Nobel Peace Prize
Answer: The Nobel Peace Prize is considered one of the most prestigious awards on the planet. The prize money can be traced back to the award’s creator and the inventor of dynamite, Alfred Nobel, who stipulated that his estate (worth $197.4 million today) would continue to accrue in value by investing in “safe securities” back in 1895. It would then be awarded annually to prize winners. The Chairman of the Norwegian Nobel Committee presents the Nobel Peace Prize in the presence of the King of Norway on 10 December each year (the anniversary of Nobel’s death). The Nobel Peace Prize winner receives a diploma, a gold medal, and a document confirming the prize amount. As of 2013, the prize was worth 10 million SEK (about US $1.5 million).
The Nobel Peace Prize is one of the five Nobel Prizes created by the Swedish industrialist, inventor, and armaments manufacturer Alfred Nobel, along with the prizes in Chemistry, Physics, Physiology or Medicine, and Literature. Wikipedia
