This man's medal stash is seriously impressive. It's definitely going to break very soon.

I write the date, tournament, event, and place on the back of each medal with a permanent marker, then I loop the strap through a metal pants hanger that I hang up in the corner of my closet. I have around 50, I think, but I don't know the exact number. I don't really like displaying them for everyone to see, so it's more just to help me keep them somewhat organized.

I have a medal rack shaped like an ice skate that I hang all my various medals on. The back side is for skating medals, the toe pick side is for other science-related medals, and each peg will hold medals of each year.

EDIT: *casually edits post a year later* it's the toe pick for the skating medals and the back of the blade for miscellaneous stuff, got the rack from a synchro skate competition and just decided why not use it

I have hooks that I bought with adhesive on the back, which I stuck to the wall above my desk. I have them organized in chronological order and by level of competition.

I just hang 'em by year from my Pinewood Derby trophies on top of my dresser. When I ran outta them, I started "borrowing" my mother's clothes hangers... And some invitational ones are on the handles on my dresser drawers..,
