Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  2. I would guess that the answer depends on the quality you are looking for. Occasionally very cheapand nasty copies of current(ish) medals appear on Ebay, and obviously these must be made somewhere. However, the quality is very poor. Conversely a decent replica would need to be minted, which would put the mint in the driving seat when it came to pricing. As these are usually struck to order and engraved, they may not be prepared to do themselves out of future business. I have used Bigbury Mint to get copies of my gongs, and the quality was superb with a service to match.

  3. Gladman & Norman strike the replica medals sold by Bigbury Mint and Award Productions, etc., and quite a few others.

    The holding company is Worcestershire Medal Service Ltd

    I hope this helps you out. :wink:
