The Guild of Medallic Art in Finland
The Guild of Medallic Art in Finland was founded in 1965 as a
connecting link between artists, collectors, medal issuers, museums,
galleries and similar institutions, to promote medallic art in Finland.
The Guild organises competitions for artists, issues medals and
organises exhibitions. It is a member of FIDEM (Fédération
Internationale de la Médaille), which organises
international congresses and exhibitions. The Guild also has a collection
consisting mostly of modern Finnish medals. The collection is deposited
in the Tampere Art Museum.
Part of the collection is permanently on display.
The yearbook of medallic art has been published since 2000. It
includes English summaries.
