The Gold Medal is awarded by Council upon the recommendation of the Honours Committee to an esteemed Fellow of the College who has made a significant contribution in their field whether in the UK or overseas.
Any Fellow of the College may submit a nomination to the Honours Committee, which should consist of their nominee's CV and a brief statement indicating the reasons for the nomination.
Serving Officers and Honours Committee members will not be eligible for this award. Self-nominations are not permitted.
Until November 2008, there were two equally prestigious medals awarded, the President's Medal and the Gold Medal.
Nominations are now open. Please contact the Executive Assistant for more information. The closing date is Friday 6 September 2019.
