Most people would want to put their Olympic gold medal on display. Caitlyn Jenner, though, prefers to keep it tucked away.

In an interview she posted onto WhoSay, Jenner -- formerly known as Bruce Jenner -- revealed that the medal is kept in a downright ordinary place -- though it's still stored in the original box.

Jenner won the medal at the 1976 Olympic Games in Montreal and set the world record in the decathlon -- and became an instant celebrity.

Jenner maintains that, despite its ordinary storage, the medal remains her "most prized possession."

"However, I never wanted my kids to feel like they had to have a gold medal in order to be considered a success," Jenner explained on WhoSay. "I didn't want them to constantly compare their own achievements to my time in the Olympics, so I haven't displayed my medal."

Jenner also indicates that while the medal represents a wonderful and exciting time in her life, she considers her present circumstance -- serving as one of the most prominent figures of the transgender movement -- as a far more satisfying experience.

But with her kids all grown up and successful on their own, Jenner says she's ready to consider putting the medal on display.
