In the Service of Others
There is no greater courage than to risk
one’s life in the defence of others.
In the Australian military, this bravery in the face of the enemy is recognised by the Victoria Cross, and in civilian life and non-combat military situations it had been the Imperial George Cross until the introduction of the uniquely Australian Cross of Valour in 1975.
IN THE SERVICE OF OTHERS
For Valour and Gallantry
An inspirational collection
There is no greater courage than to risk one’s life in the defence of others. In the Australian military, extraordinary acts of bravery in the face of the enemy are recognised by the Victoria Cross (VC). In civilian life and in non-combat military situations the Imperial George Cross (GC) was awarded until the introduction of the uniquely Australian Cross of Valour in 1975.
In 2014 our four living VCs and sole GC recipients joined forces in support of veterans. From this gathering a unique limited edition medallion collection was created.
In the Service of Others Medallion Set
The complete medallion set includes a single replica Victoria Cross and George Cross. The set also includes a certificate of authenticity featuring citations for each of the recipients. Limited to only 1,000 sets.
Individual In the Service of Others Limited Edition Medallions
Each of the individual Victoria Cross and George Cross 'In the Service of Others: For Valour and Gallantry' Special Release medallions comes with a replica Victoria Cross or George Cross. The certificate of authenticity includes the recipient's citation. Only 1,000 of each boxed medallion will be released.
MATCHING NUMBER SETS
Because of the rare nature of this collection a quantity of "matching number" individual medallions are offered collectively in series. Each separately boxed medallion in the series will have the same edition number, e.g. 501/1,000.
