To mark the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty The Queen, the Royal Mint Museum has announced a medal design competition for students and recent graduates. Entrants are asked to design a medal inspired by Her Majesty The Queen and the changes that have occurred during her remarkable reign. Entrants are given a free hand to explore any topic or theme relating to the subject, but inspiration and resources are available on the Museum’s website: https://www.royalmintmuseum.org.uk/platinum-jubilee/medal-competition/.
The competition is open to all undergraduate students and recent graduates whose course ended in the last two years.
Royal Mint Museum Director, Dr Kevin Clancy said “We are very pleased to announce this year’s medal design competition to celebrate this momentous occasion. We are excited about seeing the creative ways entrants interpret the Platinum Jubilee design brief and look forward to producing a medal worthy of such an incredible milestone in the life of the nation and of The Queen herself.”
