All details of business terms, prices & descriptions of items offered for sale in this shop are current, subject to change without prior notice & replace any previously advertised details.

Acknowledgment & Acceptance of Orders
No contract will exist between you and us until we have received full payment from you and have dispatched the ordered products. Please note that our initial acknowledgment of your order does not constitute acceptance of that order. You may also receive a payment acknowledgment email from Paypal, this again does not constitute acceptance of that order.

Should we, for any reason, decide not to accept your order we will advise you accordingly and any monies paid will be refunded less freight charges.

All items are sold by the Medallion Militaria on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. Payment must be made or sent upon confirmation of your order and freight costs. Whilst we make every endeavour to ensure that our web site is updated on frequent basis, Please note that ordering though our web site is not a guarantee of sale, should the item have already been sold though other methods.

All items are sold as genuine and original unless otherwise stated. Any item subsequently proved to be fake, renamed or not entitled to bars supplied with the medal, may be returned and payment will be refunded or credited less freight charges.


All payments made through our web site are fully secure, and we accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Paypal payments. However, we are happy to take verbal payments by phone or email. If you are visiting our premises, we accept cash or eftpos transactions in addition to the above methods.

Payment will be charged only at the time of despatch of your order, and will be processed in New Zealand dollars. We also accept personal cheques, but drawn on New Zealand banks only. For new or unknown customers, we will withhold despatch until we obtain a bank clearance (approximately a week). If submitting a telegraphic transfer, please add the bank fees for all orders under $1,500.00 NZ. Please add 4% to all Paypal transactions, to cover their costs.

We offer our customers a lay by plan on any orders over $300.00. We require a 20% deposit at the time of placing the order. This is non refundable, and will cover administration costs. The balance must be paid within a three month period, in regular payments. should the client be unable to complete the transaction during this time frame, we will return the item to stock, and refund all payments, less the initial 20%. Full payment can be made at any time. If paying by cheque, please send three post dated cheques to cover the dates for payment.

  • Should you not be happy with your purchase, contact us within seven days of receiving the order. The item must be returned in the condition that it was sent, and not tampered with
  • Items purchased in error, or as a result of inaccurate translation from the internet system will not be refunded
  • If the product has been offered for resale during the period, the warranty will be voided.
  • The purchaser is responsible for ensuring that the item can be legally imported into their country. Should this result in a return, we will offer a credit that may be used to purchase further items, but no cash credit.
