Mounting Products used by McNamee Medals
McNamee Medals only uses quality products when mounting medals. Unlike many other medal mounters who use carboard or cheap plastic products as a backing material when court mounting medals. McNamee Medals always uses military buckram which we import directly from the UK especially for the task. As it is made for purpose military buckram is the Australian Defence Force preferred backing material for court mounting of medals.
Court mounting of medals was historically reserved for those medal recipients who were awarded their medal at the Royal Court, while all other recipients wore their medals swing mounted. Over the years this tradition has been relaxed and today all Australian medal recipients have the choice to wear their medals court mounted. Since 2010 court mounting of medals has been mandatory for all serving Australian Defence Force and Reserve Force personnel. We have noticed that 98% of all our customers request court mounting for thier medals.
When medals are Court Mounted the medals with their riband (ribbon) are sewn to a solid backing which extends behind the medals keeping them rigid. The riband is extended down the rigid backing and behind the medal which is sewn to the rigid backing. This method of mounting protects the medal and ribbon enhances the look of the medals overall.
Mounting of full size medals (including replicas) $15.00 each medal*, miniatures $15.00 each medal
Swing Mounted medals are mounted such that they are able to swing freely on the mounting bar. When medals are swing mounted, they require much more care and attention than when they are court mounted, as the medals tend to clash together when worn. Over time this continual contact may damage the medals and ribbon, reducing their visual appearance. Hence for protection of your medals McNamee Medals recommend court mounting.
Mounting of full size medals (including replicas) $15.00 each medal*, miniatures $15.00 each medal*.
