Civilian, Table, Award and Wearable Medals
A Medal can mean three things: Wearable Medals, Awarded Medals and Civilian or Table Medals. In this eBay category you can find all three types of medals. However, this category is mainly for Civilian or Table Medals! Tokens and Medals are part of the Exonumia subcategory of Numismatics (Coins), while Wearable medals are considered
Militaria (military related).
A Wearable Medal awarded by a government for services to a country, typically awarded for distinguished services to a nation or to humanity.
The Medal of Honor is the highest military decoration awarded by the United States. It is awarded "for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of life, above and beyond the call of duty, in actual combat against an armed enemy force." Since it was first awarded during the Civil War, the medal has been awarded 3,460 times, most recently in 2005.
Civilian or Table Medals were awarded by an organization for services in a specific field (such as the Nobel Prize or the Presidential Medal of Freedom). Generally, Civilian or Table Medals are issued for artistic, commemeration or souvenir purposes.
