The medal is awarded "to a scientist who, during a long and active career, has made an outstanding contribution to pure or applied aspects of Mineral Sciences and associated studies". The medal is named after Joseph Henry Collins, mining engineer, mineralogist and geologist who was one of the founding members of the Mineralogical Society in 1886.
