Society of medalists

DEFINITION

Established in 1930 to encourage skilled sculptors to create medallic art, it is the oldest art medal organization in the United States. The Society has released 129 limited edition medals from 1930 to 1995. Each medal is bronze, and is struck exclusively by the Medallic Art Company. The first medal, "Hunter and Dog", 1930, was designed by Laura Gardin Fraser, and Geri Gould designed the 1995 medal, "Last Supper". In 1998, the Medal Collectors of America was formed in Portland, Oregon, and spearheaded by David Alexander, who was awared that collectors of medals had never formed their own organization. Although the organization is not officially tied to the Society of Medalists, it does publish a list of Society of Medalist winners for its collectors.
