Now if only they can avoid the plating which makes most of our new medals look as if they belong on a WWF [wrestling] champion's belt!

Actually the plating should be minimal since the mint has once again taken over medal production. Hopefully, gone are the days of cheap casted overplated monstruosities such as the SSM.

The one thing I hope is that the award criteria won't be as horribly stupid as the previous jubilee medal.
