Medal Mounting

Protocols require that medals be mounted in order of precedence, and there are two styles in which this can be done:

Court Mounting

 

 

Court Mounting

Court mounting is the modern military standard.  With this style medals are mounted on a backing board and secured.  This affords greater protection for the medals, and is necessary if you are presently in military service or likely to be involved in ceremonies involving regal or vice regal presence.

 

The benefit of court mounting is that with the medals being secured they will not knock against, and chip, the medals next to them.

Swing Mounted Medals

 

Swing Mounting

Clients often prefer WW1 and WW2 medals to be mounted in this traditional style.  The clinking of the medals when worn add an authenticity to the occasion.

Swing mounted medals are particularly good to show young children as the medals can be easily viewed from both sides.

Some women may find this mounting style preferable to the more rigid court mount.

 

 

All medal mounting work is done locally – minimizing the risk of medals being lost in the post or incurring extra postage charges.
