Which Albert Medal inner are you?


The RSA has a proud history of rewarding, thinkers, innovators and designers that promote the public good. The Albert Medal was established in 1864 as a memorial to Prince Albert, who has been our president for 18 years and whose portrait still hangs in our stairway. The Society still presents the medal every year to those people who work to find solutions to some of the world’s most difficult and pressing problems.

Last year’s medal was given to Jos De Blok for his work as founder of Buurtzog, a transformational new model of community health care, and work is already underway to select this year’s winner. Throughout its 250 year history the RSA has honoured a wide range of people with the medal for everything from inventing the telephone to services to agriculture. Take the quiz below to find out which historical medal winner you most resemble.
