“The first place winner will receive a shiny gold medal.”

Something that is “shiny” reflects light. Something made of smooth, polished metal is usually shiny. It’s similar to the word “shine”, but something that shines often emits its own light instead of reflecting another light source.

「1位の人はキラキラの金メダルが貰えます」

「Shiny」な物は光を反射します。ツルツルした物や、磨き上げた金属などが輝いていますね。「Shine光る」という単語に似ていますが、こちらは光を反射するのではなく、自ら光を放つものが多いです。
