Symons Gold Medal

Symons Gold Medal

In 1901, in memory of Geroge Symons FRS, a gold medal was established. The medal is awarded biennially for distinguished work in connection with meteorological science. A representation of the Tower of the Winds at Athens appears on the reverse side of this medal.
The medal was designed by Mr Frank Bowcher of Chiswick and the dies for it were furnished and executed by Mr John Pinches of London.
