The Association makes two awards, the Ray Jewell Award and the Paul Simon Memorial Award, and Awards Committees are established for each of these.
In 1998 the Association established the RAY JEWELL AWARD in honour of the founder and first President of the Association. The Award consists of two divisions, silver for outstanding contribution to Australian numismatics and the Numismatic Association of Australia; and bronze for the most outstanding article published in the Journal of The Numismatic Association of Australia over two consecutive volumes.

THE PAUL SIMON MEMORIAL AWARD was established in 1977 by Mrs Jessica Simon, of Ballarat Victoria, in memory of her late husband, Paul Simon. He was an authority on gold coinage of the world and was an enthusiastic collector. Paul Simon was a prominent businessman, a President of the Numismatic Association of Victoria, and a Fellow of the Royal Numismatic Society in London. The award consists of a medallion by Michael Meszaros, struck at the Paris Mint, which depicts a portrait of Paul Simon on the obverse, and a hand holding a coin of Israel on the reverse, together with a certificate.
The Award was established to recognize the outstanding contribution by any person in promoting numismatics within organized numismatic organizations in Australia.
