Next year Cromwell will celebrate the 150th anniversary of the discovery of gold in the region, and the Cromwell and Districts Promotions Group is considering producing a medallion to mark the occasion.
Group secretary Terry Emmitt, who designed the medallion, said the idea was that it could be awarded to "all high achievers from every event held in the Cromwell district in 2012" so the "interest in the 150th anniversary is year-long" not concentrated from July 6 to 15 when the main celebrations would take place.
He has asked clubs and organisations to register their interest in receiving medallions to hand out to winners of events they were organising.
He said this was so the group could get an idea of how many medallions would need to be made.
Once the number was known, the group would approach the Central Lakes Trust for funding.
The medallions would be made in China of gold-plated nickel.
