Believed to be worth between £5,000 and £7,000 ($7,841-$10,979), the 15 carat gold medal was awarded to an unidentified Bolton Wanderers player after the team's 1-0 victory against Manchester City at Wembley.

The winning goal was scored just 12 minutes from time by inside forward David Jack.

FA Cup collectibles often achieve substantial sums at auction. In May 2013, the earliest known example of an FA Cup final programme set a new auction record for a football programme at auction, bringing £30,000 ($45,788).
