The American Medallic Sculpture Association (AMSA) is conducting a special art medal competition to commemorate the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in the United States (in 2020). The competition is open only to paid-up members of AMSA. The winner
will receive a $300 prize. All entries will be featured early in 2020 in the AMSA publication and on the AMSA web site, along with specifications, edition sizes, prices and ordering information, so that medals can be ordered directly from the medalists starting early in 2020. AMSA asks entrants to indicate this information, along with their snail mail, email and PayPal addresses.

Submissions for medals to commemorate the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in the United States, produced in 2019, should be sent to numismel@aol.com by March 1st, 2021. Press releases will be sent out announcing the winner and directing people to all of the entries on the AMSA web site. Heidi Wastweet, President of AMSA, indicates that “This is a great opportunity for medalists to expose their talents to a large audience.”


The illustrated medal is one of the few created in the past commemorating women’s suffrage in the U.S. It was issued in the 1970s by the Longines Symphonette in their Great American Triumphs series.
