Coleman Medal


Coleman Medal

The Coleman Medal is awarded yearly to the Australian Football League player who kicks the most goals in regular-season matches in that year. It is named after John Coleman, the former Essendon full forward whose spectacular career (of 537 goals in only 98 games) was cut short by injury.

Instituted in 1981, retrospective awards were dated back to 1955; prior to that, the League awarded the Leading Goalkicker Medal.The winners of the medal are:
