First awarded in 1901, the Nobel Prize is one of the highest honors a person can receive in his lifetime. The Nobel Prize was founded by Swedish engineer, inventor and chemist Alfred Nobel. The Nobel Foundation was established under his will, and stipulated that prizes be awarded annually to "those who have made the greatest contribution to mankind in the previous year." Nobel also demanded, "Regardless of nationality, prizes are awarded to the most valuable people, whether they are Scandinavians or not." "Nobel Prizes are awarded in five fields: peace, literature, physics, chemistry, physiology or medicine. In 1969, the Riksbank established the "Srinksbank Prize in Economics in Memory of Alfred Nobel" (SRPESMAN) and included the Nobel Prize. Currently, each prize is 10 million crowns (about 6.4 million yuan), and certificates and gold medals are awarded on December 10 every year (Nobel died on December 10, 1896).
