The GIG is looking forward to reinitialise the tradition of the annual GIG-Medal.


The medail was designed by medalist Marianne Dietz (Berlin), known not just for her marvellous portraits but as well for her designs of German 10€ and 20€ commemorative coins (i.e. Sleeping Beaty 2015; The Valiant Little Tailor 2019). The portrait is based on an unknown drawing of Carl Wihlem Becker, a famous german medalist and forger. The production is realized by the engraver Claudius Riedmiller (Stuttgart).
