Worcestershire Medal Service

Worcestershire Medal Service, Ltd. is a manufacturer of State honours and insignia. Established in 1988, they were granted a Royal Warrant as Medallists to Elizabeth II in 2008. Working with the UK Ministry of Defence to assist in the licensing of the production of medals, they became the first company to be granted such a license in 2004. The Elizabeth Cross, produced by the sister company Gladman & Norman Ltd, is administered by Worcestershire Medal Service and the naming of crosses is undertaken by them.

On 1 December the UK Government announced that they had awarded the contract to manufacture the official diamond jubilee medal to Worcestershire Medal Service Ltd. Around 450,000 medals will be manufactured in their UK factory for presentation to Armed Forces and Emergency Services personnel in 2012.
