The Huntington Medal Award

Edward Newell’s Huntington Award Medal—the first ever recieved in 1918
ANS 1968.44.1

The Huntington Medal Award is conferred annually in honor of the late Archer M. Huntington in recognition of outstanding career contributions to numismatic scholarship. The medal was designed in 1908 by Emil Fuchs to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the founding of the ANS. At Huntington’s request, his image does not appear on it.

Bronze examples were sold to members to fund the creation of the medal, and some extras were awarded to collectors who displayed pieces at exhibitions sponsored by the Society. However, as the Council later noted, when the medal was commissioned, “[i]t was provided that specimens in silver should be awarded from time to time, in recognition of literary or other services to the science of numismatics.”

Archer M. Huntington (1870-1955)
