A Look at the Catan Sun™ Trophies
Learn more about the magnificent Catan Sun™ trophies, awarded to the final four players in the Catan World Championship 2012.
Winning the Catan World Championship™ comes with a cornucopia of rewards. There is of course the sheer pride of the title “best Catan player in the world” and an eight day, seven night Caribbean Gamer Adventures cruise. However, the grandest prize of all is the heirloom-quality Catan Sun™ trophies that the final four contestants receive.
Mayfair commissions the trophies to be made in two distinct parts: the base and the apex. The bases are made from Black Walnut, Cherry, Hickory and Maple woods, which are local woods to the area of pennsylvania where the championship occurred. On top of each base sits the apex part of the trophy. The four trophy apexes, starting with first place, are: the Gold Sun™, the Silver Sun™, the Bronze Sun™ and the Pewter Sun™.
The Gold Sun™ medallion is a gold filigree jewel made from 2 ounces of pure gold and inset with 3.5 carats of brilliant natural blue Sapphires. The Silver Sun™ is an elegant silver filigree jewel made from pure silver and inlaid with moonstone and opals. The Bronze Sun™ is an ornate, multi-toned bronze filigree jewel. Finally, the Pewter Sun™ is a multi-toned pewter filigree jewel.
