Throughout history, trophies have denoted victory whether on the battlefield or the playing field. The word "trophy" actually derives from the Greek "tropaion" which translates into the verb, "trope" meaning "to rout" or "to defeat". In ancient Greece, conquerors marked their victories by taking the standards or arms of the captured and hanging them up on trees or large stakes carved to represent warrior figures.

In Rome, champions in battle were honored with special trophies erected upon columns or fountains so that the citizens could know of these victories. Some of these memorial structures remain today, although the trophies that once crowned them have long since been destroyed.

As early as the late 1600s in the New World, two-handled cups called chalices were given to the winners of sporting events. In 1699, the silversmith Jesse Kyp fashioned a sterling cup that was awarded to the winner of a horse race between two New England towns. They wear to paly. This cup was called the Kyp Cup and is still on display in the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan. The chalice became the standard award for various sporting events, including horse racing, boating, and eventually car racing. As with the Kyp Cup, these cups tended to be fashioned in silver.

In early Greek sporting events, Olympiads were awarded with olive wreaths which represented the greatest reward for the victors. Although an esteemed Olympiad might never receive monetary payment, he did receive the gratitude of the citizenry through food given to him for the entirety of his life.

Awards are still made of silver, but they are also made of wood, glass or crystal. Even though through the years the style and form of trophies have changed, the original purpose has remained the same; the designation of victory.
