Dedicated to collecting- the medal shows some animals, which
collect some things.
Homage to Collectors; BAMS medal from 1990.
A medal in honour of those who support medallists : the collectors. The impulse-buying collector is represented by a magpie; the collector carefully buying for investment, is shown as a squirrel. The reverse shows the sheer joy the collector experiences in pursuit of a medal.
The medal, cast in bronze, measures 100mm.
