The medals feature a black grouse – a logo of the Deaflympics. All of them are identical except for their color and the names of sport disciplines engraved on them. The stylized black grouse symbolizes wealth in culture of khanti people. Besides, the logo looks like a hand of a man – which is the main device for communication of deaf and hard-of-hearing athletes.

All medals have gloss finish with decorative metal coating of three types – gold, silver and bronze. The diameter of medals is 80 mm, their width is 6 mm. Deaflympic medals are made of zinc fusion and are decorated with the multi-colored ribbon with brand identity of the forthcoming Games.
