find out what is the amount of gold in the gold medals.  If that gold reaches the prescribed limits, then giving the Zakaat for that gold is Obligatory on you.  

And Allah Most High knows best.
