Coleman Medal

The Coleman Medal is awarded yearly to the Australian Football League player who kicks the most goals in home-and-away matches in that year. It is named after John Coleman, the former Essendon full forward debuting with 12 goals to his name, he then carried on to kick 537 goals in 98 games and unfortunately was cut short by injury.[1]

Coleman Medal winners

Although only instituted in 1981, retrospective Coleman Medals were presented in 2004, dating back to 1955 which was the first season after Coleman's retirement. Winners prior to that were retrospectively awarded Leading Goalkicker Medals.[2][3] The winners of the Coleman Medal are:
