The Australian Defence Medal: Sometimes called the ‘4 Year Medal,’ the ADM was struck in 2006 to recognise service with the defence forces of Australia, the eligibility criteria includes former ADF members who completed their initial enlistment period, or four years service, whichever is the lesser. The criteria also recognises National Servicemen and those who could not serve the four-year qualifying period because of the ADF’s workplace and enlistment policies of the time.
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.

The National Emergency Medal: The NEM was established by Her Majesty The Queen for the purpose of according recognition for the unique contribution and significant commitment of those persons who have provided service in response to a nationally-significant emergency. As part of the Regulations, the bushfires that happened in the State of Victoria in February 2009, the floods that happened in the State of Queensland during December 2010 and January 2011 and Cyclone Yasi have been declared as nationally-significant emergencies.
Australian War Service: This two medal set represents war service generally for those who served within Australia and its territories (additional campaign medals were added for overseas service) during WW2, between 3 Sep 1939 and 2 Sep 1945. The War Medal 1939-45 was awarded for a minimum period of service of 28 days, the Australia Service Medal for 30 days full-time or 90 days part time service.
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. Zone 1 qualifying service is 18 MAR to 30 APR 2003 for a minimum 7 days’ service. Zone 2 is from 1 MAY 2003 onwards for a minimum 30 days’ service. Eligibility for RAAF is based on 7 or 30 sorties for the respective zone/s where those sorties were conducted over a period not less than an aggregate of 7 or 30 sorties performed at a rate of not less than one sortie per day.
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.
