New Zealand Medals Ltd - Military Antiques and Medals. Medal Mounting & Restoration

Medals for Collectors and Investment

Collecting medals is a popular pastime. We have a wide range of medals available so please send us details of any you are looking for. We have medals from the former collection of Aubrey Bairstow (which is a 30 year collection), the collection of the late Dr John Ross (which is a 70 year collection), as well as medals we have purchased as second hand dealers. All medals we sell will come with provenance and are genuine and as described.

We have a policy of generally NOT stating the name of the recipient when giving details of the medals in question. This is because we have noticed an annoying and dishonest trend over the years of descendants searching their ancestors name, finding the medals for sale, then insisting that the medals were "clearly" stolen 50 - 100  years earlier as "granddad would not have sold them". This policy of not naming recipients is becoming more common practice throughout the industry now.

Prices shown are inclusive of GST and include courier delivery NZ wide.

Nato Former Yugoslavia, Nato Kosovo, Op Telic Iraq Medal correctly laser named GNR RA, UN Cyprus Medal and 2012 Jubilee Medal. The medals mounted as worn. The Jubilee Medal tacked on the older mounting. I suspect that the recipient has discharged from the services and joined a uniformed service which qualified for the Jubilee Medal such as the Police or Prison Service. A nice set representing a decent number of deployments.

A NZ Volunteer Service Medal to the Auckland Regiment 
Correctly named by Bock to 3/1618 PVT R LUKE 3RD AUCK REG (COUNTESS OF RANFURLY'S) OWN (1911).

A bit of loss of beeswax filling to naming at 4 o'clock due to small edge knock or rubbing.

A great medal. The number isnt a WW1 number. Probably his full entitlement

THE MEDALS TO PRINCESS MARGARETS DRIVER AND VALET

Royal Victorian Medal and 2002 Jubilee Medal with certificates and a folder of related documents. Both medals un-named as issued. He returned his medals following the death of Princes Margaret but later had them returned to him. There are a number of newspaper clippings with the medals and it seems he fell out with the Royals after the Princess's death. As with Paul Burrell it seems various accusations had been made about his retention of cards etc. After Princess Dianas death he too had been tasked with the burning of a lot of her effects and letters.
