Gold medal featuring inscriptions and laurels, produced for the John Glover Award by the Royal Mint, 1959.

The replicas were meant to be presented to future Glover Lecturers. The Glover Memorial Lectures are usually presented in alternate years. This lectureship in science was established in 1958 in memory of John Glover of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England, the inventor of the Glover Tower, and in memory of his son and grandson, Henry and Lester Glover, by the late Dr. John D. Yeagley and Mrs. Yeagley of York, Pennsylvania.
