Miniature and Replica Medals

Replica and Miniature of European Union medals and many other foreign and overseas medals and ribbons can be sourced on request.


Replica Medals


Our replica medals are identical reproductions of the original medal and are made of metal (not plastic) having the same look and feel as the originals.  Although they are often not made of exactly the same material as the original medals they have the same look and feel.  Replica medals are produced and used for any number of reasons some of which include:


     •     to be held by family members in memory of the achievements of another family member,

     •     to replace lost or stolen medals,

     •     to be worn by serving personnel or family members at functions such as Anzac Day allowing the     

           originals to be kept safely

Miniature Medals


Miniature Medals are half size copies of the original medals and are normally worn with evening dress (after 6pm).  Since the implementation of the Australian Honours System in 1975 all Australian medals are issued with a miniature medal.  Prior to that date Australian medals were all issued via the British Imperial Honours system and miniature medals were not included.  Serving personnel who were expected to wear miniature medals to formal functions had to purchase their own.


The price for replica medals is from $22.00 per full size medal and $12.00 per miniature All prices are Inclusive of GST. Always make sure when asking for a quote from any medal mounter that you ask if GST is included.

NATO and EUROPEAN UNION Medals


The NATO Medal is an international military decoration awarded to various militaries of the world under the authority of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO). Similar to the UN medal NATO uses a single medal with a different ribbon or clasp to identify the operation to which the medal applies.  These include medals for service in Yugoslavia, Kosovo, the Republic of Macedonia, two for service during Article 5 operations (Eagle Assist, Active Endeavour), and four for Non-Article 5 NATO operations (ISAF, Balkans, NTM-Iraq, and Pakistan). In addition, there are corresponding clasps for operations such as ISAF (International Security Assistance Force) for the NATO led mission in Afghanistan, Kosovo, Yugoslavia. There is also a NATO Meritorious Service Medal, with a "Meritorious Service" clasp.  Replicas and minatures for all of these medals and ribbons can be provided and mounted by Mcnamee Medals.

The European Union (EU) issues the Common Security and Defence Policy Service Medal (formerly the European Security and Defence Policy Service Medal), which is an international military decoration awarded to individuals, both military and civilian, who have served with CSDP missions. To recognize service in these missions the EU authorised the creation of a medal with a common obverse and reverse, to which clasps featuring the missions' name are attached to the ribbon bar. Replicas and miniatures for all of these medals and ribbons can be provided and mounted by Mcnamee Medals.
