Is there somewhere you can buy modern versions of UK medals? Like we have Vanguard medals. Looking for some cheaper versions of UK medals.

You could get restrikes from WWME (World Wide Militaria Exchange) but it looks like they shut down last I checked. I needed a 1939-45 Star and they had originals for $20 or restrikes for $15 so I got a real one.

There are a number of companies that make reproduction British medals. I am currently looking for high quality reproductions of the DSO, OBE, MC, DCM, and MM for a display. The challenge is to find one that offers nice quality examples. I have seen DSO reproductions for $38 up to nearly $300 but the photos all look exactly the same. No idea how to choose which company to buy them from!!!
