Reproduction British War Medal and Victory Medal, as awarded to British and some allied forces for service during the First World War. These medals are a reproduction of the full size medals and are provided with ribbons, ready for mounting or displaying.

The original British War medal was 1oz of solid silver. This is a campaign medal of the UK which was awarded to officers and men of British and Imperial forces for service in the First World War. Two versions of the medal were produced. About 6.5 million were struck in silver and 110,000 in bronze, the latter awarded to, among others, the Chinese, Maltese and Indian Labour Corps.

The Victory Medal (also called the Inter-Allied Victory Medal) is a UK and British Empire campaign medal of World War One. The award of a common allied campaign medal was recommended by an inter-allied committee in March 1919. Each allied nation would design a 'Victory Medal' for award to their own nationals, all issues having certain common features, including a winged figure of victory on the obverse and the same ribbon. Fourteen countries finally awarded the medal.

These medals are ideal to help create a tribute to a family member who served and saves having priceless originals on display for 'anyone' to see. We also have a selection of other medals for sale, both reproduction and original medals.
