Product Description

Medal Mounting Service

Our medal mounting service includes medal cleaning and new medal ribbon at no extra cost!*

Bigbury Mint Ltd have a team of skilled seamstresses who are fully conversant with current uniform regulations.

Military medals and commemorative medals can be mounted as a single medal or mounted as a group of medals.

There are two styles of medal mounting;

Swing Style medal mounting

Medals mounted swing style are mounted on a medal brooch bar which can then be pinned to your tunic or a pocket holder. Swing style mounting allows the medals to move or ‘swing’ when worn. We sometimes refer to this method as the “jingly jangly” as the medals will bounce off each other when worn.

Court Style medal mounting

Medals mounted court style are fixed to a rigid backing material called buckram. Court style mounting holds the medals firmly in place and prevents them ‘chinking’ together and damaging each other when worn.

Medal Mounting Frequently Asked Questions;

Q. Do you use glue to stick medals to the backing when you are court mounting?
A. No! Definitely not. We hand stitch medal ribbon to the buckram and anchor medals with invisible thread. We only ever use glue purely as a guide when over-stitching the felt backing onto the rear of a court mount set of medals. This ensures your medals will stay secure…even on wet parades!
Q. What do you use as backing material for mounting medals?
A. We use Buckram which is a very stiff fabric used to stiffen clothes. We actually double layer the buckram to ensure your court mounted medals will not sag or bend at the corners. This also ensures that the brooch pin is supported properly.

*If you do not require the medals to be cleaned, please specify this in the “Additional Comments” area of the form.

    :

    Finally decided to have my loose medals mounted and chose Bigbury. Both my full size and miniature medals were returned looking superb. There were some queries along the way but I received some excellent customer service from the staff that helped immensely. I can highly recommend this service to those considering using it.

    After a number of years debating what to do with my fathers medals I contacted Bigbury to discuss. The staff were so helpful, outlining options an I chose display boxes instead of a wall mounted frame as we had a large and small set of medals.

    The service was quick,within the week we received a phone call the day prior to delivery, they arrived the following day by registered post and we were delighted with the result. Two beautiful blue leather boxes with velvet lining on which the medals are displayed beautifully and will be easily transportable should we need to take them to relatives. A huge thank you to the staff, we are so pleased with them.
