The medal shows the DNA double helix against a background of concentric lines reminiscent of a fingerprint, another method of establishing identity. It was designed on a computer and the data sent to a computerised rapid-prototyping machine, which cut the master models with fine precision. Only the casting was done in the traditional way.
