United Nations

A United Nations Medal is an international service medal awarded by the United Nations (UN) to the various world countries members for participation in joint international military and police operations such as: peacekeeping, humanitarian efforts and disaster relief. The medal is ranked in militaries and police forces as a service medal.

The United Nations awarded its first medal during the Korean War (1950–1953). Since 1955, many additional United Nations medals have been created and awarded for participation in various United Nations missions and actions around the world. While the medal itself remains the same a new ribbon is issued with each Mission. Where there may be from time to time multiple Missions in diverse years in the same international operations area, a new ribbon is not generally issued as each ribbon is Mission specific. However there have been exceptions, as noted in the chart below.
 A chart of United Nations operations over the years is shown below.

Some of the United Nations medals awarded to New Zealand service personnel and foreign military we have done medal mounting for are listed below the UN chart.  We can also supply other less common issue medal variants on request in both full size and miniature. In some instances there may be a delivery lead time, if we do not have the ribbons in stock and have to source from England. Should this be the case we will advise you at the time of order placement.

Other UN medals including miniatures will be added as time permits.
