1.  The Hellenic Philotelic Society establishes a special Medal in order to award each year, the services and the contribution of persons and or institutions with notable philatelic activities in the past.

2.  The Medal will bear the Hermes Head and the words "Hellenic Philotelic Society". On the reverse it will be engraved with the recipient's name, the reason and the year of award.

3.  Prerequisites and qualifications to be taken into consideration are:

A.  Distinguished services to the Hellenic Philotelic Society, e.g. valuable long standing service, donations.
