Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) awarded for service worthy of particular recognition. The Order Of Australia insignia feature the golden wattle flower as the central emblem. The wattle motif is also carried through the riband. An individual ball of wattle blossom has been developed into a simple convex gold disc featuring a rich texture of beads and radiating lines to accentuate the central circlet which represents the surrounding sea. The wattle flower and colours of gold, and where used, royal blue are taken from the Commonwealth Coat Of Arms.IMPORTANT, PLEASE NOTE:These honours are supplied with 250mm of riband in either the civilian or military division as ordered. This is sufficient riband for mounting in a frame, and sufficient for court or swing mounting of the medal; however significantly more riband will need to be purchased for the neck sash of the Officer or Member classes of the order. Please email for more details as this riband stock is very expensive and the price varies on availability at the time.

Medals, whether originals or replicas deserve to be mounted with military precision. Frankly the old Australian adage of 'near enough is good enough' has no place here; 'near enough is just not good enough.' We can accurately mount your medals (all medals on the site here have a mounting option included in each description) by skilled Australian craftspeople with a service background, in either swing or court (sometimes called Royal) mount style (which is demanded by the ADF and most other agencies, and preferred by most veterans). And we guarantee your mounting and ribands for life!
Australian Iraq Campaign Medal: The medal recognises service in and around Iraq from 18 MAR 2003 in two discrete operations and AOs; OP FALCONER and OP CATALYST.

The reverse of the Iraq Medal is based on a processional lion copied from a relief on the Gateway of the Temple of Ishtar in Babylon. The lion was one of the dominant 'power symbols' of the Assyrian Empire, being reserved to the ruling house and the higher priesthood of the dominant sects. The lion stands on a narrow plinth (for balance) and the word "IRAQ@" appears below. The obverse of the medal is based on the Australian Coat of Arms (the same as the Afghanistan Campaign Medal to be released for reproduction shortly and the Australian Defence Medal which has still not been gazetted or issued). The riband design for the Iraq Medal is a combination of: a. Sand yellow - representing the desert sands of Iraq; b. Purple - representing the ADF; and c. Red - the conflict in Iraq.
And please note, this medal is now a superb high-quality injection-moulded reproduction.
We don't 'nickel and dime' you by supplying scant, unusable riband lengths, or worse, making riband a hidden-in-the-fine-print optional extra - every medal comes with 250mm of riband (full size) and 150mm (miniature). Ample for a complete professional court mount.
