John Nash’s Nobel Medal to Be Auctioned

The Nobel Prize medal belonging to John F. Nash, awarded in recognition of his contributions to game theory, is set to be auctioned at Sotheby’s in New York on Oct. 17, reports The New York Times. It carries an estimate of $2.5 to $4 million.

Nash, whose life inspired the movie “A Beautiful Mind,” won the Nobel Prize for economics in 1994, at a time when he was unemployed, after years of struggling with mental illness.

He died in a car accident last year, at age 86.
