[British Arts Medal Society]


These medals are not to be found on the chests of heroes or in athletes' lockers. They are the contemporary expression of a much older tradition of medals as works of art.

The British Art Medal Society has commissioned medals from many distinguished contemporary sculptors. Their work is extremely varied. There is portraiture and abstraction, the neo-classical, the conceptual and the satirical. Some are struck from hand engraved dies, the majority are cast in bronze and patinated by the artist.
