Museum of Philately awards Rowland Hill Medal to three exhibitors

The Museum of Philately awarded three philatelists with the Rowland Hill Medal Nov. 25 during the Monacophil stamp show held in Monte Carlo.

“As an online museum, we celebrate great and award-winning collections that promote, educate, and inspire viewers, illustrating the wonderful diversity of what has been called many times, the greatest of hobbies,” the museum stated in a press release.

The museum said after an active campaign with almost 1,000 public votes from young and old, male and female participants it decided to award not one but three medals. The awards were been presented to Iva Mouritsen, Simon Martin-Redman and John Davies at an awards ceremony at the Hôtel de Paris.

The well-recognised philatelists have three very different exhibits, all of which are available for reading on the Museum’s website. Below are links to the award winning exhibitions:



A Royal Ménage à Trois and its historical consequences


Penny Postage Jubilee, A Jubilee Reminisence


The First Forty Years 1858-1898


 ‘Whilst none of us can see into the future, this event today provides encouragement that the philatelic landscape in future years will be healthier and more diverse than ever before,” said the musuem’s David Feldman during the ceremony. “Certainly, if we continue to embrace new ways of doing things and the emerging technologies, we will enjoy a bright future, once again, exactly what the Museum of Philately is all about.’
