Not only does the winner of the Masters get a green jacket and a gold medal, but the champion is also awarded a trophy that features the Augusta National Golf Club clubhouse.
The permanent Masters Trophy was introduced in 1961. Made in England, the trophy features 900 different silver pieces to form the shape of the clubhouse. The trophy sits on a pedestal, banded with silver which is engraved with the names of the winner and runner-up of each Masters. It remains at the club permanently.
The trophy is huge. It's on a 4-foot-wide base and it weighs approximately 132 pounds. The band for the engraved names is 9 feet, 6 inches.
Beginning in 1993, the club decided to award a Sterling replica of the trophy to the Masters champion. The replica is 13.5 inches wide, 6.5 inches tall and weighs 20 pounds.
