This medal is a miniature medal and only available to recipients of the full sized Gold Roger Sherman Medal.

Precedence: 13
Year Authorized: 2013
Presented By: National Society
Approved By: President General

Description: The medal is gold in color and bears on the obverse a portrait of Roger Sherman, with the inscription “Roger Sherman Medal.” The reverse of the medal is inscribed “In Appreciation for Service to the SAR.” It is suspended from a chest ribbon of blue, white, and red.

Summary: The Gold Roger Sherman Medal may be awarded by the National Society to a Compatriot in recognition of, and in appreciation of, outstanding service that does not meet the requirements for the Meritorious Service Medal. It should be awarded in place of the Bronze and Silver Good Citizenship Medals, which cannot be awarded for service to the SAR. General Officers and National Society Committee Chairman may recommend Compatriots who have served as (i) an active officer for a minimum of two years, (ii) an active committee chairman or vice chairman for a minimum of three years, or (iii) an active member of a committee for a minimum of four years to the President General for recognition at the President General’s discretion. In addition, the President General may present this medal to those Compatriots providing significant service to the National Society during his term of office.

This Medal is named after Roger Sherman (1721-1793), who was a founding father, and the only person to sign all four Congressional papers of the United States: the Continental Association, the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, and the Constitution.

Subsequent Presentation Authorized: A Compatriot may be recommended for and receive this medal multiple times. A bronze oak leaf cluster may be awarded for an additional two years of active service as an officer, chairman or committeeman. The service is counted cumulatively rather than consecutively, and may not be added concurrently for multiple offices, committee chairmanships, or committee memberships. Multiple oak leaf cluster recognition shall follow NSSAR policy.
