The Lichtenstein Medal, also known as the Alfred F. Lichtenstein Memorial Award for Distinguished Service to Philately is given annually to a living individual for outstanding service to philately.

Origin[edit]

The Lichtenstein Medal was established by the Collectors Club of New York in 1952 in honor of noted philatelist Alfred F. Lichtenstein (1876-1947).

The Lichtenstein Medal is similar in importance in philately with the Lindenberg Medal awarded by the Berliner Philatelisten-Klub of Germany for investigations and contributions to philatelic literature.
