How much is a medal worth?

When it comes to deciding a medals’ value, there are a number of factors which always have a significant influence.

Age, condition and rarity are always important when grading military medals, but the campaign for which it was awarded is also of importance.

The following campaign medals also tend to prove popular:

  • Peninsula War
  • Waterloo
  • Crimean War
  • Indian Mutiny
  • Boer War
  • First World War
  • Second World War

Gallantry Medals from all campaigns and theatres are also extremely sought after.

Because some campaign medals are not inscribed, such as British awards from 1939 to 1945, it is important to relay any other details which are known when seeking a medal valuation.

Original documentation – such as photographs, a pilot’s flying log book or any certificates which were awarded – can prove very useful when trying to establish a medal’s provenance.

If any details are known about the recipient, they can also help to increase a medals value because buyers are often inspired by the brave stories behind these historic items.

The type of bars, clasps and ribbons which were issued with the medal can also increase its value.

Whilst we will do all we can to provide you with an accurate medal valuation, its worth ultimately depends on what someone is prepared to pay – and selling at auction can be the best way achieve the maximum possible realisation.
