the Historical Medal Society

For collectors of historical medals and medallions

The Historical Medal Society was established in 2014 by two British numismatists keen to promote the study of historical medals and medallions. The Society meets annually at Medallion Congress and publishes research in the Historical Medal Journal.

The most recent edition of the Historical Medal Journal, Number 6, was published in June 2024 and is available for purchase.

The 10th Medallion Congress was held at the Delta Marriott Hotel in Warwick on 22 June 2024. The date of the 2025 Congress is yet to be announced.

The Society welcomes requests to help identify medals or medallions, so if you have a mystery medal and think we may be able to help, please contact us (attaching an image if possible).
