Congressional Gold Medal

Congressional Gold Medals are commissioned by the US Congress to recognise and appreciate individuals for their distinguished achievements and contributions. Most recently, the medal was conferred to the US Capitol Police and those who protected the US Capitol while it was under siege by Trump supporters.
In every session of the Congress, the legislations to award the Congressional Gold Medal are introduced. All the Congressional Gold Medal legislations must be co-sponsored by at least two-thirds of the members of the House. There is no set limit on the number of such medals that can be awarded during a given year.
