The Protocol provides that a souvenir medal shall be presented to all contestants and officials. To ensure a good subject being obtained for these medals the design was entrusted to Mr. J. C. WIENECKE, a well-known Dutch medallist. The design done by him was found suitable after a few slight alterations and a bronze medal made by the firm of GERRITSEN & VAN KEMPEN at Zeist; 5139 of these souvenirs were given to those who were entitled according to the terms of the Protocol, and 762 to persons who had rendered some special service to the Committee or were in some way closely connected with the Committee and who it was known would value such a medal.
