Sanford Saltus Gold Medal
The John Sanford Saltus Medal is the Society's premier distinction, awarded triennially, on the vote of Members, for the recipient's scholarly contributions to British Numismatics. The medal was established in 1910 with a generous donation by Mr John Sanford Saltus (1854-1922), a past-President of the Society.
Although the award was initially based on publications in the British Numismatic Journal, the regulations were widened in 2005 to take account of an author's entire publications in the field and to make non-members eligible for the award. In exceptional circumstances Council may propose the award of a special medal. For further details see the revised Rules for the John Sanford Saltus Medal .
An appeal in 2005 established a Prize Fund to support this and the Society's other prizes.
