The Nobel Prize includes the Nobel medal, a diploma, and a monetary award.................. Each Nobel Prize consists of a gold medal, a diploma bearing a citation, and a sum of money, the amount of which depends on the income of the Nobel Foundation.

A sum of $1,300,000 accompanied each prize in 2005 and has increased each year to the current amount- 1.4 million US dollars in 2009.)
